    Default camping sites open?

    We are wondering whether there are any private small campsites open near Cape Town area? We are self sufficient with Off Road trailer.

    One of my colleagues is currently camping in the Cederberg, somewhere with private ablution.

    Op "Lekker Kampplekke" adverteer Dinokeng Camp & Leisure Lodge dat hulle ook vir kampering more oopmaak vir besigheid.

    Nou wonder ek: As hulle oopmaak vir kampering is dit dan wettig om te gaan kampeer? Ons weet lodges is wel oopgestel.

    Maar kampering? Ek weet darem nie?

    I also understand some camp sites are open (I suppose it is now up to them to implement applicable social distancing measures), although inter provincial travel is not allowed. Best to phone a specific camp site beforehand and confirm.

    mense het die naweek ook by Dinokeng and Almega gaan kamp....dit het hul net n rukkie gevat om al die vorms te voltooi met aankoms en dan is daar ook elke dag wat hul jou temp moet neem..hul het geen issues gehad op die pad nie

    Yep. Lot of guys camping. You just have to find the campsites.

    My daughter and her mates have been camping near Pongola for the last week and are now moving towards Vryheid for another few days.

    So, I guess it's all in who you know.

    I read lodges and guest houses for leisure within your province. Does that count for camping too?

    No specifics about camping, but then the regulation hasn't yet been published, until then it's not "law" - learnt my lesson by now:
    Accommodation for leisure
    Cabinet has also agreed to ease the restrictions around leisure travel. Currently, individuals are not allowed to leave their homes for leisure purposes. After the release of the new regulations, individuals will be permitted to leave their homes for leisure purposes within the province where they currently live. Let me emphasise, it is only intra-provincial travel not inter-provincial travel. Individuals are still not permitted to travel between provinces for leisure purposes.
    Accordingly, this change has implications for accommodation facilities that are permitted to operate under level 3.
    Accommodation establishments are now permitted to operate for leisure intra-provincially subject to the following: -
    ➢ No more than two people per room except for a nuclear family (parents and their children). Establishments are already legally obliged to require and keep a copy of proof of identity.
    ➢ Short-term home rental/sharing remain closed.

    I doubt camping will be allowed. As the decision makers have no interest in camping nor understand it, so it must be an evil privelaged pastime.
