    Thumbs up Weekend getaways

    Not for me, but offspring wants to go somewhere for a weekend break with 7 mates from work, all in the 20-25 age bracket, so I'm assuming camping is a no no!
    We've said for them to leave it till the new year, as December will definitely be more expensive, so looking at Jan/Feb
    What were looking for is anything within say two hours drive from Joburg, SAFE, youngster and colour friendly, as they will be a mixed bunch, and something that can accommodate up to 10 peeps, to give them some space. Oh and reasonably priced too.
    Thanks in advance

    Zion Game Lodge in the heart of the Waterberg is very nice. Dr. John Van Zyl, veterinarian at Vaalwater, opens his lodge to visitors during the quieter times (summer) at reasonable rates. They'll probably have the lodge to themselves, which I assume would be preferable. See http://waterbergwildlifevets.co.za/i.../accommodation.

    I would suggest Buffelspoort. Close to Jhb, lots of things to do for the youngsters.
