It’s that time of year again…time for egg hunts, hot-cross buns, other sugary overloads, quality time spent with family & friends, also a time to truly unwind. What better place to do that, and so much more, than in the Garden Route, South Africa’s natural playground.
So pack your bags, kids, dogs and sunblock and head down for a festive holiday at the sea!
