Best Camping & Sleeping Spots

This is our “Best of Camping” list. Please do not take it as a guideline and then send us angry messages about how terrible the place really was. The list is entirely subject to our personal gut feeling and so highly prejudiced.
Apart from the obvious factors such as setting, view, infrastructure and security many factors combine a great camping spot for us:
- how terrible was the road that day and how glad were we to have finally arrived
- the weather
- what were we need of at that particular spot, e.g. food, diesel engine specialist, power for laptop, sleep …
- the fellow campers at that particular spot
- the hosts
- price for beer
- was the beer cold
- did the lions get close to the camp
- was there a discotheque next door …

… and many more. So some of our favorite spots actually offer poor to terrible infrastructure (such as toilets) but at that time other things were more important and we just did not care … The general question is: Would we go back there? And to these camps we would go back anytime!
Other spots did not make it on the list that are perfect campsites and offer everything, but lack character.

So here it is:
