Camping and Caravaning In Cape Town
  • There are many hundreds of caravan and campsites around South Africa - but very few in Cape Town!
  • The ones to head for are in the South Peninsula, which is an hour from Cape Town centre, but well located for Cape Point, Constantia and great beaches.
  • For good camping head north for three hours to the Cederberg. The Parks Board have a site at Algeria and there are sites at Dwarsrivier and Kromrivier run by the ubiquitous Nieuwoudt family.

The caravan (available for hire) and campsites in the South Peninsula are:

  • the Fish Hoek Caravan Park, right on the beach.
  • Oatlands Holiday Village has both caravans for hire and campsites. Well located close to the penguin colony in Boulders, outside Simon's Town.
  • Soetwater Caravan Park, between Kommetjie and Scarborough.
  • also try the Chapman's Peak Caravan Park
  • there is a caravan park near the winelands and Gordon's Bay called Hendon Park
