Lekker Kampplekke

Firm family favourites

Family camping trips can be tricky. Sitting around a campsite all day, content with taking in and appreciating the natural beauty while you do nothing more exhausting than simply relaxing and staring into the campfire, is not everybody’s cup of tea. Some campers – especially the younger generation and the little ones – prefer plenty of action, activities and facilities to keep them busy. It is precisely because they have so much to offer visitors that Forever Resorts are so popular. With resorts spread across the country there is something to suit everyone’s taste. In addition, they bear the stamp of approval from Rikus Truter, of Lekker Kampplekke.
