Last minute getaway

If you’re looking for a quick, last minute getaway this month … head to Knysna and take advantage of this special offer

Whether you’re celebrating Women’s Month, or just need a getaway from the stress of the city, a great option is the Garden Route … and Knysna in particular, which is beautiful and magical all year round. It is also home to one of South Africa’s most unusual hotels.

Revamped from an historical wood-burning power station, the 5-star Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa is small and intimate, with 26 rooms and suites. This quirky hotel-of-note is the perfect place to spend a night or two.
