The sun is out, and it’s an excellent weekend to take a break and treat yourself. If you think it’s too late to plan, think again – we’ve got your back. To escape for bit in the Gauteng area, consider a weekend in the small, picturesque village of Magaliesberg. While you’re there, you should:
Stay at the Mount Grace Hotel
It has style, comfort and great service, all in one beautiful hotel. Have a massage at its award-winning spa and then continue to chill at high tea.
Eat at the Moulin Rouge
This antique store and bistro serves hearty homemade food, and a selection of great wines to go with it. It makes homemade ginger beer and homemade lemonade too!
Play in Goblin’s Cove
Adults and children alike will love this fantasy world that’s reminiscent of the world in the Lord of the Rings. Also visit the nearby elephant sanctuary and make sure to book a hot-air balloon safari.
PS If you take two days off next week (Monday and Tuesday), and add that to Wednesday’s public holiday, you’ve put together a nice amount of down time, and given yourself a two day work week to return to! Enjoy.
