The Camper Vans
Situated in the heart of New Forest National Park, New Forest Safari Campers invites travellers to explore the beauty of nature in restored vintage VW campers.
Known as the second generation of camper vans, the first bay window model was introduced in 1967. The fully restored vans are fitted with essential cooking, eating and drinking utensils, beds, linen, tables, chairs, coolboxes, electric hook-up leads, Sat Navs and radios with iPod connectors.
VW T5 Autohaus serves as a perfect home-away-from-home mobile base. These minivans come complete with two-ring gas hobs, grills, sinks, ovens and fridges, as well as diesel heating to keep travellers cosy during colder nights. Sat Nav is provided to keep the holidaymakers on the right track, while the integral CD player with iPod connector ensures musical background.
Groupon’s Guide To New Forest National Park
Established in early 2005, New Forest National Park covers over 500 square kilometres of scenic landscapes and woodland. Serving initially as a royal forest for William I around 1079, the park also offers archaeological monuments dating back to the prehistoric times.
Plenty of land and water activities are available in the park, from guided walks, archery, cycling and treasure traits, to canoeing and raft building. For gaming enthusiasts, the park authority provides activities such as ‘Live Action Video Gaming’, where visitors have a chance to experience a wide variety of military scenarios, while shopping lovers will find souvenirs and local products on traditional markets. The ecological value of the New Forest is enhanced by areas of lowland habitats such as valley bogs, alder carr, wet heaths, dry heaths and deciduous woodland.
