    I am pretty sure most will agree in principle that "overcrowding" (whatever that may mean to you) is not on.

    But the discussion really is about what the Rule says - and that still appears to be unanswered - and not what common sense or subjective opinions or perceptions tells us.

    11. CAMPSITES – Camping base rates include one motorized vehicle per campsite. Additionalmotorized vehicles per campsite are charged at a rate equivalent to the campsite base rate pernight.
    Are you paying double? Well, you should.

    Easiest way to find out is to phone SANPARKS and ask. Never in a million years are they going to tell the OP that it is okay for two caravans to occupy one site and pay for only one caravan and an extra vehicle.

    But if it is okay I would like to know, if the limit is set according to the number of people you can fit 3 couples with three caravans on one site, of as jy regtig die dam onder die eend wil uitruk 6 bachelors met ses karavane, lekker man!

    The accommodation descriptions are clear. To me anyway. No mention of how many caravans/trailers. I have scoured through Sanparks website in the past hour or so and cannot find any such restriction.

    The base rate of a campsite is 2 people and one vehicle. The screenshot is from a campsite type at Shingwedzi. Extra vehicle will be charged a fee. So the OP will pay the base rate plus 2 additional adults and a 'fee' for the extra vehicle. There is nothing indicating that he will be disallowed the extra caravan. This is excluding Tsendze. In fact, we had friends with their Bushlapa caravan join us on our site halfway through our stay at Shingwedzi during on December holiday.

    With the logic some folk use, I now understand why companies have to warn people to the fact that the coffee that they have purchased in a paper cup might be hot

    Ek dink jy mis die punt? Die enigste reŽl wat geld is die een wat SANPARKS publiseer, kyk post #25.

    You also haven't been going since the early 1800's... How dare you?

    Funny that Kruger does not expressly state the one caravan rule anymore I can recall in the 80's and early 90's it was strictly enforced and thus we still book accordingly if we are larger groups going:

    It is specifically still stated on the Karoo Page
    https://www.sanparks.org/parks/karoo...ommodation.php

    as well as Tsitsikama
    https://www.sanparks.org/parks/garde...ommodation.php

    Mountain Zebra
    https://www.sanparks.org/parks/mount...ommodation.php

    Mapungubwe
    https://www.sanparks.org/parks/mapun...ommodation.php

    Augrabies
    https://www.sanparks.org/parks/augra...ommodation.php

    Addo you can in any case barely get a tent in.

    Kgalagadi does not mention the quantities either:

    December I stood at Mata Mata, 3 adults, 2 children, a caravan and 2x2 tent for my mom. On purpose I did not pitch the awning as I knew beforehand it was small stands and consciously tried to minimise my footprint. Then I had a neighbour with 6 adults, 2 cars, a trailer, 3 3x3canvas domes and a coleman event shelter. Every now and then they bitched about the unfair amount of space I occupied.
