(Still kind of under construction)
Here are my top sites for booking accommodation in SA. (and when to use each one)
SA venue – This site is probably the most found one when searching for weekend getaways or last minute accommodation. I do however find that there are loads who don’t list on their site.
Safari now – Safari is an older, established site. (Many little vineyard and country cottages use them as a booking system) They are very easy to deal with when you need to contact them. Great customer service.
Bookings.com – I use this site for work travel. It has such a wide variety from hotels to BnB’s. What I like most about it is the way you can refine your search. Need wifi and breakfast buffet? Easy find on Bookings.com.
Air BnB – GREAT for strange getaways. You can rent a little flat in the city for a night or two or a villa in Spain if you please.
Lekker slaap – Lekker Slaap has the most incredible local little places on it. I use this site when looking for places that sleep a few people. Friends getaway vs just Os and I. it feels as if many of the coolest little places are hiding away on this site.
Groupon – Hey look, Groupon is what Forest Gump would call a box of chocolates. You never know when you are going to get a coffee liquor dark chocolate or that kak one with the moerse nut inside it.
Daddy’s deals – Total hit or miss. Sometimes they have amazing deals and sometimes they are R5.00 off if you sleep 6 people and stay 8 nights.
5 Reasons why I choose MANGO AIRLINES.
How about a STEAM TRAIN RIDE?
Perhaps a visit to a VINEYARD?
Pack up your things and go CAMPING. I know a great spot.
Looking for a fun night out in Joburg? Why not a REAL LIFE PROBLEM-SOLVING GAME.
Go get some fresh air and visit a BOTANICAL GARDEN.
Perhaps a nice DRIVE in the Klein Karoo?
I have a little list of 5 PLACES (in SA) that I would very much like to see.
Going to the BEACH?
Going on a ROAD TRIP? (BONUS, some great road trip songs)
Gotta print that CHECK LIST.
Watch a MOVIE to make you want to pack your bags.
