There is no easier and cheaper hobby than getting out of the house and going camping.

However, camping has the potential of turning expensive very fast. This is true especially if you are planning to stay for more than a couple of days.

It can be the bank of a river, some forest clearing or the side of a mountain.. the options are unlimited.

If budget is your main concern, here are 5 locations you can camp without worrying about breaking the bank.

1. Warmbaths, A Forever Resort, Limpopo

This one is just a 2-hour road trip from Joburg, which gives you a mix of both the road trip experience and camping too.

For R250 per person per night, you can enjoy your night under the stars. Power is available and bathrooms are in plenty. The resort also comes with other activities like swimming, cable water skies, go-karting and quad biking. These are charged separately though.

2. Albert Falls Dam and Game Reserve, KZN

This one is located about 24km from Pietermaritzburg. The resort is on the shores of one of KwaZulu-Natal’s largest dams. Here you get the chance to combine both game and camping, with zebras and bucks all around.

When not gazing at the stars, you can enjoy a whole catalogue of activities such as boating, fishing or trails. Prices start at R143 for an electrified campsite and R121 for one without electricity. Children under 12 pay half price.

3. Bonamanzi Game Park, Hluhluwe, Kwazulu-Natal

If you’re looking for a great camping inside a game reserve, Bonamanzi is your go-to place. The privately owned reserve is 4000 hectares huge with a lot of diversity. It has been named one of South Africa’s best birding destinations, so if that’s something you think can go well with your camping, why not.

Though there are no lions here, you can spot the rest of the Big Five quite easily.

4. Berg River Resorts, Western Cape 

The resort offers a range of accommodation options for families or small groups. On top of their chalets best suited for families, the resort offers self catering caravan and camping options.

The place can have about 150 tents at any one time, and all these stands have electricity and electrical outlets. Each site also has a braai spot. Ablusion facilities are communal and there’s also a swimming pool on top of a kiddie’s pool.

5. Areena Riverside Resort

Areena has been named of of South Africa’s top 10 resorts for 12 years straight.

It’s a beautiful, picturesque place that gives you a handful of adventure options. Some of these include zip-lining, paintball, archery and quad biking. Being beside a river also brings along other activities like fishing and boating.

The resort is quite popular for team building moments.
