I was fortunate to spend two weeks at the ATKV Eiland Spa in Limpopo, in the middle of the Hans Merensky nature reserve. This is a family type resort and not the type of place if you want to spend away from other people in the bush, not seeing your neighbours. That being said, the camp sites are fairly big. There’s huge amounts of space. There’s a lot of bush around you and it is a very pleasant place to camp.
If you’ve got a family, especially with younger children, this is definitely a place to go and relax.Continue reading… ATKV Eiland Spa
Sometimes when you arrive at a campsite they either don’t have braais available or they’ve got built in braais which are not in a convenient place and in that case, it’s very useful to have a portable braai.

When I camp, we typically don’t use the water from the caravan’s tanks, we find it a bit weird in taste. So I usually purchase five or ten litre still water containers to take along. The problem with that of course is decanting it into cups and glasses from the large container. I’ve got a six year old and this is just much too big for her to handle.
So now I’ve got to take along an additional container that contains a little tap, pour the water over into that, and then use that to decant the water. Something else that I need to lug along, and it takes up space.
What’s the solution?Continue reading… Making life easier with the Endless Vision Water Pump

When I started looking for an “alarm system” to use in the caravan tent, the Lumeno 18 LED Sensor Light with optional alarm looked like just the thing. I bought two of them and use them every time we go camping, but not quite in the way you might think.Continue reading… Review – Lumeno 18 LED Sensor Light with optional alarm
Often at camps I see the typical black light/UV insect zappers hanging in a tree and every so often you would hear that very satisfying sound of “tzzzzzzzz” as an insect is fried by the high voltage. One less mozzie to bother me I would think. Getting one always seemed like a very good idea so I started to shop around.Continue reading… Review – Kellerman Black Light Suction Trap Insect Catcher
I am now totally confused and honestly do not know what to believe. Are black light bug zappers an effective control against mosquitoes or not?Continue reading… Are Black light bug zappers effective in killing mosquitoes?
One of my pet peeves in life is mosquitoes. The sound of a mosquito buzzing overhead while I’m trying to fall asleep immediately gets my rev counter in the red.Continue reading… Zappem’ Dead – Camp Savvy’s answer to mosquitoes
