The beauty of bush breaks lie in their simplicity. Not only are they a hassle-free way to enjoy an escape from the city and bask in nature’s splendour, but they also enable you to explore some of the most beautiful places in the country no matter what your budget. An ideal trip for couples, families and the solo traveller alike, a bush break is a great way to disconnect from the clamour of the world and reconnect with the people around you that matter most.
One of the best features of a bush break is the ability to tailor it to fit your budget. Big or small, extravagant or humble, there’s an endless array of places to travel that will suit your spend without sacrificing experience. Take the Tsendze Rustic Camp for instance. Nestled amongst the rugged landscapes of the famous Kruger National Park, travellers here can set up camp while prides of lion and dazzles of zebra roam just outside. Catch the animals waking up on an early morning drive, read a book in the afternoon sun or snuggle up under the stars beside a glowing campfire. With affordable nightly rates, bush camps are an easy, down to earth getaway.
For those wanting to the ultimate in luxury, pamper yourself at a 5-star safari lodge. From the exclusive Tswalu Lodge in the Kalahari to Sabi Sands Private Reserve, travellers can get up close and personal with all of nature’s majestic creatures while enjoying incredible amenities. Lounge amongst elegantly designed spaces intertwined with beautiful landscapes, dine on gourmet culinary creations prepared by top chefs or relax and rejuvenate with a soothing spa treatment. Offering the finest in accommodation and amenities, a safari lodge can turn a simple bush break into a once in a lifetime getaway.
Whether you choose to keep it low-key or go ultra-posh, the incredible experience of being immersed in the sights, smells and sounds of the bush make it the perfect kind of holiday for all occasions. Getaway as a family on a camping adventure and watch herds of buffalo roam over grassy plains, take your loved one on a romantic 5-star luxury weekend and search out the elusive leopard or explore South Africa’s beauty on a solo trip and mingle with travellers from all over the world. No matter who you choose to travel with, a bush break offers quality time to reconnect with loved ones, get back to nature and create memorable moments to last a lifetime.
