Renting camping equipment (or buying 2nd hand)

Unread post by charamal » Wed Apr 27, 2016 7:18 pm

Hello,
We will be coming (from Europe) to South Africa for our third family trip this July, arriving in Jo'burg. On the two previous occasions we brought our own tents, sleeping bags etc and then bought the extra material we needed on arrival (and left what we couldn't carry at the last campsite. ) We have a very generous baggage allowance this time, so it's doable but bringing our own kit is a pain and buying gas canisters etc. once we get there, is very time-consuming. I found a company that rents out camping kits at very reasonable rates (called Drive and Camp) but they only operate out of Cape Town. Does anybody know of any other possibilities for renting equipment (or buying second hand) in Johannesburg or Pretoria? We will be heading North towards Marakele on our first day.

Many thanks for any suggestions or advice!

Not to worry, it will move from your Outbox to Sent when George reads it.
