The bush: A place where everyone wants to go to relax and be one with nature. We here at Blydevallei are very privileged to be able to live in the bushveld and see nature every day. Even so, taking deliberate time out to enjoy the bush is still a major spoil for us.
Once a year all the girls in the office get a special treat. This year we were sent to Kapama Game Lodge! We stayed in their new rooms at the River Lodge and felt like royals. The rooms are amazing with a modern rustic feel and the food was of nothing less than five-star quality.
When we arrived, we were greeted with a welcoming drink and very friendly staff. As this year was a stressful and challenging one, the spa was the perfect place for us to start our breakaway. We were able to unwind and release tension. The spa treatments were honestly exceptional! We left feeling relaxed and ready to search for some of South Africa’s beloved wildlife. Our spa treatments were followed by a 3-hour game drive to enjoy and appreciate nature.
Dinner was served on our return: Beetroot and goats cheese salad, pulled lamb, roasted chicken, panna cotta, cheese platters and so much more! The choices were plenty!
After a good night’s rest, we woke to another game drive, and this was the highlight of our trip. We saw four of the big five in less than 30 minutes. How lucky were we?
Needless to say, it was an incredible trip, and we now feel ready to start planning for our next season. We want to thank the wonderful staff at Kapama for their extraordinary service and friendliness and our generous CEO for spoiling us and showing us that we are appreciated.
Thank you, Pieter!
