August is for the beautiful ladies! While any day makes for a great chance to celebrate the phenomenal women in your life, National Women’s Day on August 9th gives you one more reason to do just that.
This month, we as South Africans and people around the world will celebrate the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela. He was crucial in liberating our country and establishing democracy. Madiba was also known for his love, support, and selflessness.
International Mandela Day takes place every year on 18th July (Madiba’s birthday). But what is the significance of it? For some, it means dedicating 67 minutes to a selfless deed, for others it’s just a day off from work! However, we can ALL heed the call to do something and recognise our individual power to make a difference and change the world.
June is for chillin’ and grillin’
“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” – Billy Graham
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.
“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.
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
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.
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.
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
