GREYHOUND’S Customer Care Manager, Juan-Pierre du Buisson, bids farewell to summer days and says hello to a mild South African winter, spent exploring what our gorgeous country has to offer.

The PE Express, in conjunction with Greyhound, will help one lucky reader and a partner to explore these beautiful destinations in either the Eastern Cape or KwaZulu-Natal.

We are giving away four tickets (these are return tickets for the winner and a partner) valued at R2 500. All you have to do is submit where you think the hidden gems (destinations) in the Eastern Cape are.

South Africans are incredibly lucky that we don’t experience the bone-chilling winters that most of the world does. Sure, it can get a little nippy, but nothing that forces us to run for the covers and wait out the winter months. The milder winters that we experience offer us the perfect conditions to hit the road and explore South Africa, which is just as beautiful in winter as it is in summer. South Africa offers uniquely beautiful winter scenery and the cultural diversity makes for a rich experience.

Throw in the added perks of cheaper accommodation, quieter roads and less crowded holiday destinations, and travelling during the winter season becomes a tempting option for anyone. Get your friends and family together, dust off the old map and awaken your soul with a trip. After all, travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

How to enter

Let us know what your favourite hidden gem in the Eastern Cape is by posting it on our social media pages – either Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You can even load images of your hidden gem if you like, but it is not compulsory.
