The festive season is nearly upon us! And there’s no shortage of events taking place around the country to cater to every inclination and taste.

And because Woodford Car Hire is all about offering deals to suit your preference and need, we’ve put together a list of a few places you might want to visit this festive season.


Nedbank Golf Challenge

Thursday, 5 December 2013

Gary Player Country Club, Sun City, North West

The Nedbank Golf Challenge is South Africa’s premier men’s tournament, and while it doesn’t form part of any major tours, it does attract the world’s highest-ranking players. The prize money – totaling $6.5 million – has something to do with that, but for spectators, the thrill is in watching the likes of Louis Oosthuizen, Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia, and spending a few days at Sun City.

Situated in the North West, Sun City is a luxury resort that features a water park, animal farm and a cultural village. If golf isn’t your thing and you’d like to get away from the Gary Player Country Club, the resort is on the edge of the Pilanesberg Game Reserve.

Simply rent a vehicle from the Woodford branch at OR Tambo International and plan your journey into the North West from there.


Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens

Saturday, 7 December 2013

Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape

Port Elizabeth plays host to rugby’s abridged version of the game when the IRB Sevens Rugby World Series comes to South Africa on the 7th and 8th of December. Growing in popularity over the years, the Sevens Series takes place in nine countries, with the state-of-the-art Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium the venue chosen for the third leg of the series (following The Sevens Stadium in Dubai, UAE).

Rugby isn’t the only focus as festivities include live entertainment and events taking place at Port Elizabeth’s beaches.

Fly in for the weekend and hire a car from Port Elizabeth International Airport so you can make your way to the stadium, along with all the other scenic venues The Friendly City has to offer.


Cape Town Summer Market

Saturday, 14 December 2013 to Monday, 30 December 2013

Company Garden, Cape Town, Western Cape

The Adderly Street Night Market has been reborn as the Cape Town Summer Market and is the perfect destination to visit and shop at during the festive season. With long summer days and the charming Cape Town CBD to take advantage of, the Company Gardens is the perfect setting for a family outing.

There are more than 200 stalls selling fashion and artisan goods, a lifestyle and eco tent, picnic areas and a daily Garden Party.

While you might want to explore the Company Gardens and its surrounding areas on foot, your visit to Cape Town would be helped along by hiring a Woodford car at Cape Town International Airport and then traveling into the city.
