Cosy destinations to escape the winter

When it comes to winter, there are two types of people. People who prefer a good bottle of wine, a warm, fuzzy blanket and watching their favourite series while snuggling up on the sofa. On the other hand, there are those who start browsing through online flight specials looking for a warmer destination to escape to. After all, vacations should not only be preserved for summer! There are just too many places to visit and sightsee in South Africa that are actually better experienced during winter, or provide sunny warm weather  relief from the dip in temperatures. If you’ve been thinking of taking a trip away from your town then look no further. Here are some cosy destinations you can travel to this winter:
  • Magaliesberg in Gauteng
    Although Gauteng is not exactly a province that is warm during winter, it’s perfect as a cosy destination. Magaliesberg is a go-to destination for an adventurous family who enjoy hiking and a family who seeks to bond over a deliciously warm cup of cocoa. This destination is also ideal for a couple who are looking for a romantic getaway away from the city. Whether you’re already in Gauteng or travelling from PE, browsing the net for flights from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg for a quick getaway should definitely be on your to-do list.
  • East London
    Because life’s a beach, you don’t have to avoid it altogether – even when the temperatures drop. Yes, beaches are usually cold and windy… but not Nahoon beach. If you’re keen on swimming in the warm Indian Ocean and cold Atlantic Ocean in Cape Town seems to be chasing you away, ensure you and your friends have your flights from East London to Cape Town booked.
  • Midlands
    After you and your loved ones have taken the cheapest flights to Durban, take a drive through the Midlands meander which boasts amazing scenery and various stores that will pique your interest. Areas such as the Drakensberg Mountains and other mountainous areas are regarded as warmer locations when compared to other parts of KZN. So as you’re gallivanting through Durbz, be sure to travel to the northern and southern areas.
  • Cape Town.
    Cape Town is a great spa destination where hot springs are readily available for you to escape the chilly weather. If de-stressing, relaxing and having perfectly glowing skin is exactly what you’re aiming for this winter, then search for available Cape Town flights and visit spas such as Warmwaterberg, Goudini and Montagu Springs Resort. .
Winter does not have to be miserable for you and your loved ones. South Africa has amazing destinations you can travel to that are calling your name!
