Restcamps are found in several of the major national parks in South Africa and Namibia, and offer accommodation for self-drive clients in some of the best locations. Accommodation is usually comfortable, but fairly basic. There are usually self-catering facilities and often canteen style restaurants if you don’t want to cook. Most are accessible in a normal vehicle, and allow you to explore the parks at your leisure during daylight hours. We generally advise clients to stay at the full service camps and lodges rather than restcamps, but realise for some that restcamps are the best option.
