Win a Winter Getaway with Mr Price!
[Partner Content] 03 JUN 2014

I don’t know about you, but now that we’ve hit the middle of the year, I KNOW that I could do with a nice break from work! This is probably why the latest promotion from the house of Mr Price sounds so tempting:

Need to escape the grind of the office? A weekend away is probably just what you need to recharge the batteries. We’re talking lazy afternoon braais, pool at the local pub, drinks under the stars and hey, some new gear wouldn’t hurt either.

Mr Price have an epic collection of winter menswear featuring long-sleeved tees, fleece pullovers for easy layering, and sherpa-lined jackets – ideal for those chilly days. There’s also loads of printed and check shirts that’ll take you straight from the office and onto the road in style. If it’s denim you’re after, you’ll find jeans with distressed details and paneled button-ups with worn-in washes.

Right. Just about ready to hit the dusty trail? Then, you’ll want to enter this! Mr Price are offering you the chance to win a weekend getaway for you and three mates – Head to MRP.COM and let them know whether you’d prefer a ‘Berg, beach or bush experience’.

No matter which one you choose, one thing’s for sure – this will be an adventure to remember!

For no reason other than we could (only an hour longer to get home to Gordon’s Bay), we decided to stopover in Swellendam on the last night of our epic honeymoon road trip, where we enjoyed the steak and hospitality of Swellendam (as well as the guest house’s swimming pool) courtesy of Marula Lodge.

Whilst on the Garden Route Knysna leg of our honeymoon road trip, we made an effort to stop at the Thyme & Again padstal (farm stall) to enjoy some of their freshly made food on recommendation of the Montgomery Clan, before making a stop and enjoying a tranquil amble through one of the many fern-heavy forests accessible to tourists in the area.

Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary situated at The Crags, Plettenberg Bay, was another one of the fantastic wildlife-themed stops on our awesome honeymoon road trip. The sanctuary takes the form of a huge open enclosure, through which you are guided and get to witness the various monkeys and lemurs up close and personal, without the usual fencing between you and the primates!

Highlight of the tour had to be the awesome suspension bridge we needed to cross!

Schotia Safaris Game Reserve is a privately held and run game reserve, which offers fantastic game drive packages, which start off in the late afternoon and end up with a great big group supper. Dashing back from our trip through the Addo Elephant National Park, Chantelle and I made it just in time for the start of our game drive – which turned out to be yet another highlight of our amazing honeymoon road trip around South Africa!

No real vacation in South Africa is complete without visiting at least one big game park, so the one that we visited as part of our big honeymoon road trip was of course Addo Elephant Park, where we spotted a grand variety of wild life, enjoyed a good lunch, played the part of tourists, and then acted like hooligans in order to get out of the park as fast as possible in order to make it back in time for our scheduled game drive at the Schotia Private Game Reserve!
