The one thing I love about travelling and exploring new destinations, is that nothing is ever as it seems. That is exactly what we experienced at Fordoun Hotel and Spa in the Kwazulu-Natal Midlands, where you get to relax in a luxurious flotation pool that was once a dairy farm silo in which maze was kept. Like I said: Nothing is ever as it seems.
We recently had the privilege of staying over at the newly renovated Hartford House in the Kwazulu-Natal Midlands. This is where you need to go if you are looking for a Bridgerton-inspired stay in South Africa – whether it’s for your honeymoon, anniversary or just a romantic getaway. Here’s why.
It’s not often that you get to wake up to the sound of roosters while cocooned in crisp, white bedding – especially ten minutes away from Jozi’s OR Tambo International Airport. At the Radisson Hotel & Convention Centre, OR Tambo you’ll quickly learn how to have a blissful staycation in the heart of Johannesburg.
When it comes to my romantic berg bucket list, I’ll always choose misty mountain getaways over sandy toes on an island. I love the mystery of these romantic berg hide-aways, the inexplicable inner peace that comes with it and the deep, meaningful rest it forces us to initially endure and finally enjoy. Not to mention the fact that you get to drink red wine and sit by the fire in February as if it were already winter. That, and a lot more, is what you’re to expect at Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse.
I am a hopeless romantic and a dreamer. Not just in the month of love, but always. I dream of the days when we can travel across the globe again. Days when the Coronavirus is something of the past. And, when that day comes, I would like to travel to all five of these destinations. Here is my list of the five most romantic destinations in the world.
For a mom to admit that she is tired, takes a lot of guts. Going on a guilt-free momcation takes more. Here are 5 ways to plan the perfect momcation without feeling guilty.
A luxury safari often has dreamy sunsets, romantic boma dinners, peaceful game drives and blissful sunrises attached to it. That’s until kids become part of the picture and you need to exchange romantic getaways with well-planned family holidays. We’ve recently gone on our first luxury safari with our kids and this was our experience.
In November, Federal Airlines (FedAir) announced a 50% discount as a South African Residents fare to safari landing strips as part of what they call a revolutionary new approach. I spoke to Julian Edmunds, CCO at FastJet, Zimbabwe and Federal Airlines in Johannesburg about this new approach and what we can expect in the coming months…
If you were looking for a good reason to visit Durban this holiday season, this is it. The ONOMO Hotel Durban’s new Topaz Restaurant & Skybar has opened its doors just in time for the summer holidays and it is the very first of its kind in the city.
Family of mine live on a 6th generation Merino sheep farm outside of Bloemfontein that they also run as a guest farm called De Oude Kraal Country Estate & Spa. On our way back from George a month or so ago, we made time to stay over and reconnect with family we haven’t seen in ages. Family is such an important part of life and I believe it should never be taken for granted.
