It could be yoga in a pristine reserve that takes your fancy, or hot-footing it through the fynbos with the kids to find Easter eggs, or a weekend learning the secrets of Italy’s well-known passion-foods. These, and all sorts of other things besides, are coming up in De Hoop Collection’s special packages for 2013.
