LEVEL 2 TRAVEL SUGGESTIONS

  • Camp in our National Parks – the Augrabies Falls National Park in the Northern Cape is a truly off the beaten path gem. Don’t miss the Kokerboom Food and Wine Route.
  • In the Eastern Cape, journey to the magical mountain hamlet of Hogsback – boasting forests and waterfalls that are often dusted with snow at this time of year. 
  • Explore the Golden Gate National Park, easily combinable with a visit to cosy Clarens. 
  • Check into the idyllic bush. The Kruger remains a favourite, especially in winter, for good reason.

TRAVEL TIPS FROM THE EXPERTS

  1. Book travel insurance – yes, even on a local trip.
  2. Plan ahead. Pre-book accommodation and plan a rough itinerary (at least where you’re sleeping each night).
  3. Check what facilities and parks are open. Some may be slowly starting to open in phases, so call ahead to check and confirm opening times to avoid disappointment.
  4. Check government regulations before travelling as these are subject to change. 
  5. Consider booking with a travel agent. They will be able to advise on other restrictions and protocols relating to your travels and be there to assist you should things change.
