In an effort to encourage tourism and getting South Africans to think out of the box, Fikilie Hlatshwayo, has written a book about caravan camping.
Titled 'Blacks Do Caravan', Hlatshwayo said the book came about after she went on a three-month camping trip with her family, an adventure she was initially reluctant to pursue and ended up enjoying.
702's John Robbie spoke to the author about why it was important for her to write her book.
Doing initial research, she discovered the country's more than 20 camping sites and a variety of caravans to accommodate different budget sizes.
In the book, Hlatshwayo recounts how her most interesting conversations with people from all walks of life, happened at ablution facilities in the various camping sites and talks about how she was approached to wash another family's dishes.
