So, you’ve got your tent, your got your buddies, and you’ve booked the time off work. But where to go in this big wide world? Well, here are three ideas of places that will be truly worthy of your time. They are North Devon, Keya and California. Read on to find out more about what they offer, and what makes them so fantastic.

 

Croyde, North Devon, England

Many people who go to Croyde return year after year until the place become their second home. Right on the coast, it has a top-quality sandy beach, plus a small, local village. The village is equipped with a couple of pubs, a few surfing shops and an amazing ice cream shop. Baggy Point headland looks down over the seas and makes for a fantastic easy-access walking trail. You’ve got places like Barnstaple and Woolacombe close at hand. The first is great for your standard amenities, like supermarkets and restaurants. Meanwhile, Woolacombe is another one of North Devon’s gems. A traditional seaside town, it has arcades, ice cream shops and huge beaches. As for where to pitch your tent? There are a number of options. Ruda holiday park is an old favourite though the prices have increased dramatically over the years. Ocean Pitch Campsite offers a more affordable alternative. One last thing. Croyde is home to the annual Gold Coast OceanFest; this year it will be taking place from the 17th to the 19th of June.

Ideal for- family camping trips.

 

Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, Africa

Still got ‘safari’ on your bucket list? Then this is the place to be heading. Here you can camp by the water’s edge, on the Mara river. You’ll be able to see the wild animals any time of year. However, if you travel in July, August, September or October, this is migration season. Animals including zebras and gazelles make their way to Tanzania and back again. It truly is a sight to behold. By camping, rather than staying in indoor accommodation, you’ll be at one with nature. Plus, Kenya’s notoriously hot weather will make for an enjoyable night’s sleep

Ideal for- safari camping trips.

 

Yosemite National Park, California, USA

Like your camping experience with a side order of black bears? Then this is the place for you! However be warned that as nearly all of the park is designated as wilderness, you don’t have access to the normal amenities we’re all used tol. So, that’s no cars and no electricity. You can, however, pitch up a tent in numerous places throughout the park. And, as the area is around

3,081 km², you’re sure to find some free space. Where you pitch up will depend on the time you’re travelling. Camping here is ideal if you’re on a tight budget. That being said, there are a number of lodges throughout the park too. Oh, and if you do encounter a bear while you’re there, here is some advice on what you should do. Plus what you should not do. Spoiler- don’t approach it!

Ideal for- adventure camping trips.

    I would love to go to the Mara in Kenya. It really sounds like a lovely place to camp in. The photos are really appetizing. Please tell me of any bookings that i must make prior to travel? Do I have to book space at the Mara river camping site?

    Yosemite looks really nice but also very dangerous ! Can be nice challenge for some people.
    Safari is definitely on my bucket list but sadly no budget for it yet.

    I would go with Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, Africa if I have the chance. This is interesting. I love the idea of camping and being a part of nature. Whenever I have a chance, I always go with my families. Indeed, I am struggle about what essential gears should I bring on a 3-days camping. Do you have any suggestion on this?
    Thank you for your info and please keep it up.
