Camping is at its best when you’re having fun with your family and when you can sit back, and relax. The only way you will achieve this is by proper planning and by being very well organised. I always feel sad when I hear people say that they hate camping because it’s uncomfortable or disorganized, when I know that there is a better way of going about it. I believe in lists and organizing our camping gear in our Xcape bush caravan. This is the only way the whole family will enjoy the camping trip so we always try to be as organized as possible.
Places like Westpack Lifestyle and Neat Freak are the best South African stores to go shopping for all things organizing and I’ve compiled a very comprehensive list of items that you may possibly need when camping. It goes without saying that you don’t need all the items all the time but once you’ve decided what type of camper you want to be, you can start removing items so that you get to the bare minimum.
