Secunda is certainly an underrated festive season destination in South Africa, and the town makes for a memorable family holiday. As a popular guesthouse in Secunda, here are some of our top tips for visiting our beautiful town this festive season.
Book Your Accommodation in Advance
If you are looking to stay in a comfortable, safe yet cheap guesthouse in Secunda, such as Kaste Guesthouse, it would be a good idea to book your accommodation ahead of time. Many of the best guesthouses get booked out weeks in advance, so do your best to plan ahead.
While Secunda is one of the safer towns in South Africa, the summer months are also known as silly season and there is an increase in traffic accidents and petty crime. Just keep your wits about you as you would in any other place during this time of year and take the necessary precautions.
Pack Your Rain Jacket
Like many other places in South Africa, Secunda experiences quite a lot of rain during its summer months, especially in the months of December and January. While the warm afternoon showers shouldn’t put a dampener on your holiday, it is a good idea to pack some of your rainy weather gear so that you can make the most of your time in the town.
Make Reservations at Popular Restaurants
If you plan on eating at any of Secunda’s more popular restaurants during the festive season, it is always a good idea to make a reservation beforehand. Restaurants can get very busy this time of year with yearend parties etc. and you would not want to be left disappointed, and hungry.
Support Local Businesses
Many local businesses rely on the festive season to see them through the rest of the year. So while you are staying in Secunda, do your best to support the many local businesses that keep the town alive.
