We all look forward to our holidays – they give us a chance to do exactly what we want and forget the stresses of everyday life. Everyone looks for something slightly different from their vacation. Here’s our rundown of some of the most popular activities.
Something most of us like to do for at least part of our break. Sunbathing is the ultimate in relaxation and nothing quite compares to a lazy day by the pool reading a book. Make sure you apply plenty of sun cream though and avoid the hot midday sun.
For some, sunbathing is a little too boring. A game of golf is perfect for a spot of light exercise and a way to appreciate the local scenery and views. Keen golfers will relish the chance to work on their game using a new course and for novices some holiday golf is a great introduction to this popular hobby.
For more strenuous exercise why try not a game of tennis? Fantastic for getting the heart racing, it’s something you and your partner can enjoy together. Unwind with a dip in the pool afterwards. If your holiday accommodation offers a floodlit court, enjoy an evening game and take advantage of the lower temperatures.
Popular amongst most holiday makers, a walk can be as gentle or as strenuous as you want. Choose to follow designated walking trails or go out on your own for a feeling of freedom. It’s a great way to get to know your new surroundings and you’ll be able to enjoy the views as well as getting some light exercise.
Most people like to take an interest in their holiday spot and visit any well known landmarks or beauty spots. Many holidaymakers swot up before they arrive but a lot will take the advice of the accommodation staff. They may even be able to point you in the direction of undiscovered – and unspoilt – areas that you otherwise might not have heard about. Take your camera to capture your trips. At Kruger Park Lodge, our visitors are lucky enough to have the Kruger National Park just 10km away – perfect for sightseeing ventures.
Enjoying local cuisine
Sampling fine food is one of the joys of being on holiday. Ditch the diet and tuck into scrumptious meals made from local ingredients. Visit restaurants and have your food prepared for you or buy ingredients and enjoy cooking a homemade meal. Holidays are also the time to enjoy native wines as well as the odd cocktail – especially delicious if sipped around the pool.
