Are you tired of hopping from Bedroom de la Villa to hanging out at Cafe la Kitchenette? We don’t blame you!
Many people are wondering if it is still possible to plan for travel in these uncertain times.
The harsh reality of the Covid-19 pandemic and the national and global lockdown has disrupted our luxury of movement and the pleasure of travelling; the excitement of booking flights and hotels and the anticipation of spending some time away from home. While local travel restrictions might slowly be lifted, international travel will remain inaccessible for quite some time, #catchflightsnotfeelings and #passportgang will have to take the back seat for now while we try to navigate this new normal when it comes to travel.
Travel will see a rise in local travel post lockdown and maybe even after the CoronaVirus as travellers will be hesitant to venture out into global territories in fear of getting sick and being quarantined away from home. Many will avoid places like the airport and would rather entertain the idea of driving themselves to their holiday destination. Road trips are definitely going to trend post lockdown. To keep up with self-distancing, private rental accommodation such as Airbnb will trend as more and more people will be staying away from high volume places like hotels and resorts.
Taking this time to explore and give back to our country might not be such a bad idea after all with having experienced the national lockdown and suffering from cabin fever, we cannot wait to experience everything outdoors from beaches to hiking, even if it’s done right here in our country!
South Africa has many amazing experiences waiting for us to dive into post lockdown!

We are itching to start planning for that much-needed post lockdown getaway. Here are some local spots we are planning to visit once it’s safe to travel again.
