Winter Getaway

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.

Lanzerac Manor and Spa (Cape Winelands)

Lanzerac Manor sits in a private wine estate encircled by the Hederberg Mountains in the Jonkershoek Valley.

Soak in the serene beauty of the winelands in the Manor House garden. On offer is mountain biking, hiking and swimming for the sportively inclined and heritage walks, around Stellenbosch for culture vultures. How about a wine tasting tour or a helicopter ride over the winelands and Cape coastal region?

Lanzerac Manor offers elegant dining venues, a private dining room and 24 hour room service.
Pezula Resort Hotel and Spa (Garden Route)
The luxurious hotel is located in the town of Knysna and built to reflect the natural beauty surrounding it. Wake up to stunning views of the Indian Ocean, Knysna Lagoon or the Outeniqua Mountains.

There is plenty to keep families happy, from canoeing on the Noetzie River, horse riding over the fynbos landscapes, practising tennis and archery or golf at the Championship Course.

Enjoy breakfast on the patio of your villa or rustle up something in the pantry kitchen. Zachary¿s, the gourmet restaurant in the main building, unfailingly gets rave reviews. Go African, dining by an open bonfire at The Boma or relish a picnic lunch at the beach near Montrose Castle.
Pakamisa Private Game Reserve (Kwazulu-Natal)
This jungle paradise sprawls over 2500 hectares of wilderness and most importantly, it is malaria free. The Lodge sits on a plateau atop the Pakamisa Mountains, consisting of eight comfortably appointed suites.

Naturally, exploring the bushveld is the number one reason for coming here. From game drives with experienced rangers to bush walks and horse safaris, Pakamisa spoils you. Visit local Zulu villages, or go angling at Jozini Dam, situated one hour away.

Enjoy the many cuisines of the Rainbow Nation and spend memorable evenings around a campfire, under a glittering African night sky

Can¿t decide? Whichever resort you pick, you really can¿t go wrong!
