There is nothing quite as amazing, relaxing, reinvigorating, and memorable, as a bushveld holiday. For those who are travelling down from the city for a weekend away, a stay at Rock View Lodge is ideal. Not only is our lodge made to make guests feel as though they are closer to nature, but our location is convenient for those who want to have a bush break that is also close enough to a city, should they need anything.

The key to making the most of your bushveld breakaway is to know what you want from your holiday and to then plan accordingly so that each and every aspect of your break is taken care of.

Most who choose this type of accommodation, choose it for its rustic aesthetic and for the fact that this kind of break will really allow them to leave the stresses of their day-to-day life, if only for a little while. Being in the bush will help you to disconnect from it all, and it will give you the perfect excuse to not look at your phone for a few days. If what you want is a peaceful break, well away from your daily stresses, the bushveld break will be just what you need.

Once you have figured out what you want from your trip, the next thing you need to do is to plan your holiday.

What to bring along?

  1. Pack that book you have been meaning to read

We all have that book, or that movie, or that hobby, which we have been meaning to get to and just never get around to doing. When you are spending some time out in the bush, with nothing but time on your hands, now is a great opportunity to do those things you have been putting off or just not getting time to do.

  1. Plan some time outdoors

Go hiking, go exploring or do some fishing, here at the lodge. However you plan to spend your time outdoors, make sure that a part of your holiday is spent outdoors, soaking up the sunshine and just being active. We spend far too much of our time sitting at desks, so a bush break is the ideal excuse to work up a sweat.

  1. Pack your favourite food and snacks

If you are staying in self-catered accommodation in Nelspruit, like ours, then you should make sure that you pack some snacks and good food. Making a feast for yourself and your family is going to make your holiday that little bit more fun, relaxed, and exciting.

Rock View Lodge is the perfect place to have a bush breakaway. Our peaceful and beautiful lodge offers guests a chance to get away from it all, and to really just enjoy some time in the bush. For more information you can browse our website or you can contact us.
