Packages - Bush and Country Breaks under 3 hours from Gauteng
We have come to realise over our 9 years of providing Getaways to our local Gauteng residents and visitors passing through Johannesburg,that time is not always on your side!
We have therefore made it our mission to explore our surrounding countryside in order to bring a portfolio of options, that still allow you to feel that you are away from the concrete jungle. Enjoy the pleasure of Bushveld sunsets ...activities that thrill or even inspire us without having to travel for hours on your precious day off!
We are delighted to share our finding with you and invite you to take a break and experience one of our Getaway packages all under a 3 hour drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria.
There is a choice of luxury wildlife destinations and a range of further options of affordable more rustic style camps to chalet or lodge accommodation. The areas we explore are the likes of Welgevonden & Waterberg Area, Bela- Bela, Dinokeng north of Pretoria and the Magaliesberg and Hartbeespoort Dam Surrounds and lastly the well known Game Park - Pilansberg Game Reserve near Sun City.
Explore a collection of Bushveld or countryside retreat`s, where predators or Big 5 Animals aren`t encountered however other appealing attractions for the bush lover are naturally complemented where plains game roam freely and an abundance of birding opportunities arise for the TWEETERS! If that isn`t the type of adventure you are up for, kick off your shoes and read a book, get a pampering session at a spa or pump up the adrenalin with an outdoor adventure excursion such as quad bike trail or even an airborne adventure.
