    Hi I saw your chat about the trip from KZN down to Yellow sands. You mentioned a stopover place outside mthata. I requested info but haven’t heard from you. I would be grateful for info from yourself or any other pensioner on regular camping wheels because I travel mostly alone on that route and really need safe stopover info.

    Hi cathy, sorry but i only saw your request now when i opened the monthly newsletter. after a little more research we decided to do the trip in one day without stopping, we did the trip on a sunday as figured the route would be a lot quieter, towns and roads. we left margate at 2 am on a sunday morning with the intention of passing through mthatha before the town wakes up which we did, we went through mthatha around 7.30 am that morning. the whole trip from margate to yellow sands took 9 hours, we did stop once for fuel at a garage approx 20 kms before mthatha , the garage is in front of the b and b were we had planned to stay over but chose not to. i can’t comment on the place as we did not go in for a look , however looking at the place online wilst it looked the part the communications both telephonically and online left a lot to be desired hence we chose to drive through in 1 day, tiring but a good day, we had a quite trouble free trip. we left yellows sands at the end of july this year and are now at green fountains caravan park at port alfred.

    A wonderful treasure of information on this post .

    Thank you everyone.

    I am seriously looking into the possibility of a “Tiny House” The movement is gaining huge momentum in the USA and Australia / New Zealand . There are such beautiful, practical “Tiny Houses” now . The whole “house” built on a trailer..easy to move.

    I was wondering if there are any caravan parks in SA that would accommodate long term “Tiny House” space ???

    I look forward to hearing your views .

    Greetings Folks – we are two pensioners (recently retired) with one small dog (well-behaved, always on a leash).  We are looking for pensioner-friendly caravan parks along the KZN south coast and wild coast where we can spend between 2-4 months at a place (preferably on the beach/close to the sea/beach).  We would welcome any help/assistance/suggestions.  Kind regards, Ben & Anne – email:

    My brother and I are two pensioners who both lost our jobs last year as a result of covid.  We own a caravan and a vehicle.  We are looking for VERY CHEAP/VERY AFFORDABLE camping places where we can ”long-stay”, ANY advice and or suggestions would be most welcome.  My email address is:, I am a ‘retired’educator/ABET & ETD Practitioner, my brother is qualified in 3 trades, we still have got a lot to offer any community where we may find ourselves.  Would really appreciate a response!
