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.
