Best places for a workation in South Africa

The era of cubicles and water-cooler chitchat feels like a world away. With most of the world working remotely, there's no better time to go on a workation than now! If you enjoy the work you do and love vacations, a workation is exactly what you might need. A workation blends leisure activities (think adventure and new experiences) with work away from home. Get ready to plan your workation adventure and have the most fulfilling travel experience yet through these destinations in South Africa.

Cape Town

Cape Town is a gorgeous destination with plenty of outdoor attractions for workationers to explore. Those who want incredible mountain views can visit destinations like Maclear's Beacon, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Cape Point, and Table Mountain National Park. Coworking spaces in Cape Town are largely located in neighborhoods like De Waterkant and Gardens. Throughout the city, internet connections are widely available and the cost of living here is much more affordable than many other cities around the world, so workations can continue almost indefinitely even on a budget.

Madikwe Game Reserve

Discover the full range of South African safari experiences at Madikwe Game Reserve, in the North West Province, close to the border of Botswana. A diverse combination of bushveld and the semi-arid Kalahari, this 76,000-hectare Reserve boasts the Super Seven – adding cheetah and the endangered African wild dog to the already famous Big Five. The possibility is that you would rather want to take in Madikwe’s panoramic views instead of hearing your message notifications come in, but this luxury safari lodge offers guests excellent complimentary WI-FI throughout the lodge, laptop loans and business facilities for those who like to travel light.

Sabi Sands, Kruger National Park

There’s no need to put off spending time in the bush. You can have it all – rest in a sanctuary for both humans and wildlife, and work at the same time while enjoying five-star accommodation and fine dining opportunities. The Wi-Fi signal is strong in the one place you wish you could switch off.

Let your travels take you where the signal is strong, but don’t forget to take the time to stop, switch off, submerge yourself in the amazing surroundings and let the magic of South Africa wash over you.
