This winter, indulge and pamper yourself at any of these amazing luxury resorts:
Kloofzicht Lodge (Gauteng)
Situated forty minutes away from Johannesburg or Pretoria, in the heart of the “Cradle of Humankind”, an archaeological treasure trove overlooked by the Zwartkops Mountains.
The luxuriously appointed lodge blends charmingly into the landscape, but if you’re an angler, you probably wouldn’t notice.
You will be more focused on getting to one of the six fly-fishing dams. Kloofzicht Lodge is nestled within a sanctuary rich in Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Springbok, Zebra and fabulous birdlife. Visit the nearby Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve and Sterkfontein Caves. Try a guided nature walk, practice your drive on the two golf courses or just float around on the resort’s infinity pool.
Enjoy sunsets over the dam from the Little Foot Bar. Group travellers can savour African food around a bonfire, with blankets thoughtfully provided on chilly evenings.
