The great thing about a singles holiday is it’s all about you! Whatever you’re into, wherever you want to go, it’s your way or the highway. Need some inspiration for a short break away in SA? Take a look at these great ideas to get your travel plans on the road.


It’s no surprise Cape Town is at the top of the list when it comes to awesome escapes for singles. The vibey club scene, cool coffee culture and gorgeous beaches are the perfect playground for meeting friendly locals and fellow travellers in search of fun and adventure. Spoil yourself to a stay at the swanky Radisson Blu Le Vendome, just moments from the vibey Promenade and V&A Waterfront. Stay in the centre of the city at Inn on The Square close to all the clubs and pubs of lively Long Street. Get ready to see and be seen on one of the city’s most sought-after beaches just 3 minutes’ walk from stylish Camps Bay Resort. Keen to hang ten? Surfers can catch a wave at Simon's Town Quayside Hotel overlooking scenic False Bay. Whatever you’re into, Cape Town has you sorted!


If you’re into sunny weather, swimsuits and unlimited fun, Durban hits the sweet spot! With endless stretches of golden sand, warm water and plenty of outdoor entertainment, it’s the perfect hangout for chilled solo travellers to find their bliss. Relax on the oceanfront at Pavilion Hotel. Then stroll over to the super cool Moses Mabhida Stadium for a spin on the SkyCar, Segway tours, the Big Rush Swing and more! Kick back at the Urban Park Hotel & Spa in comfy self-catering accommodation. Or go rustic in the beautiful Midlands at Fordoun Hotel & Spa nestled in the green pastures of a working farm. For something really swanky, head to the Oyster Box Hotel on Umhlanga’s prestigious beachfront.


Keen to leave the city behind and get away from it all? Head along the gorgeous Garden Route for the road trip of a lifetime. Pass quaint coffee shops and tucked-away art galleries. Discover sparkling lakes and lagoons hidden amidst lush coastal forests. First stop: Fancourt Hotel – a blissful estate surrounded by mountains, indigenous forests and the warm Indian Ocean. Go mountain biking, hiking, swimming and horse riding. Then explore the city of George with a trip to Robertson Brewing Co., the Outeniqua Farmers' Market and more. Not to be outdone, The Rex Hotel in Knysna is well worth a visit too. Think whale watching, tours through Mitchell’s Brewery, relaxing days at Robberg Nature Reserve and day trips to vibey Plettenberg Bay. It’s all up to you!


Can you hear that? It’s the call of the wild! Explore South Africa’s incredible bushveld at one of the country’s many incredible game reserves. Soak up the scenery at Casa Do Sol Hotel & Spa Resort located in the beautiful Sabi River just moments from Kruger National Park. Or get up close and personal to nature at Imbali Safari Lodge, located within Kruger itself. Think scenic decks and thrilling game drives. For something a little different, head to Hamilton’s Tented Camp, a colonial-style experience for those in search of a luxurious solo break.
