Help create South Africa’s ultimate road trip

Posted by MotorHappy on 1 May 2017

Have you ever wanted to pack your bags and go on an epic road trip? Well, gather your friends and family because MotorHappy, a subsidiary of Imperial, is giving away a R50 000 road trip for four to one lucky winner!

MotorHappy is calling on all South Africans to help map out the country’s most incredible road trips on the the Ultimate Journey website. Using submissions and votes from the public, the website will highlight some of South Africa’s best road trips, with the goal of creating the Ultimate Journey across South Africa.

Over the course of the competition, which ends on 31 August 2017, MotorHappy will gather the data and soon South Africa’s most-loved destinations – and the most scenic routes to get there – will emerge. Participants who load a road trip destination or vote for a road trip destination on the Ultimate Journey website are entered into a competition to win a South African road trip valued at R50000, driven in a sponsored Kia Sportage!

To date over 1500 South African destinations have been added to the Ultimate Journey website, with over 11700 votes. The current Ultimate Journey around South Africa features 25 locations around the exterior of the country, along the east and west coast and into the interior, up towards Mpumalanga. Many of the destinations are predictable – think Cape Town, Hermanus and Kruger National Park – but there are a few surprise destinations and hidden gems like Wild About Whisky in Dullstroom, De Grendel Wine Estate in Cape Town and the Gariep Dam bordering the Free State and Eastern Cape provinces.

Here’s how to enter the competition and contribute to the creation of South Africa’s Ultimate Journey:

  1. Go to the Ultimate Journey website
  2. Pin your favourite South African destination to our map, plus an image if you have one
  3. If your favourite location has already been added, give it your vote and add your own comment and insights about this destination
  4. Share your destination on social media using the #UltimateJourneySA hashtag
  5. Get your friends and family to vote for your entry on the Ultimate Journey website
