Spring has come along once more, bringing with it warmer weather and renewed life in the form of budding flowers and thickening greenery all around us. Spoiled for choice in deciding where to go on holiday in South Africa? Here are the best local holiday destinations to visit during spring.
The Cape Winelands
South African wine is often acclaimed as some of the best in the world, couple that with some of the most breathtaking settings on earth during spring and you have yourself a winner. With accommodation that ranges from 5-star resorts to rustic farm cottages, this area offers a lot to explore with striking views from a number of mountain passes and a myriad of hiking trails to match.
One hour’s drive from Durban in KwaZulu-Natal lies a tourist attraction like few other – the world-famous Midlands Meander. Nestled amongst the rolling green hills of inland KZN, the Midlands Meander is an intricate route of local roads that stretch for a total of 80 kilometres. With over 160 different places to stay, shop, eat and be entertained along the Midlands Meander – it certainly is a country-living spring holiday destination the family will enjoy!
Namaqualand daisies and flowers have become a firm favourite for holiday makers with tours taking place every South African spring. These gorgeous Namaqualand daisies provide a blanket of colourful petals and anyone interested in making the most of the warmer weather should certainly take time to explore this beauty. Nature photographers will be in their absolute element with fields of Namaqualand daisies as far as the eye can see as well as the agricultural landscapes and protected nature parks that make the West Coast of South Africa such a joy around August and September.
Zimbali Coastal Estate
If you’re looking for a spring holiday destination that is at the coast, but offers forest walks, golfing, and a plethora of indigenous fauna and flora to admire – consider Zimbali Coastal Estate. As a gated estate, Zimbali is home to conservancy land where humans are permitted to live as one with the non-threatening wildlife. Stunning holiday homes are situated amongst lush flora of all shapes and sizes – a mere stone’s throw from the warm Indian ocean that ebbs along the golden KwaZulu-Natal Dolphin Coast.
