Good news !

I have seen an advert for durable double matresses (which from the catalogue photo appear to be identical to my single matress which is a canvass fabric type - very durable indeed) adverised in the Campworld supplement to the latest Go ! / Weg (afrikaans version) magazine !

Inflatable matresses - rubberised .

Hi, we found ours at Outdoor Warehouse in Fourways so pretty sure the rest will have them too. We needed ours at Berg en Dal recently so yeah rather safe than sorry. The lady next door to us did not have and drove all over the show trying to find one, not sure if she ever did. It's worth it getting 2 and carrying both just in case one is faulty or gets damaged or whatever, u never know hey.

You should be able to buy them at any caravan store(generallly camp world) I am not sure if stores like ODW stock them but if you cant find one they do stock them in 90% of the shops in the KNP camps.


Thanks for the info. Just called ODW in Fourways. They have stock of the plug.

Hi All,

Just something I saw in Checkers. Very nice little plastic camping table for R99.

In the patio department.

Greetings
Chris

The mattress you mention, is that the canvas one? (No valve, just a hole)


That is the one , it has a plastic plug that looks like a wing nut .

yeah, they seem to be a bit better than the Intex/blue mattresses.
Out of interest, this is what I'm now using on hiking trips.

Does anyone own an Oztent RV model. I need to upgrade from my canvas travel tramp dome which is a little on the small side. I can pitch my dome myself which is only 1.5 metres high. I may have difficulties with taller domes. The Oztent RV is an easy pitch tent and I have only read glowing reports. I would love to hear from anyone who owns one.

I consider a lantern to be an essential part of my camping equipment .
I allways take a lantern along unless I go to a trails camp , this make can be bought for as little as R100 at a general dealer , the mall shops & boutique camping & outdoor stores charge nearly twice that amount .
I use citronella type lantern oil , quite expensive at around R25 per 200ml at the Spar , but that lasts around 25 hours and seems to help repell insects and has a pleasant aroma ..

Mites, we have been going to Kruger for ages, but still new at the camping thing. Every time we go, we forget some important implement or device; hence, we have a half-dozen tin openers and braai tongs. :D We are going next week to Kruger, and struggling to find poles/sticks/guy ropes, or whatever is needed to put up shade cloth on hardish ground. Shade cloth seems to be such a good idea to help demarcate an area around the tent (without, of course, imposing on the neighbors), so we really want to do it. Please advise what the best way of putting up shade cloth might be - the local Makro wasn't very helpful, nor was a couple of mall camping shops. We have interwoven, green, nylon cloth in a roll that would stand about a metre high.

OWN - the camping shops should have separate poles you can buy and then attach your shade cloth. Alternatively, depending on the space you have in the vehicle, buy some plastic poles from a hardware shop that are the right length (they can cut them down for you). Then just use rope to attach your shade cloth and make some guy ropes to hold in place. (look at pictures of commercial lapa shades to give you the idea). If you go the plastic pole route you can end up being very fancy and make a frame too using the angled joints available!
