Hi

See that most camp sites cost about R400 per night, that is R12.000p/m. What kind of prices can one get when spending a month+ at the same place?

Hoping to spend a year camping around SA but seems a bit pricey

Hi David

Welcome to the forum, all the way from Norway.

Most campsites offer long term and or pensioner discounts.

These mostly charge in the region of R3000 pm.

Not sure if they charge Foreign citizens a different rate!?

Thanks. We are both SA citizens so that's no problem.

Just miss SA too much and want to get a taste of Africa again without knowing where we would like to settle.

We just returned from Swadi (not a sea side camp) and paid R3099.00 for a 30 night stay. The resort is close to Hoedspruit in the Mpumalanga province.

Short term camping outside school holidays can be less expensive than the R400 per night you mention, if you are a pensioner.  We are in that category and mostly pay around R200 pn.  This differs from camp to camp and not all offer such discounts. 

If you intend staying at national parks or Western Cape of Natal provincial parks, you should consider buying a so called "wild card"  You have to pay a daily concervation fee at all these parks and even a week's stay at Kruger for instance, makes you break even.  You can buy such a card at the first park you enter.

And some more info: long term rates and pensioner's discounts are mostly only available in off season periods.  During peak periods you will be very lucky to pay only R400 pn and you might even have to cough up R1000 pn or more.  Do make enquieries at possible camps.  Most of them have web pages or at least email addresses.

Pensioners discount. They ask for your ID # I assume over 60 gets the discount which right now is 40% (depending on the season) otherwise 20%

Here in Limpopo, Modimolle at Klipspringer the going rate for long, vary from R2k - R2,5k/month.

This depending on the chosen stand.

Us paying: R2k/month, including electricity, because we bought our own private bathroom and only paying for our own gas.

This is next to Water Mountain in the Bushveld.
