This Easter, if you’re looking for Property to Rent, you should definitely consider holidaying in Gauteng. Traditionally, people would flock down to the closest beach for the long weekend. But, if you want a change of pace and the thought of spending the long weekend in holiday traffic, is not one that appeals to you, we might have an alternative for you to consider. In truth, Gauteng has so much to offer and it’s such a pity that more people don’t use the quiet of holidays to explore its many gems.
An Enjoyable Alternative
If you’re looking for a piece of the quiet life, Gauteng has a lot to offer in that regard. It’s not often considered by many, but one of the busiest cities in Africa, actually has a lot to offer for the budding holidaymaker that doesn’t want to fight off a million people just to feel a little beach sand between their toes. If it’s water you want, why not pay a visit to the Vaal Dam, which borders Gauteng and the Free State. There is always plenty to do, accommodation is usually fairly well priced and it will allow you to enjoy a refreshing swim, the last one of summer, without having to worry about your leg being chewed off by a shark or angry tourist.
If you don’t fancy getting your feet wet, you can pay a visit to one of the many nature reserves or national parks for a spot of animal viewing. If you want to have a holiday with a difference, Gauteng also plays host to some of the biggest and most important museums in South Africa. There are also flea markets to look at, and festivals, like the Rand Show which is held annually over the Easter weekend. You can visit Gold Reef City, the Union Buildings in Pretoria and you could pay a visit to the Sterkfontein Caves and the Cradle of Humankind to see the oldest fossils in the world, the famous Mrs Ples and Little Foot.
Time for a Change
If you are looking for a change of pace and don’t fancy the idea of joining the rest of South Africa on the drive down to the beach – or for that matter, if you’re one of the many unfortunate Capetonians and Durbanites that has to suffer at the hands of the invading tourists – why not pay a visit to Gauteng. If you’ve been enticed by the idea of a quiet holiday and are now wondering where to find holiday property to rent, have a look at the ads on Junk Mail. You’ll find hundreds of different types of holiday property to rent at extremely reasonable prices.
