GallivantingSA founders, Alan and Sandy Morton, seasoned campers with extensive experience of overland travel and camping, conceived the App in a bid to streamline the overall camping experience. The App is an extension of the website, which has seen rapid growth since its launch on the 4th of July 2022.

Alan and Sandy Morton shared, “GallivantingSA is more than an App; its an initiative born out of our passion for camping and the overland travelling community. We aim to provide a streamlined and modern platform for campers to explore the best of Southern Africas camping destinations.”

Developed by beepd, known for SMART Communication Solutions, the GallivantingSA App offers an optimised and seamless experience on all platforms – iOS, Android, and Huawei.

The App is complemented by a YouTube channel offering honest campsite reviews on “GallivantingSA.”

“Camping 101 with GallivantingSA,” is a smaller channel which addresses issues for those new to camping.
