ITCHING for a summer VACAY?
Do you dream of the sound of gentle waves washing onto a sandy beach? Can't stop imagining dreamy spots to sip a cocktail? Or maybe its the sound of the African bush calling?
Destination AFRICA has all of this in SPADES. We share a few innovative ideas to make your dreams a reality.
If there's one thing we've learnt from Covid-19, its that we need to think differently. The world has become a very different place and navigating it is going to take some 'out of the box' ideas for new ways of doing business...and leisure.
You'd be forgiven for thinking we made it up, but 'Worcation' is an actual term describing trips that combine work and vacation. Covid-19 has meant that many companies have had to embrace 'working from home' and its become a workable reality.
So why not make Africa your home for a month... or two... or more?
We have a number of fabulous self catering (or B&B or even fully catered) long stay accommodation options and can help you to put together the perfect 'Worcation'.
Africamps at Pat Busch, Robertson, Western Cape
Africamps at Stanford Hills Estate, Stanford, Western Cape
Little Switzerland, Northern Drakensberg, Kwazulu Natal
Africamps at Mackers, Hazyview, Mpumalanga
Komati River Chalets, Southern Kruger, Mpumalanga
Fugitives Drift Lodge and Guest House, Drakensberg, Kwazulu Natal
Perhaps the idea of a working holiday just doesn't do it for you! That's okay too. Pretend you're from here and 'Live Like a Local'.
Our options for accommodation choices are extensive and we'll put you in touch with 'all things local' to spice up your days.
