Spring into A Heritage Day Experience

Spring into A Heritage Day Experience

“Nothing ever seems impossible in spring, you know” – L.M Montgomery.

Possibilities are everywhere, especially when Spring vibes meet Heritage Month celebrations! Flowers, freshness, and festivity reign. Technically, Spring in the Southern Hemisphere only starts on the 23rd of September – which is perfect timing for that Heritage Day Experience.

What does Heritage Day actually involve, though? From dressing in our most iconic traditional clothing to gathering and sharing our culture’s unique food and music, there are no set rules for how we choose to celebrate. Many of us unite in the celebration of Braai Day (also on the 24th of Sept) to celebrate a custom we all share: Tjops (and Dops!) Instead of staying home and sticking close to your own braai this year, we think a Heritage Day Experience can create a blooming effect in both body and mind!

“Do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are.”

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.

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.

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!
