Mission Statement

The Caravan Club of Southern Africa undertakes to make the benefits of belonging to the Club so attractive that caravaners will wish to join us, and we will welcome them and nurture them into our activities until they are fully integrated into our midst.

Due to unforeseen circumstances we sometimes have to change Rally Venues

The Caravan Club of Southern Africa is the largest Caravan Club in Southern Africa and holds 6 National Rallies per year on pre-determined dates on which every Region in South Africa will hold a Rally. Every 3rd year Rally South Africa is held in which case there are 7 National Rallies in that particular year.
In addition to this our Regions hold as many as six Regional Rallies making it possible for members to get away as often as one weekend per month.
We are a family orientated Club and our Code of Conduct, which every member is expected to abide by, ensures that the image of the CCSA is held in high regard by the general public, fellow campers, the resorts we frequent and fellow road users.

NEWS

Pretoria Region is the oldest Region in the Caravan Club of Southern Africa and the weekend 17/18 August was set aside to hold their 60th Annual General Meeting as well as their 60th Anniversary Celebrations at the beautiful Klein Paradys Caravan Park outside Britz in the North West

It was a weekend to remember and will surely be an occasion that will stay in the memories of those who were there for a long time to come.

What struck me most about this Region is how they place emphasis on their youth and ensure their wellbeing and involvement in the Region. They arrange their own activities and do fundraising at Regional Rallies. The monies raised are looked after by the Regional Committee and is used to pay for youth activities and outings they arrange time to time.

Time is set aside during the Annial General Meeting where the Youth Leader  presents his or her report on their activities over the preceding year. It was most impressive to see it done as a Powerpoint presentation. Unfortunately we are unable to upload this format so have loaded a .pdf copy which you can read by clicking HERE.

We have taken the liberty of inserting an English translation to the copy of the original  cue cards used for the presentation.

“I am a member of the Land Rover Owners Club (LROC) of Southern Africa.


Attached an extract from the March 1959 "Review", magazine of the LROC in the UK that I have received from Michael Bishop. Michael is the author of "They found our engineer". The story of Arthur Goddard, the Land Rover's first engineer.


On page 10 of the magazine was an article on Caravanning in South Africa and the planned formation of the LROC by Mr Hoffman.


Two typos in the article that should read the Vaal river and Parys.


The LROC of Southern Africa was founded during September 1960. I am trying to get hold of a list of all of the members at the founding of the LROC. It would be interesting to trace if any of them were SACC members at the time.


The three main LROC founding members were Frank Dandridge, Reg Whitley and Bill Siebert.


I thought that the short article and pictures might be of interest to you and the SACC.


Regards


Dirk”
