Weekend getaways and specials on accommodation for those wanting breaks and to get away for the weekend are available and popular for those who need to get out of busy towns and cities around SA. It can be such a stress reliever just to get away for a few days and spend some time relaxing or participating in some kind of hobby or sport you enjoy. Many people these days take their families out and about for day trips in Cape Town and other places where great times and fun can be had by experiencing such things as Safari Tours, Helicoptor Rides or spending time with the kids at the Cape Town Aquarium.
Popular destinations for many weekend getaways include getting away from it all and into the country where people can spend time either relaxing in the tranquil peace and quiet of the countryside or experience adventure sports such as river rafting or canoeing on the many rivers throughout South Africa. Romantic destinations are usually situated on picturesque properties out in nature and can do wonders in relieving stress for any overworked person.
Hermanus is another good example of a popular place that many go and spend time relaxing at and a particularly good time to visit this coastal town is during the whale watching season when great southern right whales visit SA coastlines to calf. Other ideas of what can be done in one or two days include a boat trip to Robben Island, go shark cage diving, visit some of the Cape’s world renown wine farms or take a trip up Table Mountain in the cable car. Wherever you are and what ever you enjoy doing in and around South Africa there are many places to spend weekend getaways and day trips.
