Add some sunshine to your winter by jetting off to one of these much loved winter sun destinations. Choose from an active water sports holiday, an exotic tour of a far off place or just kicking back and relaxing while topping up on some much needed vitamin D.
High on the winter sun hit list are diving at some of the world’s top dive sites in Egypt or Thailand, or soaking up the sights in Mexico, Argentina or Brazil. Go on safari in Tanzania or South Africa, or just chill in a Caribbean paradise in St Lucia or Barbados. If you don’t mind a long haul flight, join the thousands exploring the beaches, vistas and warm welcomes of Australia and New Zealand.
For something a little closer to home, the Canary Islands are bathed in sunshine all year round, making your winter sun break just a short flight away.

Thank you so much for a lovely review. I am so glad that you found everything to your satisfaction. I have taken note of your comment about the kitchen knives and will make sure that they are sharp when next you visit. Just one small thing, the cost of upgrading to the premium package is R400,00 which is the difference between the small package and the premium package. I do hope we see you again when you next visit our city. Once again, thank you for the kind words. Cecile
