A new kid on the block in the travel magazine genre arrived on our shelves about a year ago. Its aim was to provide another choice to those who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and travel. This magazine was aptly title Go!

For many years the Getaway magazine was the definitive mag in this genre. I know of people who collected these magazines as reference sources and make no mistake, it remains an outstanding magazine. (Subscribe to Getaway here) However it is quite something when a newcomer takes the honours as the Best Travel Magazine at the ADVantage Admag Awards.

The Go! magazine however is a breath of fresh air. It has an easy-on-the-eye layout and typeface and the content is fresh and informative. It has become my mag of choice for information on travel in South Africa. A great aspect of the mag has been its recent focus on some of the smaller towns in SA. These are the small towns we so often bypass as we hurtle along the National Roads.

I highly recommend the Go! magazine and wish the publishers, editor and staff well as they continue to grow from strength to strength.

The magazine is currently running a competition for new subscribers :
