A Drakensberg Retreat this Women’s Day

Celebrate National Women’s Day 2015 with a relaxing and refreshing mountain retreat. You deserve it! Make the most of the long weekend and escape to the Drakensberg with the girls.

Women’s Day 2015

In case you didn’t get the memo, this year Women’s Day just so happens to fall on a Sunday. This means that the Monday after is a holiday! But long weekend aside; 9 August is a day to honour South Africa’s female heroes who marched against social injustices way back in 1956. So use the extended weekend to celebrate their courage, and treat yourself to female fun with your friends, sisters, mothers and daughters in the Northern Drakensberg. Book your stay at Oaklands Country Manor – we’re only a stone’s throw away.

Something for Adventurous Women

Or take a walk on the wild side this Women’s Day. Honour the courage of South Africa’s female heroes by taking a courageous leap yourself…off the edge of a cliff (harness attached, of course)! Swing, slide, glide and ride through the northern Drakensberg landscape with All Out Adventures’ outdoor activities.

Kathy’s Kitchen at Oaklands

As far as influential female chefs go, Oaklands’ Kathy Romer-Lee is one of South Africa’s best. Her veld-to-plate cooking ideology embraces the use of fresh, home-grown produce, and what she cannot pluck from the garden she sources from local farming communities. She promises unfussy and wholesome home-style food that’s big on flavour, so give yourself a taste of the Drakensberg countryside at Kathy’s Kitchen.
Oaklands is a mere 3-hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Durban, so you don’t have to travel too far for long-weekend in the Drakensberg sun. Make a mini-road trip of it this Women’s Day!
