Send us your top camping tip and win

2014-03-20 15:26
You have to admit there's a certain kind of freedom that only comes with a good-old fashioned, minimal fuss, budget-friendly camping trip.

Are you a happy camper, do you plan a camping trip at any given opportunity, like this upcoming Easter Holidays for instance?

If so, we'd like you to send us your best camping tip or trick. It doesn't have to be too long, just a one-liner telling us one way to improve the experience, braai better or even keep the insects at bay?

Whether your recycle certain things or how to avoid nasty situations only a seasoned camper would know - having learned through trial and error of course.

What's in it for you?

Well beside helping your fellow campers out as we'll compile a list of the best entries - is having a Big Mama sale.

We have a R500 voucher to giveaway - which you could use to buy this three-man tent for instance... but seriously you can spend it on whatever you want or need.

Take a look and then email us your best camping tip or trick to or tell us on Facebook and Twitter. Winner to be announced on Tuesday 25 March 2014.
