Omg am looking at holidays July 2019. Nearly considered a safari tent in camping lido,lake garda for 11 nights at 1700 euro / 1500 pounds until i realised no kitchrn sink and no shower or loo. Seriouslt hotels on the lake with brekki included are cheaper than this. We need a campsite as my kids love the entertainment and slides. Soo expensive. Anyone think this too ??

well, you pay for the entertainment and slides... so, I think campsite is still value for money.

Slides as in water slides? So it has a swimming pool but no showers or toilets? But if you mean ordinary slides you could just take them to a park? I am confused.

When my dc were young we always went to France camping, staying on the big sites with pools and water slides. I used to save several hundred pounds by going directly to the campsites own website and booking. I had to pay in euros and engage in a bit of school girl French in email but managed. Have you looked at doing this?

no, just the tent hasn't a shower or sink.
but campside has shower blocks, and they are usually great on eurocamp style sites.

Not sure if they have them on Lido but Canvas Holidats Safari tents have bathrooms, tend to be a bit cheaper than Eurocamp too.

We had a great holiday on Garda but stayed in a mobile home so had better facilities than a tent. How much extra is the mobile home?

It isn't cheap but much more fun than a hotel.
