Juggling careers and all that life throws at us is enough to leave anyone drained, especially as the festive season draws near. But what better way to get some downtime than with your besties while enjoying a glass of wine over a picture-perfect view? None.
Because no two friendships are the same, we’ve compiled a list of four girls holiday ideas for your next getaway.
The luxury lovers
When fine dining, spa treatments and exclusivity are non-negotiables, a stay at the luxurious Prana Private Lodge in Chinsta in the Eastern Cape ticks all the boxes. Eight private suites are available with uncompromised security, and hour-long massages to ensure total relaxation. With the beach just a stone’s throw away and no children allowed, it’s a sanctuary made for goddesses.
The adventure seekers
There’s nothing like a woman up for a challenge. If it’s thrills and action you’re looking for to let off some steam, take your pick of any adventure-filled holiday from Active-Escapes. From mountain-bike riding in the Drakensberg, a World Heritage Site, to snorkelling in Kosi Bay and Maputaland, there’s something for every taste.
If painting the town red with the ladies is your idea of a great holiday, the Mother City is the ideal destination as Cape Town’s nightlife is on par with the world’s best. Book a stay at the Taj Cape Town in the heart of the city for access to premium restaurants for the foodies and must-try bars for the finest cocktails. With Long Street as a nightlife hub, and Camps Bay just an Uber ride away, it’s the ideal party destination.
Mapungubwe, Limpopo boasts both awe-inspiring sights and activities for the culture enthusiasts. Located on the South African border with Zimbabwe and Botswana, it’s no surprise that its history is as interesting as its landscape is diverse and beautiful. The Tshugulu Lodge offers guest houses that can accommodate up to eight guests, making it ideal for the whole crew.
