Last night the Dutch booked their place in the World Cup Final beating Paraguay 3-2, it’s now also prompted many of their fans to book their camping spot in Johannesburg where the final takes place.
For the duration of the competition hundreds of the orange clad Dutch Football fans have following their team in campers vans and a moving tent city.
One resort to have the pleasure of hosting the Dutch is The Berg River Resort in Paarl. Normally quiet in the winter they’ve had a bumper season with many fans opting to camp to save money and also soak up a great communal atmosphere.
It’s not been just tents there’s been an double-decker bus, Land Rovers VW Beetles and trucks all kitted out with an orange paint job. The camper vans were hired out from a South African company with some unfortunately breaking down on the way, the Dutch are hoping their team doesn’t suffer the same fate in the final next Sunday.
