AA LITTLE CHOCOLATE BEFORE A MEAL
If cocoa is the drink of the Gods, then chocolate is their staple diet. With Celestial Gift Experiences, their chocolate tasting journey in Muldersdrift is guaranteed to get you in touch with the divine. Learn about the art of chocolate-making as connoisseurs talk about the etiquette for tasting chocolate, how to differentiate between decadent and delightful tastes of chocolate and the origin of cocoa, some of which are right here in Africa.
You will then be given the opportunity of selecting your own “Spoil Me” box of chocolate truffles to enjoy at home.
The chocolate serves as the perfect appetizer for the pasta that follows. After your chocolatey educational we suggest you linger longer and hang out at this hidden gem outside Johannesburg. Be whisked off to Casalinga Restaurant for assorted homemade pastas, garden fresh salads and a selection of home-baked bread. Child-friendly with plenty of space, we suggest you book and enjoy a long happy lunch!

LLUXURY CAMPS ARE THE IN-THING
There is no better moment at camp than unzipping your tent and taking in the sunrise with a cup of coffee in hand. If you and your friend are yearning for a bit of a rustic setting, Senate Bush Camp in Mpumalanga offers the perfect getaway. Located in Manyeleti Game Reserve, the camp features luxury tented and chalet accommodation at a Big Five reserve which borders with Kruger National Park. Embark on a morning or evening game drive in the Kruger and if you are lucky, you may spot a predator on the hunt.
End the day off with a braai under the stars or lounging in front of the communal fireplace. You can even check out the Blyde River Canyon and Three Rondavels, both of which are just a two-hour drive away.

CCRUISE DOWN THE VAAL RIVER
Cruising down the Vaal River with excellent company is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Spend two hours drifting on the Vaal savouring a three-course buffet with home-style meals and sipping on a chilled glass of wine. After the meal, relax on the top deck on sun loungers or in a Jacuzzi, and soak up the bird’s eye view of the magnificent Gentlemen Estates on the River.
