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

Winter Wanderlust

Travelling in Winter can be quite the experience. You can enjoy the flurries of snow in the berg, watch the rain crash onto the waves through frosted windows or simply enjoy a delicious mug of hot chocolate in front of a crackling warm fireplace. These make for the best of winter memoirs in your travel diaries!
There are so many amazing and exciting gems that are great for exploring during the winter season. We selected a few just to make your choices easier and adventurous.
Make magical and lasting winter memories in 2021 as you missed out last year.

An enriching holiday for Heritage Day!

September is the month in which we celebrate Heritage Day (24 September) – a day that means so much to so many South Africans – because it honours the multiplicity of our cultures and diversity.

First Group is proud to represent that very diversity, by catering to the holiday needs of all South Africans. There really are different strokes for different folks at our premium properties.

In the spirit of celebrating and promoting South Africa’s marvellous wilderness heritage, we have a few local holiday destinations that will bring out your wild side.

Wanderlust – It’s time to warm to winter

It is un-Brrrrr-leviable how quick this year is going, we have chills just thinking about winter (which seems so far away in this hot weather… but winter is coming [ahem Game of Thrones fans]). And yes, winter can be fresh but there’s also so much more to it than just the weather – especially when travelling in South Africa. Now’s a great time to book a winter getaway – after all, the early bird gets the worm.
