    Lightbulb Best Campsites within 1,5h of Cape Town

    I'm new to overlanding and although I'd like to get away on a multi-week/month adventure the 9-5's got me tied down to weekend getaways. I've been looking online for campsites within a 1,5h travel time of Cape Town.


    Getaway Magazine and all these other camping sites always direct me to the biggest and Top 5/10/etc in the Western Cape or South Africa. I'm looking for real gems, ones where I can pack my Landy Thursday evening and head to camp straight after work from the Cape Town CBD.


    The cheaper the better, no electricity needed. I'm a young working person who's just purchased my dream car I've always wanted - Land Rover Defender. All advice would be appreciated.

    Ashley, congratulations on purchase of your dream vehicle. Slightly off topic, but please post a photo!

    There are a number of places around the Cederburg and Tankwa area, that will tick your boxes and not get you into anything the Landy couldn't handle.

    The drive from Ceres, De Drop, Wuppethal way is very nice, not too far and has multiple good camping sites.

    HI

    Congrats on the vehicle...
    Some nice ones close by that I will suggest is:
    Slanghoek - before Worcester and close to Rawsonville
    Skurwekop - a little bit further just before Robertson
    Montague caravan park - very quiet and peaceful
    Onrus Caravan park - nice trees and walking distance to the ocean...

    Enjoy...
