Hello Travellers… The public holidays are again aligned to give you a full six days off in a row, in exchange for one day’s leave. Just in case you haven’t planned anything, Traveller24 has rounded-up some last-minute ideas
to make the most of the Heritage long-weekend from 27 April to 1 May
– Friday, 28 April is also a school holiday. And as South Africans we know our quick-and-easy escape is simply to pitch a tent, fire up the braai and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. From Tankwa in the Northern Cape to Warmbaths in Limpopo – throw caution to the wind and road-trip to one of these 9 popular camping spots around SA
