So SWAMBO and I recently started the camping thing in earnest after purchasing our Echo 4 in November. So far we have done a 2-week trip to Sodwana and Ponta de Ouro and a weekend at Weesgerus and are planning a West Coast trip in March.

Since we're planning to do a weekend's camping at least once a month, I wanted to hear from the experienced campers, what would you recommend as your top 3 best camping spots within 2 hours of Gauteng/Pretoria.

We like it rough but for now have no solar so there needs to be power points. Preferably lekker off-road to get there. We have no kids.

Your inputs would be appreciated gentlemen (and ladies).
