Its not news that times are tight and cash strapped South Africans are having to cut costs. For many this may mean saying goodbye to family getaways, romantic breakaways, and time away with friends. Thankfully, a group of top tourist attractions and venues on the Cape West Coast have teamed together to create a special West Coast Way 3 for 2 deal that offers fantastic value for those wanting to escape the city for a much needed break that does not break the bank. Perfect timing with mid-year school holidays having arrived!
The Cape West Coast enjoys more sunny days throughout the year than any other coastline in South Africa. This – plus the fact that it is literally on Cape Town’s door step, makes it the perfect destination for a getaway.
Pay for 2, stay and play for 3
Until 31 July you can enjoy a free extra night on the Cape West Coast with the West Coast Way 3 for 2 deal. Book for 2 week nights at any of the participating venues and you will get a third consecutive week night free.
Participating venues include: Thali Thali Game Lodge; The Lodge at Atlantic Beach; Piekenierskloof Mountain Resort; !Khwa ttu; Eagles Nest At Arendzicht in Lamberts Bay; Vensterklip and the Crayfish Trails in Elands Bay; as well as a bumper offering in Darling with Disa Lodge; Darling Lodge; Daisy Darling; Lookout Darling; The White House; Bees Knees B&B and Maison De L’amor all offering 3 for 2 special deals.
“This 3 for 2 special offer allows visitors to extend their visit to the Cape West Coast – a free extra day to get out there and explore all that this wonderful part of the world has to offer,” says Carmen Lerm, founder and CEO of West Coast Way who have put this special offer package together. “We are very pleased to offer South Africans this 3 for 2 special offer as we realise that travel is one area that suffers during tough economic times. This offer allows people can get out and about making memories and gathering experiences.”
Did someone say “road trip”?
All of the participating 3 for 2 venues form part of West Coast Ways “Road Trip With The Most Twists” – a unique self-drive road trip made up of six circular sightseeing routes including the Berg, Foodie, Cultural, Wild, scenic Tractor and Cape Way Routes – all of which are designed to showcase the many fun and exciting attractions and activities that are on offer on the Cape West Coast and inland areas.
“A road trip is undoubtedly one of the best ways to explore an area – personal, intimate travel experiences in your own time and at your own pace. Our West Coast Way sightseeing routes allow visitors to mix and match stops along the various different routes – tailor making a road trip that perfectly suites your time constraints, budgets, interests etc.,” explains Lerm.
