    I dont think that R500 / night is really that steep. Look whats included in that price, not to mention good security. With the price of hotels over that period at 2 - 5 times that price, it could just be a relative bargain.

    ONE night in a tent at the World Cup this summer could cost England fans as much as a week camping in Kent.

    ANYONE ONE THIS FORUM EVER been to Kent to do some camping?

    For all we know it might be the WORST camping spot in the UK.

    from the article I quote "Four and six-man tents with single beds, lockers and heaters will cost over 40 – more than a week at some sites in Kent."
    Heaters....Heaters?? Camping is NOT for sissies.
