Valley Crag makes exercise interesting

Valley Crag

AIf you are feeling uninspired by your current exercise regime or needing inspiration to get your body into shape, then look no further than the Valley Crag climbing gym in Port Elizabeth.

A PHYSICAL WORKOUT AND A MENTAL CHALLENGE

Climbing gyms have become very popular all around the world and with good reason. Once you start climbing, it becomes really addictive. You are constantly challenging yourself to reach new heights (literally, haha) and to reach these objectives, you need to get fitter, stronger and lighter.

VALLEY CRAG OFFERS EXERCISE AND CAMARADERIE

If having a great summer body is your objective, then climbing is the perfect exercise. The social side of climbing must not be overlooked either, as it is a great way to meet new friends and connect with different people. Many a friendship has been made on the side of a challenging boulder problem. 

Valley Crag caters for both the novice, as well as experienced climber, with 500 square-meters of wall space at different slopes and angles boasting 60 bouldering routes, eight top ropes and 3000 grips. It’s really difficult to get bored there as the staff are constantly changing the routes and keeping the space fresh.

The atmosphere at the Valley Crag is awesome, and owner, Ian Clifford, has ensured that he offers an excellent venue and creative timetable. Monday is a Yoga-Climbing Class, Tuesday is a Bouldering league night, Wednesday is a ‘2-for-1’ Intro Course and Thursday and Friday nights are half-price for students.

They also offer corporate team building packages and even host birthday parties for the young ones. I found the equipment first-class, the experience fantastic and there is a shop for personal gear purchases too. Once you’re done, relax in the coffee shop and encourage the other climbers.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
