Whilst checking around the SA-Venues.com website looking for a special deal for an intended break, I came across these “Extra Special” Special Offers. There are plenty to choose from throughout South Africa but I felt these were worth mentioning to anyone looking for a break right now …

This includes breakfast as well as 2 rounds of golf at R100.  (Minimum stay of 2 nights required to qualify for the special).

Also in KwaZulu Natal, AmaZulu Lodge, an “all African lodge”, completely thatched, offers you the best of The iSimangaliso Wetland Park. Built around a huge, tropical inner garden, AmaZulu Lodge is a top quality retreat in the St Lucia region and if you stay 2 or more nights in July you will get 25% off on accommodation rates. Thats a bargain!
