Best Ballito Accommodation for Students

We’re fast approaching that time of year again. 2013 Matric Rage is almost upon us and if your teenager is heading to the coast for the main event then now is probably a good time to start finalising travel arrangements. Assuming your teen is heading to Ballito to celebrate the end of his/her school career, flights to Durban need to be booked and accommodation needs to be finalised. Getting organised early means you won’t be left with less than desirable options and your teen can celebrate his/her rite of passage in safety.

What to look for in Accommodation Options in Ballito

Whether you’re a few kilometres down the road or an hour flight away, you’ll want to be rest assured your child is celebrating in a safe environment. If your youngster has wheels then the first thing you’ll want to do is make sure they’ve abandoned them in favour of walking. That’s why it’s important to find lodging that’s close to the action – the beach, restaurant, party venues, banking and shopping. If safety is of paramount importance then location should be a deal breaker when it comes to the right lodging.

The safest accommodation in terms of proximity can be found close to the shoreline in central Ballito in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal Province. If you’re looking for a self-catering option then try to book a place that sleeps at least 6. Your teen will want to be close to his/her friends and is likely to be safer in a larger group well known to them. Holiday apartments with a braai area and a swimming pool are a major plus!

For enhanced peace of mind book your youngster into a hotel in Ballito. The resort town has many options that can provide an even safer environment for youngsters. Enhanced security measures and off-street parking offered by hotels can go a long way in ensuring a safer social experience.

Matric Rage 2013

Taking place 23 November – 8December 2013, this year’s Matric Rage Festival promises to be a fitting end to the school year. Brought to the beach by Vodacom and BlackBerry, the 2 week long extravaganza features 5FM DJ’s Roger Goode and Fresh, Pascal & Pearce as well as a variety of daytime beach activities.

Now in its 11th year, Rage can still boast the best safety and incident record of any large scale production. Event organisers provide an efficient branded shuttle system to ensure that ‘Ragers’ can get to all events and return safely to their places of accommodation. Further to this, the unique Rage Passports make it easier to track individuals across the different venues where Rage events take place so that concerned parents are able to contact event personnel in case of emergency. Local municipality, police, fire safety and disaster management are fully involved and form part of the intricate safety network set up to further ensure that events are responsible.

Finally you’ll want to ensure your teenager has plenty of airtime (and a cellphone charger), access to taxi fare and sun lotion. Help your child celebrate an amazing end to their school career and let South Africa Hotels help you book their Matric Rage holiday!
