YESSSSS, you MAY!

No more lockdown, you HAVE to let your hair down!

After being under strict Covid restrictions and lockdown for so long, we feel that the month of MAY totally lives up to its name with regard to TRAVELLING and other stuff we can do! It is now the perfect time to not only think about it but to book to see the things and places you’ve always wanted to do. It is safer NOW to travel after all. Book straightaway and have yourself and your family an unforgettable experience in one or more awesome places around the country.

To travel is to be free!

“There is something in us that refuses to be regarded as less than human. We are created for freedom.” – Desmond Tutu
April arrives with fun and festivities – Easter, family time, and Freedom Day. The month has so many holidays that it’s the best time for a gorgeous getaway! Whether you’re planning a solo trip, family holiday or a romantic rendezvous, travel will never disappoint.

Bush, Berg, or Beach? Take your pick!

Can you believe it’s already the third month of the year?! You’ve worked so hard for the last two months, you deserve to treat yourself to a weekend away – plan your next super-relaxing vacay now! Too often we wait for holidays, the festive season, or a special occasion to travel. Author, Germany Kent wrote, “happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for life to begin and start making the most of the moment you are in.” If the past two years have taught us anything, it’s that life’s too short; you have yourself, your health and your family – pack your bags and get going already

A little bit of love goes a long, long way… 

French novelist, memoirist, journalist, and women’s rights champion, George Sand, wrote that there is only one true happiness in this life – to love and be loved. And while it’s easy to become jaded at the concept of Valentine’s Day, we’re a bunch of suckers for love! No, seriously… We LOVE love – and we love getting to find new ways to spoil the special person who lights up our world.

Happy 2022

2022 is all about twos for us: twice the fun, twice the love, and twice the number of vacays as we head back out into the world.

The last two years have been difficult: we’ve discovered new variants, adjusted to working from home, and found ways to exist within the new normal. But the world is finally opening up again, and it’s time to take advantage of all the wonders that South Africa has to offer. We have a clean slate and a fresh start, so let’s start getting ready to make your 2022 one for the ages.

Let’s celebrate the most magical season of the year together!

We’re so glad to be sharing peace and harmony with you as we end off another remarkable year together.

2021 was filled with highs, lows, challenges, triumphs, worries, and more… but, we’ve gotten through it. No matter the trials that come, we are stronger together, and this year has proved that. We are so grateful to you, our First Group family, for being a part of this journey with us. So, in that same spirit, as we look ahead to 2022, we are filled with excitement: a new year, a fresh start, and the promise of the unexpected – let’s make it one for the ages, with plenty of vacays!

Christmas and New Year are a time for family, with good food, warm days, and plenty of R&R. Of course, the best place to do that is at one of our resorts, where you can unwind in unmatched bliss

Most of us would probably love to travel more. There’s almost nothing better for the soul than to just pack up and escape with your loved ones to the coast, the Cape, the countryside or the mountains for a few days of chilled-out bliss … no emails, no deadlines, nothing to do and all day to do it!

Unfortunately, travel can be so expensive, right?

Sure. But it doesn’t have to be!

Springtime adventures

What a gorgeous time of year it is! Spring is the season of new beginnings, when days become longer, the weather warmer, buds unfold, animals awaken and all around us is a celebration of life and the promise of a fresh start.

Spring is for waking up to a delicious breakfast in bed on a bright morning.
It’s for getting out and into nature.
It’s for gentle hikes alongside meandering countryside streams with the scent of blossoms in the air.
It’s for comfy shoes and sun hats, warm breezes and cool drinks.
It’s for suntanning by the ocean, cocktails by the pool or sundowners by the mountains.
It’s for luxurious spa days and lazy afternoon strolls.
It’s for romantic beach walks, cool dips in the deep blue sea and fish braais under the stars.

Following are some of the best ways to celebrate the gorgeous change of season and experience our remarkable country in all its ‘blooming’ glory.

It’s Springtime! Emerge, escape and exhale … at our amazing resorts!
