Road Trippin’…

Maybe it’s just us, but just the thought of being ‘locked down’ tends to make us want to get going! Whether you’re looking for a (safe) getaway right now, or are planning ahead for a road trip in a few months’ time, here are a couple of our favourite not-too-far-from-home road trip destinations …

DLINZA FOREST AERIAL BOARDWALK

Just an hour from Ballito (so perfect for a day trip), the Dlinza Forest Aerial Boardwalk offers a magical experience. The 125m boardwalk is 10m high and ends in a 20m observation platform with spectacular views overlooking the 250-hectare indigenous forest. There are two marked hiking trails to enjoy the abundant bird life and fascinating fungi. Pack a picnic or grab a snack from the kiosk and enjoy secluded picnic/braai spots near safe and secure parking. Details: Nola Ladwig: 035 474 4029, www.visitzululand.co.za FB: @dlinzaboardwalk

THE CAVERN DRAKENSBERG RESORT & SPA

The Cavern is set in a secluded valley of the Northern Drakensberg. It is a site of conservation significance and there are guided morning hikes and horse rides on offer daily. A swimming pool, MTB trails and dams for fishing extend the offerings for outdoor adventure while the Forest Retreat Spa is a tranquil escape for complete relaxation. Standard or superior rooms are set in indigenous, landscaped gardens where you can relax in the exquisite mountain wilderness. Details: www.cavern.co.za 036 438 6270 FB: @cavern.drakensberg
