September is Heritage month and the perfect excuse to celebrate our beautiful country with a sneaky road trip or long weekend staycation. We’ve got the top tips and tech that will make your getaway unforgettable. 

1. Know where you’re going with GPS

Roadtrips should be about exploring parts of the country you’ve never seen before. The best way to make sure you don’t get lost? Google Maps of course. Make sure you enter your destination before you leave home so that the route downloads to your phone. This way patchy signal while driving through rolling hills won’t make you miss the next turn off. 

Smartphones for smart navigation:

              Cubot King Kong – R2999          Honor 10 Lite – R3999 (was R4599)        Huawei Y6 2019 – R2699

2. Stay charged on the road with a powerful power bank

Roadtrips require extra juice, what with GPS running, music playing through Bluetooth or listening to podcasts your phone runs low in no time. Make sure you have a power bank that can handle the load. 

Power banks that bring the juice:

hi 200mAh Power Bank – R99     Rocka 3000 mAh Power Bank – R179    Volkano 5200 mAh Power Bank – R499 

3. Pick your destination based on accommodation you can afford

There are so many incredible places to visit in this beautiful country of ours that don’t have to cost a bunch. Try off-the-grid cottages in remote spots and slow down to the rhythm of nature. If you can’t live without electricity and Wi-Fi pick an affordable AirBNB spot with all the bells and whistles.
