Covid-19 and lock downs have brought about many changes to be sure! After months of being cooped up at home many South African are wanting to experience something different – a change from working from home, a change of environment and a holiday closer to home. If you are in search of accommodation for a getaway where you can comply with all the Covid protocols – isolating, social distancing and avoiding crowds and still have a great time then go the self-catering route.
Choosing self-catering accommodation, be it a luxury seaside apartment, house or villa in Knysna and Plett, a unit in a historical town, a budget-wise cottage in a nature reserve or a luxury game lodge out in the bush means that you can avoid confined, enclosed spaces, close-contact settings and crowded places – you can eat, sleep and relax in your own ‘bubble’ – all the while enjoying the fresh air, the peace and quiet, soaking up the sun surrounded by the stunning beauty of the mountains, hills, rivers and the sea.
One of the top tier South African hotels in South African offering self-catering accommodation in addition to their hotel rooms is in Mpumalanga – the land of the rising sun. In the rolling hills of the Mpumalanga highlands just beyond the picturesque hamlet of Dullstroom, the exclusive 5-star Walkersons Hotel & Spa offers beautiful views, unspoiled scenery, well stocked trout dams and a serenity that is hard to beat. Along with two restaurants, a spa and 27 private hotel rooms, Walkersons also offers five fully furnished, self-catering cottages.
The Waterfall House with five en suite bedrooms, a spacious entertainment area, fully equipped kitchen, pool table, fireplace and a bar is situated on top of a hill overlooking a waterfall; Riverview Cottage, a double storey with four en-suite bedrooms, with spectacular panoramic views from an upstairs balcony and braai area overlooking the river. Other units include the three-bedroomed Hillside Cottage and the picturesque two-bedroomed Hansel and Gretel Cottages.
