Self- catering is all about doing things at your own pace and on a budget that suits you. South Africa has a selection of some of the finest, world class self-catering hotels and lodges spread across all provinces.

You can choose from a variety of accommodation in sought after destinations, such as Cape Town and surrounds, the Drakensburg, the West Coast and of course the Kruger National Park, to name a few.

Take for example Camps Bay Village, with the 12 Apostles as the backdrop and some of the finest beaches the Cape has to offer within easy reach, Camps Bay Village is the ideal location for that dream holiday.

If the lowveld is your idea of a great getaway, there are a multitude of options, one of which is Sefapane Lodges and Safaris. Only a stone’s throw from the Phalaborwa entrance into the Kruger National Park, it is suitable for those who are travelling for work or play. Or you can opt for Elephant Walk Retreat, situated on the banks of the Crocodile River, just around the corner from the Crocodile Bridge Gate entrance into the Kruger National Park, offering unrivalled views of the Kruger National Park and the magnificent Crocodile River. For a change in scenery visit Tomjachu Bush Retreat, set amongst the rolling mountains of the Lowveld in the heart of Mpumalanga and situated within its own private nature reserve.

The Drakensberg must be one of the most dramatic landscapes in South Africa and Alpine Heath has stunning views of “The Berg” as it is affectionately known. The hotel is ideally situated midway between Durban and Johannesburg.

The Elephant Coast is characterised by untouched wetlands teeming with birdlife, big five bush breakaways and beautiful beaches. It is here that you will find Anew Lodge between the big five Hluhluwe Game Reserve and the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park.

One of the most underrated destinations in South Africa is the West Coast. Abalone Pool Villas are situated in the heart of the historic West Coast fishing village of Paternoster. Activities range from art galleries to horse riding on the beach.  

If you are pushed for time then Buffalo Thorn Lodge in the heart of Black Rhino Game Reserve, within the big five Pilanesberg National Park is perfect for you. The lodge is the perfect getaway for families and small groups.

These are just some of the great self-catering options available to you on Talk about being spoilt for choice.
