Hidden away on over
thirty acres of indigenous and exotic botanical gardens, the Makaranga Garden
Lodge is one of those places that you dream of when you need to get away from
the hustle and bustle of city life. Surrounded by ponds, streams and waterfalls,
the lodge is a throw-back to tranquil holidays before they covered everything
in chrome and automated it. With the birds singing you soundly to sleep and the
streams bubbling around you, the calming ambience will hit you with the force
of an expertly-trained archer’s arrow.
Apart from having a view enough to make Amazonian squirrel-monkeys hop on the next flight to Durban, the lodge is also a master in the art of expertly meshing together beds and breakfasts. With the view having satisfied your eyes, the large and comfortable bed having satisfied your body and the scrumptious breakfast presented to satisfy your tummy, you’ll have come full circle on the pleasing experience. The only thing you’ll probably miss is that salsa date with your partner and his or her perfectly pronounceable name. Today’s Groupon also gives you the chance to extend the magic of roughing it without the rough and staying for two nights instead of just one.
Sandy Fact: An ancient scroll found buried under a large boulder in the Nevada desert makes mention of a place called সৈকত হোটেল which, in English translates to ‘The Great Basin Beach Hotel’. This has led some scholars to believe that there was once an ocean nearby.
