So, the six-week wait since last payday is finally over and you simply have to spend it on something, right? Why not treat yourself to a weekend mini-getaway?

Sunshine, sea and relaxation is the order of the day, Mother City-lovers, so join me at the following top three getaway spots from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 January, and discover why You Don’t Need A Holiday, You Need Cape Town:

Roughing it in style at Slangkop Tented Camp

Fall asleep beneath the stars, with waves gently breaking on the shore at the Slangkop Tented Camp in Kommetjie.

Ideal for an impromptu breakaway, this slice of rustic heaven boasts an unbeatable view of the Slangkop lighthouse, a well-supplied boma and a huge braai area. 

While staying at this Table Mountain National Park treasure, try some walking and hiking trails, visit the cute penguins at Boulders beach or take a day trip out to Cape Point.

For bookings, please call +27 (0)21 701 8692.

Living it up like a beach tycoon at Ocean Shores

So maybe you’ll never be able to afford that million-dollar beach house you dream about, but you can pretend like you do with the Ocean Shores self-catering apartments in Blaauwberg.

Enjoy your dazzling, sun-soaked, sea breeze-filled 48-hour stay at this oceanside complex – and don’t forget to visit the nearby Milnerton Flea Market for great bargains.

Call +27 (0)21 518 8000 for more details.

Keeping up with the Van der Merwes at Chelaya Country Lodge

Go ahead and splurge a little on this luxury homestead on the outskirts of Somerset WestStrand and Gordon’s Bay.

The perfect place to retire after a tasty day out in the surrounding Winelands, Chelaya Country Lodge will also treat you to free Wi-Fi, an exquisite infinity pool overlooking False Bay and the Cape Peninsula, and fully-stocked bars.
