i heard that springbok atlas, Port Elizabeth depot have six campers which they are renting out at very good rates. They will no doubt have full information at hand since they are also tour operators and a major, national coach company.

How many days do you have?

The loop you are talking about is about 3000km.

Unfortunatley 2 weeks only. This I know is a sin. We want to see the countryside and we are used to travelling long distances in outback Australia.

Hi Anyone4Coffee,

Maybe if you give us some idea of your routing and where your matches will be played, we can assist with accomm recommendations.

What time of the year will you be traveling?

I've dealt with Britz/Maui (lamlee's given you the web address), and they may also be able to assist with stayover venues.

You'll find there are magnificent places to stay all over SA, and your campervan will give you lots of flexibility. It's a fairly popular means of travel here!

And if you're used to the outback, nothing will scare you on the long journeys.
