In our last blog, we shared ideas of great day trips around South Africa. This month, we’re keeping things, even more, local – ‘cause local is lekker!
A blissful break at one of our properties simply isn’t complete without “holiday extras” – those unmissable activities that are perfect for a truly unforgettable time. These magical extras are sure to fill your holiday with special moments, wherever you are! Enhance your stay by taking the time to pre-book them, to ensure your holiday is packed full of activities you love… and you could save with early booking discounts. It’s a win-win!
When was the last time you sat back and relaxed on a small boat or barge – just cruising along, taking in the peaceful scenery and sharing a few laughs with your family and friends? On your next visit to the Garden Route, book an unforgettable boat cruise from Knysna River Club or Knysna Chalets. Here you’ll get to explore the lagoon, seeing this breathtaking area from a whole new vantage point. If the weather is fresh, a beanie and hot chocolate will go down a treat, and for warm days not much beats a GnT!
Moving inland… at Qwantani you’ll be amazed by the refreshing solitude and wide-open spaces that you’ll discover onboard their newly refurbished barge. Few places in the country serve up sundowners in such magnificent surroundings – Sterkfontein Dam is calling.
Ride into the hills
The faster life gets, the more it makes sense to slow down on holiday. What better way to pause for a second, unplugging from your phone, work and the news than exploring the area on an enjoyable horseback ride? Many of our resorts offer horse riding for riders of all abilities which makes this a great activity for families and groups of friends. Rides are also different lengths allowing you to choose something short and sweet or a real adventure through the wilderness.
For those who love a little pain or punishment 😉, golf is always an entertaining affair. We’re sure you’ve heard of our championship course on the KZN South Coast at Selborne Golf Estate, Hotel & Spa. Well did you know that many of our properties such as La Montagne have agreements with local courses where you can enjoy members rates – just for the pleasure of staying with us? So great!
Relax to the max
One of the most popular pastimes at our properties is a luxury treatment or massage at La Vita Spa. Get yourself into your partner’s “good books” by booking something special for them or you both. This way you’ll get to make more decisions on what you’ll be doing during your well-deserved holiday (they will love the treatment that much!) plus your partner should treat you like the rockstar you are 😉.
Make something more of your holidays by booking “extras” in advance! They’ll give you #MagicalMemories that you can savour for a lifetime and that’s what travel is all about.
‘Til next time, we hope your holiday dreams keep coming true, they’re just some holiday extras away.
