The Dakar Rally is one of the most memorable motorsport events in the world. It takes place each year in South Africa and this year will be no exception. As a result of the high profile event it attracts thousands of visitors and you will certainly need to have a good camping experience if you are going to make it to the event.
As there are different types of camping that you can choose from, it would be a good idea to plan your own camping adventure. In this article we will discuss the types of camping that you should consider before going to the event.
First of all, the one thing that you need to consider when booking your camping trip for your next Dakar Rally is the number of people that you will be bringing with you. There are two ways to do this. You can go ahead and contact your chosen company and tell them your number of people so that they can arrange a camping area according to your requirement.
You may also decide to camp outside and just set up a tent around the car park. This will cost you less money but you must ensure that it is properly waterproof and that there are no holes in it. Make sure that your camping equipment is strong and can withstand the cold weather. Also, it is important that you leave your vehicle at home, as the vehicles there are not covered by the insurance policy.
The second option is to go around the caravan parks and other camping areas that are there. Again, you have to plan your itinerary properly, so that you will be able to cover all the necessary things that you will require to make your stay at the campsite comfortable and enjoyable.
You need to take note that while you may think that you will be able to get enough sleeping accommodation at the campsite, there are chances that you might be disappointed as well as this could lead you to an uncomfortable stay at the site. Therefore, it is very important that you have a proper checklist before you even book your tent for the event so that you will know what you need to carry at all times while you are at the venue.
The next thing that you have to consider if you are going to come for the Dakar Rally is the time that you will have for the camping. Most of the camping places will require you to stay on site from six to ten days. However, there are some places that allow you to stay in the tents for a few days. The important thing here is to find out how long you are allowed to stay at a given camping spot and to find out whether you will need a tent that can accommodate your family or friends.
There are many other things that you need to consider before you go for the event. Before booking your tickets, make sure that you have all the details in your hands so that you can be prepared for what you are about to do.
