I'm in the process of relocating to Durban (coastal part of South Africa) and toying with the idea of launching a caravan park. Instead of the standard format where an operator offers guests a site for their caravan, I'll be managing my own caravans...meaning my guests will arrive without caravans, but sleep in caravans.
The idea is to offer budget accommodation to my guest, similar to backpackers who target no frill travellers.
Am interested in hearing from operators doing a similar business and what pitfalls to lookout.
Just a quick question, do you need special planning permission for your glamping and tent sites? I was thnking of buying some land in the South West and allow people to camp for a couple of months per year, perhaps in the summer holidays
thanks, and sorry for sniping this thread!
