There is something magical about South Africa’s farm life culture.
Not only is agriculture one of the biggest contributors to SA’s economy, but farms are at the heart of the country for many reasons - from our dependence on Mother Nature and showing appreciation for the production of quality food, to knowing where your food comes from.
There are countless opportunities for meaningful connection with farms - especially on the many working farms that offer family-orientated escapes where you can not only gain some perspective on life, but also gain some insight on how they operate too.
Obviously, food is central to the experience - so why not discover a melting pot of pan African and ethnic European & Asian flavours in this exciting four-day tented camp with Chef Suzi Holtzhausen as she reinvents open-fire cooking on the Wicked Food Earth farm just outside Jozi – click her for more details.
Driving from Cape Town to the Breede River Valley is quite a scenic meander as you pass through the Huguenot Tunnel and find yourself getting lost in wine farms around Rawsonville. Known for its agriculture and pleasant weather (with possibilities of snow in winter) the area popular for its wine route and extreme sports events, even has a touch of Italian to make for the perfect farm escape - read more about it here.
Otherwise, let the farm animals and chilled-out activities out at Tides River Lodge work their relaxation charm. Read the full review here.
Or indulge in fine wines and delicious food, while enjoying a host of entertainment, outdoor activities and nature at these end-of-summer winelands harvest festivals.
There’s a long, long weekend coming at the end of April – make sure you make the most of it - one of these quirky SA stays should do the trick.
