The 5FM 5Drive team head out on their fifth annual Heritage Tour this September, a tour that sees Nick Hamman and the team get off the beaten path and uncover South African gems along the way. From 12 – 24 September, the team will once again set off on their trek around the country in what is best described as a love letter to South Africa. This year the team will share insight into positive stories from the different parts of the country as well as the wonderful sights and sounds.
For the past five years 5FM presenter Nick Hamman has journeyed through South Africa, celebrating its diversity and beauty. Last year, when he moved to presenting the afternoon drive show, he took new team members Jude van Wyk, Nadia Romanos and Bibi Mbangula along for the ride on a trip that saw them swim with dolphins and encounter the Big Five at the Kruger National Park.
This year’s 5D Heritage Tour kicks off in Polokwane where the team is meant to visit young farmer Ipeleng Kwadi in Brits, Mukula Village and Moutse before setting off to the Natal Midlands for a stop over at Nottingham Road and Howick, where the team will visit the Nelson Mandela Capture site. Another notable destination includes a visit to restaurateur and TV personality Bertus Basson in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape, seaside escapes along the Eastern Cape and Knysna and cruising through the inland in Bloemfontein.
“As always, the Heritage Tour brings South Africans the best of the people, places and hidden gems that make this country great. And this year, even more so, as we’ve had so many hardships endured, the tour hopes to be a beacon of hope – a love letter to South Africa focusing on the incredible things that make this country such a great place to live in,” says Nick Hamman.
Listeners can tune in everyday on the 5Drive (weekdays, 15:00 – 18:00) to follow the journey and join the conversation using #5DHeritageTour across all the stations’ social media platforms.
