Recommended Campervan Hire Drives in South Africa


Using Durban as a base, drive through the stunning hilly midlands to Royal Natal National Park, across the Battlefields to visit a game reserve and then to Zululand to relax on one of the coastal beaches. Rest in Bonamanzi Game Park or Dolphin Holiday Resort. Discovered by the Portugese on Christmas day, it still remains a breath of fresh air and a happy place for one to relax and enjoy picturesque scenes of nature and beaches. See the Valley of 1000 Hills and see mile after mile of sugar cane plantations and other farmers, hike around national parks, and see rugged landscapes. Or instead of walking, learn to scuba dive in Sodwana Bay which is one of the most popular dive sites in South Africa. Whatever you choose to get out of your experience in Africa, ZwaZulu-Natal will help provide it.

Desert drive:

From Upington to the Kalahari Desert and the famous Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, where you can see red dunes, grasslands and woodlands as well as lions, cheetahs and wildebeest. Make a stop at Augrabies Falls. Stay overnight at Kalahari Monte Lodge Caravan Park or Augrabies Falls Lodge & Camp. Augrabies Falls is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the beauty one can find in South Africa’s deserts and parks. This granited eroded, 240 m deep and 18 km long, waterfall is a wonderful and worth the trip on it’s own. Yet if water isn’t your thing, the Kalahari Desert will surely not leave you thirsting for a better photograph. This 900,000 square kilometre savannah will make you feel so small as you look across the barren land. It’ll truly help you appreciate your comfortable RV!

Free State:

This is one of South Africa’s least visited states. Using Bloemfontein as a base, drive through this semi-desert to attractions such as the Vredefort Dome and the Golden Gate Highlands Park. The adventurous can even explore Lesotho. Stay overnight at Golden Gate Highlands National Park, Mimosa Gardens Caravan Park and countless other sites. At this time, Lesotho is urged not to be visited, but for the adventurer – take a look at one of the politically changing countries in the world. For those wanting to play it safe but still have fun, Vredefort Dome 300 km wide crater from an impact 2 billion years ago! Now go from a deep crater to giant hills, Golden Gate Highlands 340 km squared of awesome limestone cliffs and Afromontane forests!

South African Weather Overview

Being surrounded on three sides by ocean gives South Africa a predominately temperate climate. Its varied elevations and its location in the Southern Hemisphere have a lot to do with the country’s climate, which ranges from extreme desert in the northwest to subtropical near Nelspruit and the Kruger National Park, and along the coast of the Indian Ocean. In cities in the southwest corner of the country, such as Cape Town, the climate is not unlike that of cities with a Mediterranean climate, with wet winters and dry summers. The central region of the country, which is where Johannesburg is located, experiences hot and wet summers, and sunny and cold winters.
