There are few things in life as exciting as going away for a break, and nothing quite beats a camping holiday for an adventure.
Whether you’re a city slicker who prefers “glamping” (glamourous camping with all the amenities of home), or a die-hard survivalist determined to start your braai with a single matchstick, there are some essentials that no camping trip can do without.
Camping Tips for the Long Weekend
Plan and shop ahead. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of going away for a holiday, but excitement can quickly turn to tears when you’re three hours away from home and have forgotten something vital – like toilet paper. Make a list of everything you’ll need for the trip and check it off as you pack.
Depending on your destination, you may need to take several days worth of groceries with you. Camp sites are normally situated quite a distance from towns, and no one wants to spend their holiday in search of toothpaste when you could be roasting marshmallows over a fire. Plan your meals and shop accordingly.
