6 reasons to visit the Gauteng Getaway Show

The Gauteng Getaway Show is back at the Ticketpro Dome this weekend (4 to 6 October), delivering more than just a jam-packed travel and lifestyle expo. It’s also a fun outing for the whole family and offers enthusiasts edutainment galore. Here’s why you shouldn’t miss it!

Fun for the whole family

Worried that the kids will be bored as you drag them from stand to stand to plan your next holiday? Don’t. With a kiddies and toddlers play area and a variety of adventure stations for kids of all ages, they’ll be begging to stay longer. Virtual reality pods, wacky wheels rides, a parachute ride and putt putt will provide hours of entertainment and excitement for the young and young-at-heart.

Extreme makeover of a bakkie into the ultimate 4×4

Witness a vehicular facelift of epic proportions as the winner of a prize valued at R177 000 has his 2018 Ford Ranger transformed into a custom-built road trip vehicle. Taking place live over the three days of the show, and involving the modification of everything from suspension to tyres, this is an overland enthusiast’s dream come true. Dad will love it!

Live music, beer tent, food trucks and market

Make a day of it! Enjoy free entertainment and a variety of tastes to satisfy your cravings, including an SAB beer tent with live bands throughout the day and food trucks such as Strip Cheese, the Grill Cherrie, Stuff Churro and more. There’s also a market for some retail therapy, offering Qualito Craft Distillery, Rowdy, Spirit Collection and Scampi Braai, to name a few.

Photography workshop

If you’re a photography enthusiast, you’ll really enjoy honing your photography skills with a wildlife photography workshop by Michael Tucker and a landscape photography workshop by Robbie Aspeling, brought to you by Big Five Photography. Attend one for R150 or both for R250 and you get free entry into the Getaway Show. Each session lasts two hours. The first with Michael will take place at 9:30am and the second with Robbie at 1pm, on both Saturday and Sunday. Seats are limited. Book your spot here now, or on Quicket.

Over 150 travel and adventure stands

The Gauteng Getaway Show is renowned for providing travel inspiration, particularly for those in search of adventure on the African continent. This year will be no different with 150 exhibitors providing a one-stop-shop of travel destinations, accommodation, outdoor gear, 4×4 products and accessories, motor homes, caravans and trailers, camping equipment and adventure operators. This is the perfect place to plan your December holiday or making the adventure you’ve been dreaming about a reality in 2020.

Win, win, win!

Your ticket into the Getaway Show automatically entitles you to enter a variety of competitions with the chance to win amazing travel prizes. The two major competitions are a one-week stay in Mauritius for two people, valued at R40 000 sponsored by Getaway Travel. The second is a trip to Madagascar for two people for seven nights worth R56 500, with flights sponsored by Airlink.
