Video: Sun, speed and camping fun at kykNET Buite Expo in Sondela


If you are ready to say goodbye to the winter cold and put your camping shoes back on, this weekend go and visit the kykNET Outdoor Expo which takes place between 28 and 30 July in the Sondela nature reserve just outside Bela-Bela.

As one of the largest of its kind in South Africa, it offers something for every pocket and taste, whether you are looking for your first entry-level one-man tent, or want to upgrade to a luxury caravan.

Unlike at stores, the kykNET Buite Expo offers buyers the opportunity to see and experience products as they would actually be used in nature thanks to the safe farm atmosphere in which it takes place.

Rugby fans are properly spoiled this year thanks to the GT Camper Sportpark Ommivuur, where the famous Toks and Chops-presenter Hamilton Wessels and his rugby guests will talk and tell stories.

Of course, the Springboks’ showdown against Argentina in the Castle Lager Rugby Championship is broadcast live on big screens.

Even if camping is not part of your to-do list, this unique expo’s wide variety of exhibitors will pique even the biggest city kid’s outdoor interest: From 4×4 rides and entertainment to, of course, the best outdoor products.

Great local artists, including Pieter Smith, Fatman, Soné Joubert, Droom Sindroom, Dewald Dippenaar, Jennifer Zamudio, Arno Jordaan, Pieter Koen, Jakkie Louw and Charné Grabie, will provide entertainment during this outdoor light expo thanks to Hankook Tires.

Hankook 4×4 Extreme Competitions, André de Villiers van Others 4×4 ‘s obstacle courses, Action Ford Modimolle’s all-new Ranger Raptor experiences and helicopter rides are also on the menu.

Various kykNET actors from programs such as Deep Waters and Domestics are going to lecture each other on Saturday at a potjie cooking competition presented by Jimmy’s Steakhouse Sauces.

Festival-goers can also look forward to delicious food and a variety of refreshment gardens, which will serve everything from tea to wine.

The gates open already at 09:00 and the expo lasts until Sunday 30 July at 14:00.
