Mal Kamper explores all aspects of camping on kykNET from Saturday 8 January, 2022 at 7.30pm.
“This series is about how beautiful our country is with all its wide-open spaces and all the things you can do when you get away from the bright lights of the city,” says Dewald Visser, director and presenter of the show. “We wind down in nature and embark on a variety of outdoor adventures in stunning places.”
In Mal Kamper you won’t see any traditional campsites. Dewald takes his well-equipped
Suzuki Jimny and trailer to some of the most remote places where he cooks on an open fire and gets the adrenaline flowing with a range of activities.
He’s a keen mountain biker and loves rowing, mountain climbing and diving. He also enjoys a bit of angling.
But it’s not all about roughing it in the wilds. Dewald also explores glamping, camper vans, luxury tents, house boats, mountain huts and other lovely spots.
Is this a show only for campers?
“Definitely not,” says Dewald Visser. “We show a lot more than just camping. We have something for 4×4 enthusiasts, hikers, mountain bikers, anglers, and for all those who prefer comfortable camping.”
He says he never sets off on a camping trip without these three things: “A good camping chair, enough dry wood and everything I need for cooking.”
Camping out with his wife, Sylvia, and their canine children is always special for him. “Camping is about more than sitting around your tent. We always pack things like bikes, running shoes and fishing poles. We both love cooking. So, for us, camping is also always about the time we spend around the fire with our pots and cooking utensils.”
