Like those of Pac Man and his wife, the average human life consists of a maze of daily stresses, that if not escaped could result in blob-like evils cornering you into a tension-filled doom. Escape the stress and embark on an adventure of the complete opposite with today’s Groupon: 3 nights’ accommodation and 2-hour horse ride for 6 people for R4320 at Alpine Heath Resort.
Comfortably snug in the Northern Drakensburg, the picturesque setting of the Alpine Heath Resort would make Heidi and the Von Trapp family jealous. Surrounded by crystal clear streams and fresh mountain air, the four star Afro-Swiss designed mountain lodge may just make you want to inhale a large amount of Oxygen and exhale into song and choreographed dance.
Though, if you, like most people, feel that singing to a choreographed dance routine should be reserved for a Bollywood movie, you’ll probably emit a gleeful cry when you discover the wealth of nature-embracing activities Alpine Heath and the surrounds have to offer. Embark on a two-hour horse riding adventure with five friends or family and come face to face, with the beautiful Nooitgedacht horses. Apart from reacquainting yourself with these majestic creatures, the resort is also in close proximity to other activities like zip-line slides and hiking trips, and if you decide to bring little people along they can engage in child-friendly activities in the Kids WOW Zone.
With the kids happily cocooned in activities, you’ll have time to indulge in some couple-time in lavish restaurants at the Village Square. Of course, if all you wanted was the lazy getaway, you’re more than welcome to lap up the heat and lay yourselves out in front of the fire, sprawled like African straw mats.
Whether you decide to round up a group of friends, or forge your children’s exam results in search of a reason for a family vacation, the country-style resort is perfect for anyone seeking a green getaway from Inky, Pinky, Blinky and Clyde, as well as an escape from the concrete jungle.
Travel Fact: In Switzerland, it is unheard of to go without wearing a pair of sunglasses indoors. Because it is incredibly cold outside, incredibly bright light bulbs are used indoors, to radiate heat as well as to light up the interior.
