Platbos Forest, Gansbaai, Western Cape on Budget-Getaways
Platbos Forest accommodation near Gansbaai, Western Cape. You're not even halfway through Blyton's classic, The Faraway Tree, and already the kids are hankering after a real forest adventure.
Sandy Cape Campsite - Jurien Bay
Sandy Cape Recreational Park is one of the best camping sites I've encountered in this part of the world thus far. It's a comfortable driving distance from the city so we could catch brunch in comfort at home before heading outdoor. It's relatively close to town so every morning I could still grab my cafe-sourced morning coffee in less time than it takes for me to start my own billy tea. And it's right by the beach so I could have the kids in the water and out of my hair most of the time.
