Across the border
You need more than a passport if you plan to travel beyond our border
Make those thieves wary If you’re not using a house sitter, it is a good idea to ask your neighbour to water your garden and house plants often and to switch the lights on and off from time to time. This creates the illusion that your house is occupied. You could also get a timer switch which will automatically turn your lights on and off.
YOUR BEST FRIEND
You may be excited about your holiday, but it’s no fun for your dog to stay at home all alone. Animal hotels are usually fully booked during the holidays. If there is no-one to take care of your pets at home, you’ll have to arrange accommodation for them months in advance.
Do your homework Find out from the camping spots you’ll visit if you need to pack items such as extention cords or a braai grid.
It’s the little things Remember the right chargers, adaptors, extra memory cards and batteries for your camera, mobile phone, tablet or laptop.
Consult the weatherman Find out the weather forecast for your destination. It’s pointless going to the Boland during the December holiday with a suitcase filled with jerseys.
