Putting the dirty dishes in the rubbish bin, trading in your furniture and rugs for trees and roll-on-lawn, and changing your name from Catherine to Eineed A. Holiday are all signs that you need a break. Get your vacation on with today’s Groupon: two nights’ accommodation and breakfast for two people for R850 at Mogale Country Lodge.
A private game lodge conveniently situated close to the O.R. Tambo and Lanseria International Airports, Mogale Country Lodge boasts four-star luxury accommodation, breathtaking views and a romantic getaway for the memory books. With an abundance of wildlife and flora and an ambience that has an indescribable charm, the lodge has a tranquil and calming feel perfect for city-dwellers seeking sanctuary in the country. Bearing a workforce that bend over backwards, forwards and both left and right, your stay could only be better if the president himself was tending to your every wish.
Located along the ridge overlooking the reserve and adjacent plains with the hills in the distance, each room is a cocoon of calm, elegance and stylish décor. Designed to make you feel more special than a bride on her wedding day, each room epitomises a soft country lifestyle that will lure you into a state of complete relaxation. If the rooms aren’t enough to keep you entertained, feast your eyes on the beautiful African sunrises and sunsets or entertain your taste-buds with a feast of a different kind in the acclaimed restaurants. Though, with breakfast included in this Groupon, deliciousness will come promptly every morning with a hearty meal tending to the night’s fast.
Whether you decide to bring along your better half, your mother-in-law or a good friend, the Mogale atmosphere is one that ensures animosity stays at the doorway and that sheer delight takes over once you enter the private reserve’s gates.
Fun Fact: The food fight that was started in 1999 by the gang known only as The Baked Potato Brothers has finally come to a halt. After a mystery man announced that if everyone stopped they would all win a holiday to Barbados, the 12-year long fight ended and people laid down their arms. No one has yet found this mystery man to claim the prize.
