HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF PUBLIC HOLIDAYS IN SOUTH AFRICA

April is here, and, along with it, quite a few public holidays. In fact, if you play your cards right and have at least 8 leave days saved up, you could very well score yourself an 18-day holiday between the 14th of April and the 1st of May! Here are a few tips to help you make the most of this excellent opportunity. 

PLAN YOUR SELF-DRIVE ROUTES CAREFULLY 
South African roads get very busy over the Easter holidays. If you’re going on a self-drive adventure, it’s best to spend some time beforehand to plan your routes carefully so you won’t run into any undue congestion along popular highways. 

TOP TIP: Keep an eye on the newspaper and listen to the traffic reports on the radio, so you’ll know if any major routes are closed due to accidents or flooding. This way you can alter your intended route to ensure you don’t get stuck in backed-up traffic on the way to your holiday destination. 

GET ENOUGH REST
Because so many of us don’t take a lot of time off, we tend to overdo it a bit when we do go on holiday. We rush from one activity to the next, without using any of our valuable downtime to simply rest and recharge.

MAKE MEALTIME AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE
Another way to keep stress to a minimum over your holiday, is to plan ahead so you can keep mealtimes relatively simple. If you’re going away in a group, dedicate one main meal a day to a certain couple or family, so everyone knows who’s responsible for that day’s food. Breakfast can be a self-serve affair and dinner can be assembled from lunch leftovers – this way there’s also no unnecessary wastage. 

These are just a few of the ways to organise your holiday for maximum rest and enjoyment. Keep your eye on the blog in coming weeks and months for more tips like these. Happy holidays everyone!
