084 447 4666


1-9 October 2016


Date:                 1-9 October 2016
Venue:               Molopo River, North-West/Northern Cape
Cost:                 R3 500 per person
Includes:          Camping & Park Fees, Guide Fees, Dinner Daily
Excludes:         Fuel, Border Costs, Drinks, VHF Radio Hire 


The Molopo River is one of the main and oldest rivers in Southern Africa. It has a length of approximately 960 kilometers and a catchment area of 367,201 sq km with Botswana, Namibia and South Africa sharing roughly about a third of the basin each.

The river rises from a spring at the Eye of Mafikeng and ends its journey at the Orange River at Riemvasmaak downstream from Augrabies Falls, generally flowing first to the west, and then to the southwest from its source.

In its middle course the Molopo River forms a significant section of the border between Botswana and South Africa. River flow is intermittent. It is believed that this river last flood occurred more than 100 years ago. Maybe “global warming” will change that.

Our Adventure begins at the source in Mafikeng; follow it along the Botswana border to the Molopo Game Reserve.
This remote Kalahari grassland and thornveld reserve is an arid savannah region of undulating grass and thornveld dunes offering a unique wilderness experience to the wildlife enthusiast. Many of the game and bird species found on the reserve are endemic to the desert regions of South Africa.

From Molopo Game Reserve it’s on to an overnight stop at Leeupan Guest Farm and our first taste of the Dunes of the Kalahari. Here we will drive a small trail to practice sand and dune driving before settling down to our usual braai and stories around the fire.

From Leeupan we proceed onto Loch Maree tracking the Molopo River all along the Botswana border via the Molopo Eco-Trail. This part of the trail is truly awesome, driving in vast canyons and wide flood plains.

Loch Maree is mainly a sheep and cattle farm, as well as a game farm. Loch Maree is named after a huge salt pan, 24 km in circumference, containing over 9 million tons of salt. At Loch Maree we will tackle a 50km 4x4 trail through Kalahari bush veld and many “Kalahari Red Sand” dunes.

After two nights at Loch Maree we continue onto Kakamas to refuel and take on provisions.
Then it’s onto Riemvasmaak, nestling between the Augrabies National Park and the southern Kalahari. It is a unique, isolated and spectacular mountain desert-like destination, with Namibia to the west and the Orange River to the south.

The scenery is dramatic, with craggy mountains, a hot spring and lots of history, which the locals are very willing to share. Our camp site is at the bottom of a ravine along the Molopo River. Tall cliffs surround you and the echo of bird calls is deafeningly beautiful.

Once settled in you can lounge in the hot springs to soothe away the aches and dust of the road.We will be camping at Riemvasmaak for 2 nights. This will allow enough time to explore the area, and off course complete our conquest by following the Molopo River as it flows into the Orange River, 960km from its source.

On our return trip to civilization we will stop over for a night at Red Sands and visit the Eye of Kuruman.

Great Zambian Migrations Expedition

14-26 November 2016

Venue:              Liuwa Plain NP & Kasanka NP, Zambia
Cost:                 R11 500 per person
Includes:          All camping & conservation fees                          
                           Guide fees                          
                           Dinner daily                         

Tour Details
Each year, Zambia plays host to two of the best kept secrets in the natural world. These wildlife spectacles are only ever witnessed by the avid adventurer due to the remoteness of the areas in which they occur.
This year, we have combined 2 of our most popular tours in order to witness both migrations in one magnificent Zambian expedition.
Liuwa Plain National Park is situated in the Upper Zambezi flood plains of Western Zambia. The park covers an area of 3,600km2 of vast grasslands and wooded islands, and the plain from which the park takes its name is 70km long and 30km wide. The park plays a vital role in the Zambezi's catchment and is flooded from late December to June each year.
Liuwa also forms part of a remarkable annual wildebeest migration route. Herds cover 200km from an area to the northwest of the park in June to concentrate in the southern region of the park by November. In addition to significant wildebeest and Burchell's zebra family groups, Liuwa is home to tsessebe, oribi, Southern reedbuck, lion, spotted hyena and cheetah. Rarer species including wild dog and leopard have occasionally been seen.
Up to ten million “straw-coloured fruit bats” converge upon Kasanka National Park as the fruits of a local tree ripen. These bats roost in a specific woodland and literally cover the trunks of the trees like thick icing. Then at sunset they all take off and fly out to forage. The sky is thick with bats. You can view all this from the 60 ft high hide, in a tree top, next to the woodland. And from this hide, during the day you will see many sitatunga in the swamp below.
These migrations happen in other parts of Africa, but they tend to occur in urban areas, and with the growth of cities, bat numbers seem to be on the decline. To see millions of bats dispersing at dusk against the setting sun is one of the wildlife wonders of Africa, and one that definitely shouldn’t be missed.

Rocky Jocky: caravan-camping, boating and trailer essential.

The Rocky Jocky Caravan/boat/trailer mover is one of thee
tried and tested's of our industry. 

It has a great reputation of
saving lower backs, garage side-walls, lives, ego's and marriages.

It is ideal for maneuvering any of the above into tight spots and the wheels give great traction.

What makes this product a must is the fact that it does not need the caravan's jockey wheel to function, so the jockey wheel cannot break off while operating.


It's a trustworthy little work-horse, offering two models:

The .75 KW model
has the capacity to maneuver a caravan/boat/plane/mother-in-law
up to 1700 kg’s.
R10 500.

The 1.50KW can maneuver up to 3500 kg’s.

R14 000

The handle is detachable to fit into a smaller storage area. 

After sales service is taken care of by Dick himself.


Because the Rocky Jocky is made in SA, all spares and replacement parts are easily
available, with manufacturer Dick van der Westhuizen's
keen eye firmly on quality.

The wheels have 6” tubeless tyres which are easily replaceable should
the need arise.

As the product is
mechanically uncomplicated, very little maintenance is required.



Splendid feature

if you can operate a DSTV remote, you are considered
over-qualified to operate a Rocky Jocky;

It only has one button for on,
and one button for off. So no additional training needed. There we go.

The motor can move forward and backward.


Dick carries stock of the Rocky Jocky so there is no need to wait for Christmas
bonuses before you cuddle your Rocky Jocky

The electric motor carries a 12 month warranty.
The product is available nation wide so call Dick on 083-254-0461.





Penta & Fleetline Limited Editions


A few years ago Kempton Caravans pioneered the concept of gravel road caravans in South Africa with the launching of their very successful Sprite Scout Nomad. Caravan destinations, which were off the beaten track, are mainly frequented by campers. The lucky ones with serious off-road caravans like the Jurgens Safari range suddenly became accessible.

Penta & Fleetline KC

The boys and girls from Kempton Caravans are at it again. 

A few years ago Kempton Caravans pioneered the concept of gravel road caravans in South Africa with the launching of their very successful Sprite Scout Nomad. Caravan destinations, which were off the beaten track, are mainly frequented by campers. The lucky ones with serious off-road caravans like the Jurgens Safari range suddenly became accessible.

This opened up a new form of lifestyle for enthusiasts who wanted the comfort of a more traditional and conventional type of caravan which would not fall apart on dirt roads and could withstand the corrugations of a destination like the Kgalagadi.

Southern African destinations were now within reach for more people and this in turn helped with the growth of the caravan industry.

The concept of living outside the caravan and not inside is preferred by most South African caravanners. The launch of the Sprite range with the outside kitchen was a huge success. 

“We have received many requests for caravan modifications, as many people want to keep their existing caravan but at the same time customize here and there,” said Larry Kreuiter, the General Manager at Kempton Caravans. 

"If only I kept a record of all the ideas that have come my way after 34 years in the caravan industry I would have a best seller on my hands,” he adds.
The request for more outside facilities comes up time and again and the Kempton Caravans team decided to offer the option of an outside kitchen with ample workspace both inside and out.

Air conditioning has become very popular and we have offered this as standard fitment on both the Penta & Fleetline KC. This does not mean that you have to have the aircon fitted. It's your call and obviously there is a financial saving should you choose to exclude this option. By fitting the aircon it meant that we would have to find space for the spare wheel which is housed in the nose cone. The alternative is either on the floor of the caravan or in the tow vehicle. Neither is really an option. We have offered the customer two choices, either have it mounted to the lockable spare wheel bracket on the a-frame or under the chassis at the rear of the caravan.

Another common request was for a solid worktop in the kitchen. Cooking inside the caravan is not always popular with many caravanners. This allowed us to remove the stove, wash basin and tap and utilize this on the outside. Whilst we were busy with the kitchen, we thought that we might as well fit slides onto one or two of the drawers. It's sometimes difficult to access the lower drawers if you are not the supplest of people and if getting on your hands and knees is not for you. 

A very old and experienced customer of ours, Fran's Botha, followed the progress of the Penta KC with great interest and when he saw the drawer on slides he suggested that we fit the same to the bunk on the left of the entrance door as you enter the caravan. 

“It's always a pain to get something out of there if you do not have access from an outside hatch,” he said. 

“The cushions need to be lifted then put on the table before you get on your hands and knees etc,” he adds. This little modification has proved to be a winner, so the moral of the story is listen to the customer.

The current model Penta already has a basin fitted to the outside with a tap housed in a fibreglass holder which in turn is coupled to a 220 volt hot water geezer. What is missing is a decent worktop alongside the basin. Initially we made a steel table which is powder coated but we were not happy with the weight. This is now manufactured in aluminium which is a lot lighter and also will not rust. You have the choice of using the table as a clip on or we can permanently mount it to the side of the caravan. We have done the same with the Fleetline. 

However, as the geezer is an after-market fitment on the Fleetline the client will have the choice of electing not to go with the hot water and once again have a saving on the price.
To make space for the outside kitchen hatch was relatively easy on the Penta. We needed to reposition it about 100mm deeper into the caravan which was not a problem as there was ample floor space. This was not possible on the Fleetline being a shorter caravan with the space from the foot of the bed to the fridge already a bit tight. We elected to remove the fridge and fit it in the old kitchen area. This in turn allowed us to use the space where the fridge was positioned and turn it into a cupboard for extra packing space.

The microwave was also removed and fitted in the outside kitchen hatch. Once again this space has been utilized and closed off with two cupboard doors.
An extra aluminium table is also supplied and fitted to the caravan either as a clip on or permanent fixture to the side of the caravan, left of the entrance door. There is certainly no shortage of work space outside the caravan. A canvas storage compartment fits under the fold out kitchen worktop for those odds and ends like pots and pans that are always in the way.

"If we can tweak certain things to suit individual requirements we are more than willing to do so. We do not run a production line so we are reasonably flexible,” said Larry.

The prototypes are available for viewing on the Kempton Caravans showroom floor. The first 10 units are supplied with a free comforter, cushions and pillow cases.

Bushwakka 4×4 Off-Road Trailers & Caravans

Scroll down to view video!


Sundowner 4×4 Off-Road Caravan


The Sundowner 4×4 Off-Road Caravan fills a gap in the trailer market, as it is a trailer designed for two people which has a caravan-type feel, and is also easy to set up.

Elderly people don’t want to climb up a ladder to sleep, whilst young, adventurous couples want a trailer which can be set up in just minutes. And, of course, the Sundowner trailer subscribes to Bushwakka’slightest, toughest and
best’ ethos.

The Sundowner 4 x 4 off-road caravan is a trailer which comes standard with a CR12 stainless-steel chassis. heavy duty leaf springs, Safari Gas shocks and a stainless-steel and aluminium body.

As tough as it is the Sundowner has a softer caravan feel to its interior.

An integral part of the Bushwakka ethos  is their focus on the client as an individual.  As Johan Cronje, technical manager at Bushwakka put it: "We are not in the business of mass-producing trailers".  The Bushwakka team member pride themselves on their focus on the individual.  So, while keeping to the base concept, Bushwakka will always go the extra mile to help satisfy the client's unique requirements.
  • Compact design

  • Spacious interior living space

  • Sleeps 2

  • Remarkable quick and simple set up time

  • Easy Setup Bush-Fan Canopy

  • Large well designed and easily accessible kitchen equipped for 4

After over 30 years in the caravan & outdoor industry most family companies would think that it's time to consolidate , wind down and possibly sell off and plan for that much needed retirement. "We looked at the options" said Larry Kreuiter,  one of the owners of Kempton Caravans."

We still have an enormous energy in the business and have realized that should we withdraw , it would not be long before we longed to be back in the saddle again. We have the utmost confidence in the leisure industry and the outdoor lifestyle choice that many South Africans embrace."

"The options are endless - from camping, caravanning, hiking, canoeing, cycling, traveling, fishing etc etc. We have the best of climates and landscapes to satisfy the most discernible appetite for outdoor adventure."


Space is always a problem in the caravan game particularly in the metropolitan areas with the huge costs associated with properties and rentals being a huge constraint on dealer viability and growth. Space is available but hardly ever next door! We were extremely fortunate to acquire two properties adjoining Kempton Caravans which has more than trebled what we had available.

As a result Canvas & Aluminium Concepts ( which started off in the tent repair and modification business under the ownership of Clive vd Vyver 15 years ago and had to relocate as they needed more space than Kempton Caravans could provide ) has now been able to return to bigger and better premises." This is good for both of us " said Eduard who  has joined Clive and taken over management of C&A Concepts. "

While we do the normal production runs of bags, caravan & trailer covers, ground sheets and more importantly tent repairs we also specialize in the " one offs" that the bigger players do not want to touch " said Eduard. " We are more than willing to listen to a clients unique request and make something to his spec or requirement."


Whilst still working closely with Ed, Clive has formed a new company called Camp Guru which will now focus on the caravan and trailer rental side of the business ." I agree with Larry " said Clive " in that the leisure industry is still vibrant despite the doom and gloom sentiments out there.

There is nothing like a bit of sunshine and the smell of a chop on the coals to get the SA outdoor lover wanting to hit the outdoors. Many people want to " try before they buy" and I hope to satisfy their need with a clean recent model rental caravan.

We also have the existing caravan owner who would love to weekend with friend or family member who do not own a caravan and do what we call ". Take a mate". In this way we hope to introduce more families to the wonderful world of caravanning and camping. We also have the town house dweller who is unable to purchase because of storage problems and would like nothing more than to take a few breaks away a year in a caravan .

Tala Manzi Weekend with Bushy Trailers
Tala Manzi Weekend with Bushy Trailers
Our Journey started with us picking up our rental Bushy Trailer from Outdoor Trailer Mecca.

You will remember we did a feature on the Bushy camping trailer in one of our earlier posts.
This time around we took the bigger model and tried it out at Tala Manzi bushcamp where there is no electricity - real bushcamping!

We also review two different solar systems for camping - the Tamog system and the Flexopower system.

Tala Manzi Game Farm:  082-820-4117



It is now the second time we rent a Bushy trailer from Outdoor Mecca.  The service clients get is amazing.  Before you hook up and go, you are taken through all the ins-and-outs of the trailer so by the time you reach your destination, you are already familiar with how things work.

The larger Bushy Trailer comes with two large glass solar panels.  All the wiring in the Bushy is done to accommodate either 220V, 12V or solar power.



The Bushy rental trailer is equipped with a 70 Liter National Luna fridge/freezer, 5 wolf-packs for packing space, a two-plate gas stove with a little gas oven which is so useful when heating up food or even baking bread in!


We left Outdoor Trailer Mecca and headed for Groot Marico, a beautiful part of our country with the most amazing variety of natural diversity. We left Outdoor Trailer Mecca and headed for Groot Marico, a beautiful part of our country with the most amazing variety of natural diversity.

From Pretoria, Tala Manzi is about 3 hours drive towards Thabazimbi.


Our reception was welcoming and warm.  Clearly the staff has a passion for what they do.  A clear appreciation of the environment they find themselves working in.

This farm offers exceptional fauna and flora including the big 5!

To give you an idea of how the Bushy Camping Trailer is set up, we put together some video clips. These will be available in the open areas next to and underneath the text boxes shortly.



Tala Manzi is a very special place to camp.  This is unmistakable from the pictures below.  We decided this time around to show more pictures and talk less.  If you are into Nature, Tala Manzi offers endless opportunities for picture taking.  Go and enjoy yourself!


Groot Marico's geological features are characterized by the presence of extensive dolomite and limestone formations. 

This dry Bushveld area offers the most interesting ecological configurations like the natural river "Slip-n-slides" on the Tala Manzi farm - unsurpassed fun for kids and grown-ups alike in summer. Even in winter for the very brave.




For everyone else there are game drives, with host Jacques making the trip unforgettable not only on the game-viewing side but also sharing the most interesting information about the environment which is so unique to this area.

Tala Manzi is situated on the farm Drie-Fontein.  The river on the farm is perennial and is fed by three fountains during the dry months.

This year, after a terrible drought, the farm had unprecedented rain and not only is the river still flowing strong, but the dam on the farm is full for the first time in a long while.


Tala Manzi has card facilities, but should you need cash, the closest ATM is a mere 10 k's away.

The security on the farm is well taken care of.


Rest assured - there is lots to do at Tala Manzi and both you and the kids will have a roaring time!

The Bushy Trailer is one of the easiest camper trailers to set up.
The size of what you tow vs the size of what you sleep in are two totally different things as the size of the trailer is very deceiving.

Call Denine at Outdoor Trailer Mecca Rentals and Sales:  087-508-8293


On the kitchen side of the Bushy trailer there are two sliding drawers;  the one slides out the fridge/freezer and the gas oven/stove combo.

The other slides out a drawer containing the ammo boxes where groceries and utensils are stored.

There is more packing space inside the trailer offering a fair sized cavity for luggage.

The Bushy trailer not only offer 220V and 12V power, but also Solar power so you can literally go anywhere with the Bushy and don't need to rely on 220V power supply.


The Bushy trailer's canopy opens up into a tent as well as a cabin with a full sized double bed.





The panel compilation below is a new development in solar power technology.  It consists of 12 individual solar panel sections and folds up in a neat suitcase type carry bag.

It comes with all the fittings to charge cell phones and generates enough power to keep the auxiliary battery going for hours.

For more information on this product call Warren on 079-230-2360



Flexopower is another great development in the business of supplying alternative power.
Flexopower is also ideal for camping and the outdoors as it is flexible, user friendly and virtually impossible to break.



Flexopower Solar Systems:

Call Will on 072-180-4505



Flexopower systems produces 15% more DC power a day than glass panels.

This Desert 4x4 Solar Kit range is the state of the art solar system suitable to charge batteries even during short stays at camp.

It is light-weight and flexable so it can be placed wherever the sun is - on the ground, on the roof of the vehicle, over the bonnet.. truly wherever.

Again, this product is sturdy, user friendly and virtually unbreakable.  Even when punctured, the panels still work.

It charges batteries as well as battery banks.

LED - What is it all about?
Wandering how to choose an LED flashlight?

Herewith LED 101

Click on MORE...

LED's are all the rage...
But how do I choose the right one for me?


 For all those who have mastered
lumens, cathodes, diodes and anodes;
you can skip this page and go straight
to the Klarus website by clicking on the Klarus Logo at the bottom of the page.

The following article serves the purpose
of giving one a basic understanding of how lighting works in order to assist in making a more informed decision when purchasing a lamp.

All this talk about LED, (Light Emitting Diodes), Lumens and reflector types
can be a bit intimidating. 



To understand the basics will go a long way in making an informed decision
when investing in a good quality flashlight. 

To understanding the nuts and bolts of lighting we start with a comparison between incandescent bulbs and LED’s,
as flashlights operate on the same principles.

Incandescent bulbs are those where
light is created by the use of a filament.

When power is applied, the filament glows, generating heat, in turn,
producing light. 

Interestingly, incandescent lamps
put out 90% of energy as heat and only 10% as light!  They are not energy efficient and longevity is limited.  In fact in some European countries they are banned from the shelves.


LEDs appear to be bulbs but in fact are not. LEDs work because of the diode, a semiconductor electronic component
that contains two electrodes, also
called terminals that generate light
when electricity runs through them.

Each diode contains a semiconductor
chip and a reflective cup.
Where incandescent globes create light through heat, LEDs are the opposite.

LEDs create light though a
"cold process", when power is applied
to semiconductors, they're stimulated
by the movement of electrons; thus creating photons, the light that is visibly seen by humans. 

They therefore don’t need “heat” to generate their brightness.

This does not mean that LED lights don't get hot.  They do.  Manufacturers of good quality flashlights design them to have "fins".  If you look at the picture on the right, you will clearly see the rings towards the front of the flashlight.  All fins are there to increase the surface area and through this provide better cooling.


Incandescent bulbs project light in
every direction where LED's due to
their package design and layout,
project light in specified directions such
as 20, 50 or 120 degrees. 

They put out 30-40% light compared to the 10% of the incandescent light.   

This is the reason why they are so
light on batteries.

So where do lumens fit in? 

Lumens refer for the “amount” of
visible light emitted by a source – the measurement of brightness.
If you’re looking for the brightest
light in the bunch your search will
be very simple: find the lamp with the most lumens. 
If however the LED is not built well
it will not achieve the efficiency
expected from an LED light i.e.
it will use more power and produce
less light.


Unlike an incandescent lamp, which
has a filament that emits light in 360°,
an LED is a small semiconductor chip, which by nature only emits light in
one direction.
LED manufacturers then place a lens
on top of the LED to either narrow or widen this light. Unlike an incandescent lamp, most LED lights come with a specified beam spread. Whether you
need a 10°spot light, a 60°flood light,
or an LED replacement for your lamp
with needs to mimic an incandescent,
be sure to examine the LED light beam spread ratings before you buy


Different reflectors:  Smooth reflectors and orange peel reflectors. 

Smooth reflectors offer the best
"throw" or furthest distance the beam
is seen at, but also shows more imperfections in the beam pattern.

The orange peel reflectors disperse the beam a little more to offer better flood, but don't offer as much throw. Orange peel reflectors also tend to diffuse out
any imperfections or rings in the beam which many flashaholics dislike.

The output of light emitting diode (LED) flashlights can be measured in several different ways. Similar to how different camera lenses are appropriate for taking different style pictures, certain flashlight designs are more appropriate for certain tasks than others.

This is due to the way they are constructed, and is important to keep
in mind when comparing the output of LED flashlights. Some flashlights have
a narrow, yet bright beam.
These flashlights will have higher
"lux," which is the technical term for measuring light output spread over a specific area. Flashlights with high lux
are useful for lighting things up from a distance, but may be less useful up
close due to the narrow beam.

Other flashlights will have wider, more diffuse beam. These flashlights have
lower lux, but it is possible for them to have more "lumens," which is the technical term for sheer light output.

The "hotspot" of these flashlights may
not appear as bright as that of a light
with high lux, but it may light up the entire room better. When comparing
the output of LED flashlights, consider whether higher lux or higher lumens is most important for your task
Flashlights and other hand-held items
are a great place to use diodes because
of the LEDs' durability and the increase
in the life of the batteries.

They build SABS approved light, yet tough off-road trailers to the specification of client’s
needs, backed-up by exceptional after sales service.


During the past year, Bushwakka have been very busy with new ideas and innovative trailer
concepts which were introduced to the market, like the Wakka Wakka and the Fox Trot.

Scroll down to learn everything you need to about the new Bushwakka Bhoma Caravan. 


As a direct result of their pioneering spirit,
Bushwakka is now introducing the all new Bhoma

The Bhoma is a fine combination of the best features of
both the Wakka Wakka and the Fox Trot.  It presents a wide
range of accessories as well as luxury to the outdoor
enthusiast and offers either a 2 or a 4 sleeper pop-top


The construction is based on the proven rugged
galvanised ladder chassis, aluminium top frame and panel construction, keeping the weight down. 

The abundance of interior space offers occupants an
environment which is not cramped. Important notice: 
you can put your clothes on while standing up straight.


The Bhoma is similar in size as to the Fox Trot but with more height allowing access to the main interior.


It has an entrance from the rear with a non-restrictive door entry height.  The main lid lifts on hinges opening upwards towards the front.  A distinctive second pop-up lid creates a large free standing interior. Inside, like the Fox Trot, there are two rows of seating benches which form part of the beds.


Like the trailer models, the Alu Chef swing-out kitchen is situated at the rear of the caravan, with food storage cupboards. 
Side panels open up into a double bed on each side.  Extra storage space is also available inside the caravan inside bedside cupboard as well as under the seats. 


The large aluminium nose cone is divided into two sections of which the bottom section houses the fridge/freezer with additional storage space.


The top half is accessible from the inside of the Bhoma as a large storage cupboard for clothing and bedding.




There are more canvas additions available which include a full kitchen enclosure, shower tent and other custom made options.

What excites first viewers of the Bhoma is the ease with which it sets up.  It is a simple, practical and compact design for the avid camper.

Outdoor Trailer Mecca
A great shop concept! Take a tour with me through the new Outdoor Trailer Mecca based Chameleon Village near Harties

Outdoor & Trailer Mecca opened about a year ago.  What  a great concept and range of products!

Take a tour with us.. 



Outdoor & Trailer Mecca holds an incredible range of camping equipment, from trailer spare parts to tent pegs.

On the trailer side they  sell Afrispoor products as well as their very own Bushy Trailer.

The Bushy is definitely one of the most affordable trailers on the market to date!

For more on the Bushy, see the article on the bushy on our homepage.


The entire showroom is covered by a huge marquis tent, so no matter the weather conditions of the day, your shopping can be done in total comfort.
Outdoor & Trailer Mecca also holds stock of a wide variety of tents and gazebos.

A great feature is that all tents and gazebo's are displayed on the showroom floor, so one can see exactly how big the tents are.
The outdoor shop is something to behold.  If you can't find it in the shop, the friendly guys from Outdoor & Trailer Mecca will source it for you.

Outdoor & Trailer Mecca is open 7 days a week between 09h00 and 17h00!
