There’s nothing worse than coming to the end of your holiday feeling as if you didn’t spend your time wisely. Often, we fail to plan our holidays, or plan them too rigidly, leading to disappointment, which means that if you want to get the most out of your time off, you need to balance the two. Here’s how you can make the most of your vacation before you even book your Harare accommodation.
STEP 1 – LIMIT YOUR CHOICES
Having too many holiday options can create stress. Narrow down your Harare accommodation choices or select a place that offers the best of both worlds. For example, if you’re staying at any of the lodges in Harare,you can enjoy going on safari one day,and enjoying water sports the next.
STEP 2 – BOOK IN ADVANCE
Knowing you’re going on holiday in advance will increase your enjoyment of it. It gives you something to look forward to and time to plan your visit and what you’re going to do when you’re there. In most cases, advanced bookings also come with discounts.
STEP 3 – RELAX BEFORE LEAVING
Sometimes the last-minute packing and organising before leaving on holiday leaves you more stressed than ever. You can avoid this by ensuring you plan your holiday with a day or two set aside for preparation, so you can leave without rushing to get everything in order, and possibly forgetting something.
STEP 4 – DON’T STAY TOO LONG
Research shows that the ideal length of time to spend on a holiday is just eight days. Anything longer than this tends to allow boredom to creep in,while a more limited time forces you to prioritise what you really want to do and make sure that you do it.
STEP 5 – END WITH A BANG
The post-holiday slump can leave you feeling blue. Prevent this by making sure the highlight of your trip occurs near the end and not at the very beginning. That way you will depart on a high note and with the memories fresh in your mind.
