If there is one thing South Africans are, it is resilient and determined to have fun for their year-end holidays regardless of what may be going on in the world. Right now, while we are not permitted to travel to foreign destinations it is the best time to rebuild our tourism industry, and we certainly won’t be losing out because sensational SA offers world-class year-end vacations!
We have incredible packages to places that many foreign tourists only dream about and at a fraction of the price of visiting international destinations. We know that holidays are all about stimulating the five senses – superb sight-seeing, the sounds of the bushveld at night, the taste of the finest wines from the Cape, the feel of soft beach sand under your feet and the amazing aromas of the culinary delights offered in our world-class restaurants. So, let us give you just a few samples of great year-end packages we have on offer…
Wine and dine to your heart’s content
The Western Cape offers everything the tourist could hope for regardless of the type of experience you are seeking. A favourite is the gourmet capital of South Africa, fabulous Franschhoek, where the wines flow and are usually perfectly paired with some of the finest cuisines in the world. For those who prefer the city, there is a great package available to locals only in Table Bay at the sensational Sun International hotel – and for those who want to be right in the thick of the action, we have wonderful offers in Seapoint too!
Cruise the Garden Route
Making your way from the Cape to the north, why not combine endless scenic beauty with the smell of the ocean, long walks (or ziplining) in the forests and taking in the ambience of the delightful seaside towns and villages dotted all along the famous Eastern Cape Garden Route? While in Knysna, one of the oyster capitals of the world, enjoy a great stay at The Rex Hotel. It captures the essence of four-star luxury and offers travellers a gateway to world-class restaurants, blossoming forests and the shores of the serene Knysna lagoon.
Our incredible bush breaks
There is just nothing as thrilling as a new game sighting as you make your way through the veld in an open-topped 4×4. We have so many wonderful game reserves and lodges in South Africa that we are spoilt for choice. Just one particularly unique package we have is located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve – part of the Greater Kruger National Park. It is Kings Camp, a 9-suite, 20 sleeper lodge that faces an open savanna plain with an active waterhole where the ever-changing vista displays exciting new game sightings every few minutes.
Magical mountain top moments
Heading for Kwa-Zulu Natal now, you can enjoy the magic and majesty of the mighty Drakensberg mountains, where you can take simple family walks, world-renowned hardcore hikes or even an exhilarating helicopter flip – so close to the peaks that you feel as if you can reach out and touch them.
Glorious cosy winter lodges have melted into beautiful summer resorts at this time of the year. Resorts like the renowned Little Switzerland with a history that spans over a hundred years, from its start as a tea garden to its transformation into quaint, Alpine chalets and hotel rooms with breath-taking views of the pinnacle of our South African landscapes.
