HOLIDAY RESORTS IN SOUTH AFRICA

In seeking out the best holiday resorts in South Africa, a common thread emerges. These destinations cater to the every man … which means swimming pools, activities for the whole family, games rooms, playgrounds, and a restaurant or two on site are the universal features. They’re the kind of holiday resorts that give you that salty, sandy, suntan lotion scented feeling of being on leave. Like a warm fuzziness, mixed with some nostalgia (some of these resorts have been around since before I was born!), these are the kind of places where the biggest decision of the day is whether to base yourself around the pool, in the dam or at the beach.
