Alice Springs Campervan Trip – Ayers Rock, Kings Canyon & More!

Hi, Angie from Salamanda Travel here. After nearly 10 years of helping clients with their Alice Springs campervan hire holidays, I thought it was about time I visited the Red Centre myself. So I convinced my husband, brother and sister-in-law to leave the kids at home and join me on a 5-day camper van holiday to Alice Springs, Ayers Rock, Kings Canyon and everything in between.

I’ve outlined a day-by-day account of our recent trip for your reading pleasure. We hired two Apollo 4WD Adventure campervans to experience the Outback and couldn’t have been happier with the campers. I specifically wanted a 4WD campervan so that we could travel on the unsealed Mereenie Loop Road. This is a popular travelling route with our customers and I wanted to see it for myself. So read on and I hope you find my blog interesting and helpful! Continue reading “Alice Springs Campervan Trip – Ayers Rock, Kings Canyon & More!”

Las Vegas Campervan RV Rental Parks

Let’s do the maths: 30 Foot RV + driving down Las Vegas’ casino strip = nervous breakdown, right? No! If the thought of tackling Vegas’ legendary casino strip in a large motorhome makes you shudder, think again. Las Vegas caters surprisingly well for RV rental holiday-makers and there are definitely other ways of negotiating the casino strip without sending your heart rate through your RV’s roof.

Las Vegas is located in the state of Nevada, about a 4.5 hour drive inland from Los Angeles. It is the gambling capital of the USA, but is also home to some great family attractions and exciting nightlife. There is so much to do that you could easily spend days in Vegas without putting one dime into a slot machine. If you are considering an RV rental vacation on the west coast, then Las Vegas should definitely be on your “to-do” list.

You can collect your RV (lazy speak for “Recreational Vehicle”) in Las Vegas itself, or an equally popular option is to hire out of Los Angeles. Continue reading “Las Vegas Campervan RV Rental Parks”

Camper Van Hire for Music Festivals

Music festivals are very popular in Australia and offer music lovers the chance to see some of their favourite acts (and discover some new music talent) in their own backyard. Well, not quite in their own backyard (not so good for the neighbours) but close enough. Music festivals range from small folk festivals through to pumping dance marathons in both country and city areas.

Lots of the festivals run for 3-4 days, so once you’ve begged, borrowed and stolen to secure tickets, your next consideration is accommodation close to the venue. Ever considered campervan hire for your next music festival? Lots of people have! Campervans offer an affordable and easy way to travel to and from your chosen festival, as well as providing instant accommodation close to the action.
