As my Vietnamese wife and I will be touring South Africa, with a caravan, over a period of about a year, we wodered if we would welcome to drop in at the club rallies that are advertised in these forums? Perhaps we would have to registered members, or be invited?

As far as I know, all are welcome to join in a Rally.  You just need to add your name to the list if there is stil space left.

If you contact the chairman of the various clubs and get a list of where they are camping during the year and explain your situation I am sure there would not be a problem. I belong to Trekkers 1 in KZN and I am sure the members would welcome your visit.
Regards MArg

Hi Ole,
we have a business in Hanoi, which takes care of itself, and we are thinking of opening a Vietnamese restaurant in Cape Town or Durban, depending on what takes our fancy, as we tour South Africa. We have wanted to tour South Africa as I have spent a lot of time travelling around when I lived here previously, and want to revisit them now that I am retired.
South Africa, with its problems is still one of the most attractive places that I have visited; it is also remarkably inexpensive for what it has to offer. Oh, I'm also homesick at times!
Cheers.

Well I hope all goes well for you and the family. And yes a caravan is the way to go rather than an RV, as you have mobility still when on a campsite, such as last minute issues such as bread, milk and so on. Good luck and enjoy.

Dudley, come and open your Vietnamese restaurant in Durban.
The weather is great all year round, and we have some wonderful parks, both on the coast and inland.
You would be most welcome to join our club on an outing/s. I can forward you a venue list with all the dates and parks that we visit.
Enjoy
👍

Thanks, Hughie. When last in Durban we looked at 'Highway' - Hillcrest as a possible restaurant venue, but were a little concerned about the popularity of restaurant dining compared to Cape Town. Anyway Durbs is on our touring route, will see you then.

Dudley, I know what you mean about Cape Town, but before you make a hard and fast decision on opening up there, you need to see the "Florida Road" scene in Durban. It has a vast array of restaurants of all persuasions, and is really busy all year round. Happy to take you there when you are in town. Definitely worth a visit. I see Allan has given you my number. Give me a shout when in Durban. Will be my pleasure.
