The land of many attractions is certainly an applicable phrase, from the beautiful beaches seen on Instagram, to the wildlife migrations in the Masai Mara to Big 5 Safari’s and beautiful scenery set to take...

We recently spent a night at the beautiful four star Southern Sun Montecasino hotel, and were blown away by the beauty of this Tsogo Sun Property.

Of course the hotels services and amenities are anything but old world and bullet speed...

Our travels have of course led us to the beautiful De Hoek Country Hotel located cosily amongst the Magaliesberg Mountains and only an hour and fifteen minutes away from Johannesburg.
