What you need to know:

  • Regular readers of this column will know that I’m a keen camper, particularly in conservancies or national parks.
  • From our picturesque campsite on the shore of the reservoir, we watched an elephant stride along the bank nearby.

Earlier this year, I wrote an article that strayed from the usual style of this column. Instead of describing a single destination or event, I compared a number of self-catering properties across the country. I got some good feedback from it, so I thought I’d do something similar this week – focusing instead on a selection of fantastic campsites.
