Sensational Sun Safari

Family is important. There is no two ways about it. In our fast paced lifestyles we often do not get to spend as much time with our loved ones as we’d like to. A safari holiday is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the family to reconnect, bond and create new memories together that will be cherished for years to come. Safaris are suitable for young and old. Game lodges have activities and facilities available that will keep everyone entertained. The Sensational Sun Safari is the perfect safari package for the whole family to enjoy. It is especially fun for the younger children as they get to visit the penguin colony on Boulders Beach in Cape Town before the whole family is transported to Madikwe Game Reserve, home to the big five. After a few days spent learning about nature, the family safari adventure moves on to the Sun City resort where young and old will have endless hours of fun.


The Great Bush Retreat

Spending alone time with your significant other is an important part of any relationship. It is an opportunity to reconnect and share new experiences. The Great Bush Retreat offers three days of luxury accommodation at the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve just two hours outside of Cape Town. Nestled between the mountain and the sea, the facility offers a myriad of activities from walking on the beach to discovering ancient caves.
