5 mobile games to play while road tripping

As the festive season kicks off, families will start their trips to the country’s top holiday spots.

If you’re taking a long road trip, there are several things you need to plan for, such as mapping out your route, planning your stops, and ensuring your Car Insurance is in order.

For long drives, especially with kids, you’ll also want to ensure they are entertained – as the aggravation of moody adolescents or bickering children can lead to driver fatigue.

Whether you’re planning a 6-hour drive from Johannesburg to Durban, or discovered A Guide to Namibia that’s worth a mammoth 20-hour drive, mobile games can help your family pass the time – so your journey is just as fun as arriving at your destination.

To help you out, we’ve put together a collection of cool mobile games for your family road trip.
