Skipping off on a spontaneous last minute getaway is not only a lot of fun, but can also be a huge money-saver. Eleventh-hour take-offs aren’t necessarily the best way to approach a major holiday, but they can work well for short breath-catchers and a change of scene – especially during off-peak season. So take off on a whim to somewhere special, and get one of these last minute discounts:


Shibula Lodge and Spa – a five-star riverside safari lodge in the Welgevonden Reserve, Limpopo – is offering a last minute rate of R1485 per person per night sharing in a luxury room if you book within 21 days of travel. This covers all meals and safari activities. The offer holds good until 31 October 2012. (Better stil, stay for 3 nights minimum and pay just R1125 per person per night sharing.)


Book your Big Five safari at Mkuze Falls within 14 days of travel, and get a last minute rate of R1530 per person per night sharing at Mkuze Tented Camp, inclusive of meals and safaris. If you prefer a large chalet with glorious views up at Mkuze Main Lodge, pay R1765 per person per night sharing, with meals and safaris. Valid for travel until 31 July 2012.

Get a full 50% off at White Elephant Lodge when you book within 7 days of travel! R1145 per person per night sharing gets you five-star tented accommodation, 3 meals daily, teas, coffees and snacks, and 2 eco-activities per day. You need to book a minimum two-night stay to qualify for this half-price last minute special. The deal is on offer until 31 August 2012.
