Try a group called The Golden Oldies. A bunch of pensioners with branches all over the country and I believe they try to camp at least once a month for a few days.

Hopefully Neill and MArg read here. They belong to a club in the Durban area. Maybe you should do a search on all their topics.

Found one their postings. Unfortunately not much info except the name.

It all depends on the club. If you don't enjoy the one, try another club. We are on our 20th outing with Trekkers 1. We were lucky, the first club we attended we liked.

Must mention the postings date back to 2013. Update needed.

If you ask Admin nicely they will help you make contact with them.

Another posting by Marg.

What I like about Trekkers is that you can try out 3 times before joining. If you don't like it just don't join. Then move on to the next one. If you keep trying before joining and can not find even one that suits you, then I would say clubs are not for you.

You did not like the first club you tried to join and was against the club idea, but once you shopped around you found one you liked.

Everyone should be treated the same as everyone pays the same fees.
Committee members should stick to committee business. A big problem in some clubs is when committee members think they own the members and try to control their every movement. At Trekkers we all do our own thing. There are afternoon teas and braais lit but nothing is compulsory. If you want to chill out you can. Well that is what they advertise as a perk of the club.
I like Trekkers because it suits me with Marshall, as mentioned before he is a disable child, and he takes up a lot of our time. If it was compulsory to join in with everything we would not have stuck this long with them.

So my advise is keep trying until you find a club that suits you. I am sure if you move your club you are with now would welcome you to camp with them when you are in the area again. I have seen this with Trekkers. They really welcome a visit from past members.

I tried a couple of years ago to find "Golden Oldies" who were then based in Pretoria, but it appears they have been inactive since 2012.

Suggest you go onto the Home page of this website and click on the Tab  CLUBS, you will find a lot of info on all active clubs in your area. It looks like KZN and Cape are very active.

Good luck and happy camping for 2020.
