Now’s your chance to experience the majesty of the northern Drakensberg Mountains

The Cavern is a great find – having hosted families for over 70 years under the watchful gaze of the incomparable Drakensberg mountains. The ‘Berg is one of those destinations that you feel a strange sense of exhilaration when you become aware of the immensity of the towering peaks. The Cavern brings you this package to maximise your stay in the ‘Berg for 3 nights.

Following on the date driven package of Sasuage Tree Safari Camp which is in the Greater Kruger (shares a fenceless border with the Kruger National Park) we have another 2 night package under the hammer for the same dates. An amazing deal was won on 21 June 21, perhaps another will follow on the 28th of June 21.

Daddy Long Legs is back for an affordable and funky midweek stay in Cape Town’s iconic Long Street. Live as a local, enjoy the proximity to the Cable Way, V&A Waterfront as well as the restaurants and bars.

Kingfisher Bush Lodge in Kosi Bay is proving to be immensely popular. It is remote but the roads to get there are brilliant, it has luxury tents and its close to the iconic fishing traps at the Kosi Bay estuary. An amazing destination or even stop-over en-route to Mozambique. Great value, great wildlife, pristine beaches and an adventure of note.

Cuckoo Ridge just outside of Hazyview is in a beautiful setting that lends itself to tranquility. This sedate lodge is alongside the Sabie River and provides an awesome base to explore and appreciate the natural beauty of the Panorama Route while being able to visit the Kruger National Park, a manageable drive away.

The classy J-Bay Zebra Lodge is a mere 23 minutes drive from Jeffrey’s Bay and this lodge epitomizes what the Eastern Cape has to offer: Safari and Bush. However, the French flair of the owners shines through in their hospitality offering where elegance is the order of the day. Combine safari, views, tranquility and the beach with this terrific travel auction. This travel auction includes a beach horse ride as well as self guided game drives.
