Savvy travellers know that the best trips are not just about relaxation or adventure but also value for money. This is especially true when travelling in South Africa during the festive season when millions descend on the coast. If you want to find something that takes you off the beaten path, look no further than Gauteng, home to the nation’s capital and the City of Gold. If you want to be a smart traveller who wants to create indelible memories while also avoiding the festive rush and keeping your budget intact, then South Africa’s richest province is the place to be.

Travel smart not far

Smart travel isn’t about cutting corners on experiences; it’s about navigating your journey wisely and living your best life without breaking the bank. Gauteng provides an enticing playground for those in pursuit of cultural enrichment, a splash of history, and all the urban escapades you could ever hope for. What’s more, because everyone is headed to the coast, you will find fantastic festive prices for flights and hotel stays. Take the stress out of Christmas planning instead and take advantage of a curated festive guide at The Capital.


Avoiding Crowds and Peak Season Surcharges: A Smart Traveler’s Advantage

One of the hidden perks of travelling inland is escaping the maddening crowds and the surge in prices during peak seasons. Johannesburg and Pretoria, sitting away from the tourist-heavy coastlines, provide a serene escape where you can enjoy all the trappings of the urban jungle without all the hustle and bustle.

The Capital of Fun

Pretoria isn’t just the home of the Union Buildings, it’s the capital of good times. For those seeking outdoor adventures, Pretoria is a stone’s throw away from the Hartebeesport Dam, the Cradle of Humankind, horseback riding, and the Dinokeng Game Reserve.

If you’re looking for a place to lay your head down in between excursions, The Capital Menlyn Maine or Trilogy in Pretoria not only ensure comfortable stays but opens up a world of activities. With direct access to Menlyn Maine Shopping Centre, you can shop till your ankles hurt while the little ones enjoy child-friendly activities like Bounce. If you want to get sexy for New Year’s Eve, you can also pamper yourself with some hair, nails, and spa treatments.
