Easter is a-coming and it’s the perfect time for families and groups of friends to get away. Whether it’s the bush or the beach that blows your hair back, plan a short break over Easter to have some fun and recharge.

Easter Safaris

Treat yourself to a some tranquil downtime in the wilderness over Easter, at a safari lodge within comfortable driving distance. One very good bush escape ex Johannesburg is Ivory Tree Game Lodge in the Pilanesberg National Park. Take the whole family to this beautiful and geologically intriguing area and enjoy daily game drives in a malaria-free region. There’s a spa and swimming pool for the hours in between bush drives.

The Entabeni Lodges in the Waterberg are also just a couple of hours away from Johannesburg and offer a great safari for families. If you’re a golfer, Entabeni has the very best to offer.

Another excellent Easter safari option is Shibula Lodge and Spa in the Welgevonden Reserve, which is 2 and a half – 3 hours away from Joburg. Shibula’s luxurious suites have a scenic riverside setting with rugged cliff views.

Nature Breaks

For Joburg families wanting a rustic nature break, head for Misty Hills Country Hotel in Muldersdrift – right in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind.

Capetonians could hit the road to Bushmans Kloof in the Cederberg, where the most fantastic activities are in store for you, including incredible scenic walks to ancient rock paintings and daily nature drives. Koro Lodge offers an exclusive hideout for families.

Beach Pads

Self-catering getaways are great family options for Easter. Book a large sea-facing apartment at Diaz 15 in sun-splashed Jeffrey’s Bay, and do your own thing right on the beachfront in surfers’ mecca. Watersports and beach fun are in spitting distance from your doorstep, and there’s also a rim-flow pool overlooking the ocean. These apartments have large kitchens, patios and balconies with barbeque facilities.  Every morning there’s a real spoil when someone comes to prepare a slap-up breakfast for you in your apartment.

In Cape Town – in the exclusive seaside residentrial suburb of Llandudno – there’s a top-luxury, butler-serviced self-catering option at the 26 Sunset Avenue Llandudno. This gorgeous and very opulent sole-use villa basks on the slopes of the Atlantic Seaboard beside the Sandy Bay Nature Reserve. Kick back to a luxurious Easter break with 180-degree views of crashing waves. Every day is a celebration with a champagne breakfast and meals prepared to order by a personal chef.
