Extend those long weekends to stay and play for longer

When last did you have a “playcation?” A holiday that was all play and quality family time? Long weekends offer the perfect opportunity!

A “playcation” is all about having maximum fun with activities that keep the whole family engaged and entertained. This means booking accommodation near theme parks, adventure trails, carnival arenas or venues geared towards families and offering itineraries for all ages. 

School holidays kick in just three months after the festive season, and Easter is already on the horizon, providing some ideal opportunities for your playcation. But did you know there’s an additional long weekend to be had in March, just before the school holidays?

The 21st is a Tuesday and Human Rights Day. By taking the Monday off, you and your family could enjoy a getaway even before the schools break up on Friday. Imagine: no crowds, better prices, the kids haven’t hit that boredom stage yet. Plus, your playcation booking ensures loads of activities for them.

If you usually go away over Easter, it comes early this year from the 7th of April to the 10th, and then it’s back to school on the 12th. Generally, it’s a busy time everywhere, so why not opt for the possibility of a quieter long weekend at the end of April? The 27th is Freedom Day and falls on a Thursday. Put in leave on Friday, and you have another long weekend to book that playcation.

Now is the perfect time to start planning and putting in leave.
