Take The Road And See SA Up-Close This Summer

Thursday, 25 November 2021

"Need a change of lockdown scenery to wind down another pandemic punctuated year? Thanks to Dunlop’s #TheBigDrive Summer Promo, you can now enjoy a socially-distanced summer escape. See South Africa up-close at local reserves and game parks, driving in safety on a set of new Dunlop tyres."

Months of intermittent confinement, and a greater focus on simple pleasures, have seen a growing number of South Africans take to the road to enjoy local travel and tourism offerings. From wildlife reserves, game resorts and national parks, domestic tourism has helped to keep the tourism sector afloat and weather the storm of the past two years.

This summer, Dunlop will again be playing its part to boost the tourism industry, by encouraging South Africans to get out and explore some of the country’s reserves and national parks at discounted rates.

From 22 November to 31 December 2021, customers who buy 4 selected Dunlop tyres will receive a free pair of binoculars and discounted bookings with SANParks and Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife. The offer applies to any passenger car, SUV, 4x4 and light truck tyres.

A URL link and promo code received on purchase will give access to the SANParks offer of discounted accommodation at selected parks and campsites, while Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife will give qualifying customers a 20% discount at any of its 40-plus resorts, plus additional prizes on offer for social media giveaways.

Through its #TheBigDrive campaign, Dunlop will also be showcasing the spectacular array of nature- and wildlife-based travel options South Africa is so renowned for, across its digital channels.

“South Africa is one of the most beautiful countries in the world when you consider its spectacular landscapes and biodiversity. It’s a nature lover’s paradise with great weather, rich wildlife and birdlife, and extensive travel options to suit any budget. But while we’ve always been a favourite for international tourists, it’s really encouraging to see so many more locals now taking a break from their bustling urban lives to enjoy the sheer joy of a road trip and taking in some of the many gems we’re blessed to have at our disposal,” says Lubin Ozoux, CEO of Dunlop tyre manufacturer, Sumitomo Rubber South Africa.

As always, before heading out on that road trip, check your tyres and make sure they are #SaferthanSafe. Visit the Dunlop website for more information, to request a quote or to find your nearest participating tyre dealership.
