Touring South Africa by Road


How to tour South Africa in a caravan

Having a caravan to tour any country is a blessing but when that country is South Africa it’s even more so. To check out all that our beloved Rainbow Nation has to offer is something many of us dream of and caravans can be the perfect choice of touring vehicle.

So, how can you tour this sensation country in a caravan?

Get your caravan up to speed

Before you set out, make sure your caravan is up to speed and ready for action. This means checking the physical condition and investing in a service as well as packing all of your essentials.

From basic tools and spare equipment to clothing and camping accessories, you’ll need to tick off a long list of supplies when getting yourself set up.

Finance your purchase

There are more ways for people to purchase a caravan other than the long process of saving for years before making an investment. With Carfin financing solutions it is possible to get finance on a caravan to begin the dream tour earlier than imagined.

By having the choice of having a personal payment scheme for up to 60 months that won’t change it gives more freedom to the buyer. Plus, by using the online calculator there is no hours wasted online, on the phone or with paperwork.

With this in mind, here are some of the prime touring areas to visit that have a wealth of caravan sites to choose from. Whether it is a ‘back to nature’ type site or something a little more modern there are options for all.

Eastern Cape – from golden beaches to snow covered mountains, this place could be anywhere in the world.

KwaZulu-Natal- a play den for adults, this area is full of spectacular mountain ranges to climb, miles of golden beaches to stroll across and historical battlefields to explore. You can see more things to do on the official tourism website.

Mpumalanga – entrance to the famous Kruger National Park and awash with cultural and historical towns to tour in a caravan, you can learn much about South African history by heading here. Additionally, this is where 20,000 Flamingos gather to provide an amazing spectacle every Christmas.

Northern Cape – after the incredible and tiring drives you have endured in the caravan, relax at the cape with thundering waterfalls and ocean views to keep you company.

Western Cape – finish the trip off at the Mother City full of festivities, winery tours and conflicting landscapes.

The above locations would make a caravan trip around South Africa seem like a world tour. With varied and flexible financial solutions, from a company like Carfin Finance, could the dream caravan tour be a more realistic dream than first imagined?
