South Africa has many mountainous areas to explore and many of them will have options for accommodation establishments some even have cabins to stay in adding to the charm of being away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s so much nicer to immerse oneself in country living and staying in a cabin far away from the madding crowd will help greatly with this.

This entirely off the grid mountain retreat runs exclusively off solar power and wood and can only be accessed by a 4x4 so bare this in mind before travel. It might even be best to hire a 4x4 if you don’t - in fact own one. The closest major city is P.E but there is also a good chance you could be making your way from Cape Town. If so Cape Town car hire is your best bet of affordable vehicle hire. Go back to the roots of nature in this picturesque destination which also has an abundance of wildlife to revel in a s well.

Most people won’t believe it but South Africa actually has a bit a snow and this destination is regarded as one of the best places in the whole of the country to experience this. They even boast a dedicated ski club and ski lift and the fact that it’s only roughly three hours from Cape Town makes it a popular yet chilly winter getaway. During the summer months, the climate changes dramatically and the cabin itself dates back as far as 130 years making it a bit of history lesson in itself. The house itself sleeps six people and is roughly R2000 a weekend to rent. For more information visit this website.
