Alistair welcome to the forum.
Most resorts will offer pensioner rates and even better ones for month or longer stays. However you need to plan and shop around for the holiday periods especially over the Christmas period. Coatal resorts over Christmas are usually a no no.
Rates range from R850 to R 3000 pm depending on what you want from the resort and where it's located.
Eiland spar for winter mounths,
Welkom tussen ons ander.
Do not forget "the one on the beach", Scottburgh Caravan Park. Close to all the amenities. We have been here close on 3 months now and still enjoying it.
Hi Alistair welcome to the Forums. My folks have been caravaning as pensioners now for about 20 years and when they book or arrive at a place they ask for pensioner discount and 95% of the time they get it.
Hi and welcome to both of you. We have been touring the country and some of our neighbouring countries for more than 10 years and have no intention to stop any time son!!
Wonderfull life and you meet lots of lovely people.
We keep record of the Parks we visit on our website www.flipentilla.com and Tilla's diary is available on www.flipentilla.co We do not show rates and tarrifs on the website. as it is just not possible to keep it upto date. We will however start marking the parks where we enjoyed a monthly rate, as we are getting a lot of requests for this info.
Feel free to contact myself or Tilla by E-Mail should you require further help or information.
As popular coastal resorts get full over the December holidays, you will probably not find discounts easily. We camped at Strandsfontein near Gansbaai a few months ago and discovered that they do cater for such campers over this period with affordable camping. Strandsfontein is a splendid camp although the special pensioners' section is in an area seperate from their normal camp but I think still quite acceptable. I would advise you to confirm a camping space just about yesterday wherever you plan to stay.
You will battle to find any coastal resort which offer stands below R3,000 over the December holidays and ever less that will allow pets over that period.
Your only bet will be small inland municipal parks like Albertinia, but remember that these places are not 5 star facilities!!
I am not doing the permanent camping thing yet but would also recommend that you travel in land during the festive seasons. You will surely find better rates there.
After the holiday rush is over you will have the sea resorts all to yourself.
Baie dankie vir al die mense wat soveel informasie deel, veral die maandelikse tariewe. My voete begin jeuk!! Groete Nick
