WHAT TO DO IN MAURITIUS

Mauritius has an impressive array of activities available – from exhilarating zip lining to cultural temple visits. Of course, it’s also very important to factor in plenty of time to soak up the sun around your hotel pool. If you are looking for more than the beach, look at what is in store for you:

  • Deep Sea Fishing – Mauritius is a paradise for deep sea fishing – the ocean is 70 metres deep one kilometre away from the coast. Species include the blue or black marlin, all types of sharks, yellow tuna, the Bonitos, barracuda and more. Huge fish like the Blue Marlin roam the seas and hunt around the island from November to April. Mauritius holds several world fishing records. Fishing boats can be hired from almost all hotels.
  • Spa and Well being – If you’re looking for some pampering be sure to visit the spa found at most hotels where you can put yourself into the capable hands of experts and allow yourself to be carried away by your senses (you deserve it)!
  • Golf – What could be more pleasant than being on holiday on a dream island whilst having the opportunity to improve your golf skills? Some excellent golf courses including Heritage Golf Club at Bel Ombre, Ile Aux Cerfs Golf Club, Tamarina, the Links and Legends courses at Belle Mare Plage and Four Seasons Golf Club at Anahita
  • Shopping – The Island’s reputation as a shopping paradise is enhanced by the diversity and quality of shopping opportunities. From sophisticated shopping centres to small craft shops and bustling market stalls, there is something for everyone. Whatever happens, you can’t leave Mauritius without a sega outfit and at least one frangipani hair clip!
  • Scuba Diving and Snorkeling – Mauritius is fantastic for diving all year round. A barrier reef encircles almost the entire island which creates a shallow lagoon reef, making it particularly good diving for beginners. On the other side of the barrier reef, caverns and crevasses as well as a bunch of ship wrecks will delight the more experienced divers out there.
  • Nightlife – Most hotels in Mauritius offer nightly entertainment but for those seeking a little more, there is lots of fun to be had on the island. The nightlife scene of Mauritius entices with beach clubs, happening nightclubs, casinos, bars & pubs with live music, and even laid back lounges.

Wildehondekloof Private Game Reserve

Luxurious Oudtshoorn accommodation

We still have a few rooms available for the upcoming summer season-

Please contact us for any bookings

4star luxurious accommodation, Wildehondekloof, is a 4,000-hectare private game reserve, located on the outskirts of the famous ostrich-farming town Oudtshoorn in the Western Cape. Here, in the semi-arid, acacia and aloe-peppered Karoo – sandwiched between the Outeniqua Mountains in the east and the Swartberg in the west – a plethora of antelope species thrive; From kudu, to dainty duiker, zebra, nyala, gemsbok, impala, black and blue wildebeest, klipspringer, red hartebeest, eland, a collection of smaller mammals (porcupine, baboon, and mongoose), and thriving birdlife. Soon a few giraffes will call Wildehondekloof home.

The farm is criss-crossed with walking / hiking / mountain biking paths that wind their way through Karoo thickets, gullies, riverbeds, and open Renosterveld, affording visitors an enchanting tour of the various landscapes that compose this desolately beautiful South African region. Leopard and caracal can also be found on the reserve but are so rare, shy, and elusive that it’s perfectly safe for guests to strike out on their own at any time of day. But if it’s leisure you’re after, you can see plenty from the comfort of your own suite, all of which overlook the lodge’s pampered lawns and the rich birdlife and resident herd of Nyala that call it home.

Wildehondekloof lodge and accommodations

Wildehondekloof offers eight luxurious en-suite, air-conditioned bedrooms that spill out onto an expansive veranda with spectacular views of garden, brook, veldt, and mountains. The crowning jewel in Wildehondekloof’s collection is the Private Presidential Suite with its king-sized bed, private lounge, indoor fireplace, and exclusive-use veranda, as well as the best views in the lodge.

Nearby attractions and activities

It would be all too easy to while away several days at Wildehondekloof – hanging out by the pool, reading in bed, and going for walks and game drives. However, for longer stays, guests may want to venture further afield to take in more of the spectacular Karoo and the neighbouring historic, ostrich-farming town of Oudtshoorn.  Enjoy close by activities like ostrich tours, mountain tours, Five shy meerkat tours, Cango Caves, Zip Lining, wine and gin tastings, Cango Wildlife range and much more.

24/7 Rejuvenation

In summer, the place to be is the pool and, at night, the boma – an intimate outdoor arena with large fireplace at its centre and circle of seating – for al fresco dining and star gazing.

Wildehondekloof Private Game Reserve is a place to steep in the silence of the Karoo and to reconnect with nature as it has existed here for hundreds if not thousands of years. Here, the morning is

heralded by a shy sun, which filters through the crisp Karoo air and coaxes the abundant birdlife, including a resident Fish Eagle pair. The day is spent at leisure or engaged in outdoor activities (or both); and the evening is greeted with a gin and tonic on a game drive and the night with a country-style, home-cooked meal washed down with wine from local wineries. 

24/7, Wildehondekloof is manmade luxury in a nature-perfect setting!

7 Tips For Successful Travel

We all travel a lot more now than our ancestors did. We travel all over the world and only think of the jet lag, and not the vast distances we cover. Our world has become smaller and more reachable. And this is a good thing. It helps us to understand different cultures, different people with different ways of living and working. But there are a few essentials you should always check before setting off.

  1. It may seem obvious, but many people don’t bother to find out the most basic things about the country they will travel to. You should do this to avoid surprise or disappointment.
  2. Check on the kind of weather you will find where you are going.
  3. Be sure that the medical and general insurance coverage you have (you do have, don’t you?) is adequate for your destination.
  4. Do you have all the paperwork and documentation required for your trip? If not, get it!
  5. Are there any diseases you will need immunization against where you are going? Check and find out before getting exposed.
  6. If you plan on driving in the place you intend to travel to, check that you have an acceptable licence. You may need an international driving licence, for example. And are you familiar with the local driving laws where you are going? If not, become familiar, fast.
  7. Finally, the most obvious one of all: is your passport up to date? And if not, do you have enough time to renew it before you set off? You’d be surprised, amazed even, at how many people get this one wrong.

Information on the Country Club Phuket

The club’s ‘Old Course’, an 18 hole, par 72 course, is a firm favorite for the high handicappers, offering a challenging but rewarding game and some of the best golf they have ever played. Despite this, the course still manages to offer a comfortable challenge for the more experienced player when teeing off from the Championship tees over a tough but fun 6,484 yards.

The 10th hole offers a particularly exciting challenge, being a par 5 which angles it’s way round a large lake with the chance of a hole in one for those with the skill and accuracy to carry true over the 240 yards of water. Routing it’s way through three scenic landscapes with 6 holes over undulating fairways, 6 holes on the level and 6 holes through shady forest, the layout of the course is as natural and relaxed as the atmosphere and staff.

WHEN CAN I GO?

WELCOME TO BALI

Bali is so picturesque that you could be fooled into thinking it was an artistic masterpiece: rice paddies roll down hillsides, volcanoes soar through the clouds, the forests are lush and tropical, the beaches are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and in the villages you’ll notice the quietness and wisdom in old people’s faces. Over 20,000 temples and palaces, coupled together with colourful festivals, music and dance is testimony to the island’s rich heritage.

Kuta Beach – first discovered in the 60’s, and once a sleepy fishing village – has now transformed into the centre of Bali’s nightlife and action. Legian is where the locals, tourists and expats all mingle. Bargaining, beach activities, indulging in massages, meditating or simply reading – you name it, it’s available! For a holiday where the emphasis is on relaxation, visit Jimbaran or Sanur Beaches; whilst Nusa Dua caters for the more upmarket taste and is ideal for families and water sport enthusiasts. If beaches aren’t your ideal, then visit Ubud, where the culture and lifestyle of the Balinese wait to be discovered.
