perfect for a family day out. there are many species.
be careful, it's not really a sanctuary...

African Dawn Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary -33.91613, 25.10942

Remote camping. Rugged and beautiful. Great place for star gazing.
Pit toilet is clean and the water via a hand pump is clean. $6 honor system fee to overnight. The short hike to the falls is well worth the time. Bring your fire wood with you if an outdoor fire is in your plans, none available in the vicinity.

We slept 3 nights here. The station closes at 23:00 and returns at 06:00. Quiet place, friendly staff, clean restrooms and convenience store. Internet works great, even in the parking lot! We were unable to supply water, as it was out of stock on the day

Dormimos 3 noites aqui. O posto fecha as 23hrs e retorna as 6hrs. Lugar tranquilo, funcionários simpáticos, banheiros limpos e loja de conveniência. Internet funciona muito bem, até no estacionamento! Não conseguimos abastecer água, por estar em falta no dia

Axion gas station with wifi -39.93297, -71.06836

Stayed overnight with no issues. Not a knock from anyone including the police. Woke up to a beautiful sunrise. Note there are two parking areas. The lower one is closer to the river and more discreet, though I missed it entirely arriving at night. There is a paved road leading down to it at the end of the upper lot closest to the entrance from the main road (furthest away from the pedestrian/cyclist bridge). There are porta potties and a bike fixing station.

Would not recommend for overnighting if you want to sleep. Maybe with 4wd the far end of the beach from the main parking area would be okay. Stayed on a Thursday, enjoyable day on the beach not too busy. Mostly rocky in the water but mix of course and soft sand on beach, a few palapas. Starting around 9 pm there was a constant stream of locals coming to party with loud music, excessive drinking, vomiting, etc. until maybe 3-4 am. A few people used our van to prop themselves up to go to the bathroom, despite the nearby porta potties, leaving their mess and toilet paper around our van. The area was scattered with bottles the next day and we cleaned up what hadn't been shattered, but a beach cleanup crew came by a bit later.

Playa el Tule (Boca del Tule) 22.95770, -109.80062

Super honest and very helpful. Jaime also speaks some English.

automobile navaro 21.99800, -99.02139

Beautiful spot. You are right on the river and you can take your pick of where you want to tent or park up. The water level of the river did not change when we were there. Lots of birds. We were alone apart from locals walking their dogs in the early evening.

Camping juntos por america -33.91115, -71.80650

open from 6am to 10pm.
going from SA to Lesotho. very quick border (15 minutes for the 2 sites, nobody, no queue), just stamps to the immigration and paid 75 rands for Lesotho tax road with receipt (55 if you have a local car or 125 if you have a truck). all the prices are written and you can pay with SA notes. no bribes. friendly people at the 2 sides. no more covid restrictions.

Tele Bridge Border Post -30.43225, 27.56757

very bad road but worth the visit. amazing landscape.

Place at the river -29.79450, 27.61409

Spent 3 nights here and felt safe. Other than the people who decided they needed to park right next to me despite having plenty of room to spread out a bit and opening and closing car doors repeatedly until like 1 am it was pretty peaceful and no one bothered me. Would stay again if I found myself in the area.

Excellent place to eat! A little pricy, but very good. Also, there is a HUGE parking area. I didn't stay overnight. Lots of people park on Christmas circle right across from. Here though.

Red Ocotillo 33.29132, -116.29488

Beautiful place! There is a small supermarket in the village, the owner speaks English very well.

Wadi Tanuf 23.04858, 57.47545

Beautiful newly built campsite, one of the nicest we have seen on our trip! Very clean ablutions, green grass, big fire place and braai area, outside kitchen and a nice pool overlooking the Zambezi. Very friendly South African owners, who want to make you feel at home. USD 10 pppn.
Far enough from town to have a quiet night (only hearing the frogs). Recommended!

kukutana -16.20164, 33.62807

Fantastic overnight option when traveling I-30. Just about 5 minutes from town (which looked nice and has anything you need). The police come by with a registration card. It’s such a pretty area you’ll probably be tempted to stay longer if you only planned to stay one night.

Titus County Freshwater Supply District 33.08893, -95.01427

Safe place, big space, small market, good wifi

Integral Gas Station -25.49366, -54.71405

La via es funcional y pavimentada, el problema es que para tomarla se debe ir en contra via por dos cuadras en el sitio llamado La Curva, nosotros la tomamos siguiendo a dos vehículos locales, sin problema.

Road closed -17.12452, -71.78182

Impossible to access to the laguna Leija and the volcano Lascar from here because of the gate locked early in the morning… (not sure if it will open or if you need to pay the access). What a shame.

Chceikh is the man for getting visa, insurance.
Phone number is still active, so write him 1-2 days before you cross the border and he will be there and he gives you infos what you need. He is also available if you come by plane. He is the best fixer and extremly helpful. He charged us 20 Euro and invited us for some food and tea. He also gave us a contact for the Senegal border and checked the day after if everything worked out.

This campground is marked as closed in the app but we found it through and it is very much open. We camped in our car at a tent campsite. Winter rate is $14/day. Free hot showers - available to non campers for $5. I believe there are also boondocking spots along the road on your way in. The campground is open year round!

Mills River 35.40636, -82.66551

Stayed one night. Peacefull, quite and safe and the few people we met were friendly.
The beach is beautifull, very quite, almost noone there. Good spot to run away from the busy beaches of Puerto Vallarta or Sayulita. Awesome sunset.

Litibu beach - 2nd access road 20.80814, -105.48012

Very good stay at this campsite. The couple are always ready to help. They were great tips for making changes to our vehicle. We recommend this campsite 100% The price to date for two people and a van 4000 Pesos

Solentiname -40.72328, -71.67970

Very good location, you can walk to city center and to the pier to grab a boat tour
The bad point is that is almoçar impossible tô get water in the hotel, I have 13 mts of José

Localização muito boa perto de tudo, a parte ruim é que é quase impossível pegar água na pousada, tenho 13 mts de mangueira e não consegui pegar

Pousada Encanto Abrolhos -17.73695, -39.26393

Very nice desert, much space around. Firm sand to drive around. There are some nice valley further along the ridge. No internet with Stc there.
Very busy at weekends.

We got our 3rd party insurance and ECOWAS Brown Card here. Insurance is for one year but for a sedan car it only costs 5.000 naira. Brown card for 1 month was 5.000 naira, so 10.000 in total. Extremely professional, would absolutely recommend.
Just note that they do not have the brown card in there and had to ship it from Port Harcourt. But it was ready the next morning.

Close to the main road, big secure parking, double room for 4.800. Staff very nice and friendly.

Enotel Hotel 6.18620, 6.73526

Great campsite. Clean, nicely thought through, lovely owners. Taking great care of the area and wildlife. Highly recommend.

Warthogs Safari Camp -16.52864, 28.83062

Dirt parking lot for a couple trailheads at this wildlife refuge. Stayed overnight and was the only person parked when I arrived and when I left. There is an outdoor toilet but didn't check to see if it was locked or not. There are no "No Overnight Parking/Camping" signs, only signs to not park on the main road leading up to the parking lot. No patrols when I was there. Don't believe I had reliable cell service with T-Mobile.

Trailhead Parking @ Mason Neck Wildlife Refuge 38.64842, -77.16497

This is where we parked when our Jeep came out of the port at the last minute and we needed a safe place to put it. 24-hour parking attendant and security cameras, plus fairly easy to get in and out. We were charged COP 130.000 for 4 days. We did have to go in the next morning to sign a contract, since it was multi-day. Recommended spot.

Getsemani Parking 10.42033, -75.54707

This place should not be missed!!!
Hot thermal sulfur water spot! Public and free pool for swimming and relaxing in 40-50°C hot sulfur water. Used from a lot of locals....Nice to get in contact too. The pool is directly on the sea, so you can switch the waters also.
Hot showers with the same water available too.
Open 24/7 all year around!
Highly recommended

Hot Spring Water 43.20993, 27.94043

Excelente lugar. Se siente seguro xq hay camara de seguridad x todos lados y todo el día hay una persona de seguridad de un taller mecánico. Axel (encargado del Hostel) es muy copado y permite el uso de las instalaciones y wifi. Ducha caliente!! 😁..lo que si te pide a cambio es hacer una reserva trucha en Booking para dejar una recomendación del Hostel. Cuento esto ya que para hacer eso se necesita tarjeta de crédito. Nosotros no teníamos y nos dió a entender que sin ese intercambio la cosa no iba. Cómo ya estábamos ahí pedimos prestada la tarjeta de un conocido para hacerlo (es solo xq Booking pide eso como condición, no xq te cobre la reserva). Si no conseguiamos nos hubiésemos ido xq "es necesario reservar el espacio para que se de el intercambio" (dixit Axel). Nos quedamos 4 días y todo fluyó joya.
Súper recomendable
