Picture this: After an exhilarating safari you retire to your luxury villa, get a fire going in your private boma and fix yourself a nice tall drink. You sink into your private pool and feel your worries get swept away along with the river flowing right in front of you. Nothing but you, your family, the stars above you and the sound of the crackling fire in the background. Doesn’t that sound perfect? Well, it gets better!
Imagine spending a few days like that, going on safaris, watching wildlife roam at the waterholes and recounting sightings around a good ol’ “braaivleis vuur” – and then – after you’ve had enough of an adventure … you take it to the beach! Imagine the exact same luxury that you have now become accustomed to, but this time it is on the beach – at Strand Beach Lodge. Here you spend your days on the golf course which is part of the estate, or on the beach – swimming in some of the warmest waters in the Western Cape, learning to surf, or just lounging about. You take a quick break from the sun, walk 10 meters back into your villa, have a cool-down in the pool and then maybe a warm-up in the jacuzzi. As the sun starts to set, join your loved ones on the balcony for some sundowners and whale spotting. Share stories and photos of your wildlife and beach life adventures while you watch the sun set over False bay. This … is a Bush and Beach Safari.
This is the first in a series of blogs about Strand Beach Lodge and Indlovu River Lodge’s Bush and Beach Safari packages. Look out for the next blog where we will go into detail about what each of these lodges offer and how you can combine them to create the ultimate African luxury experience.
