Escape the stress of city life this Easter weekend at ANEW Resort Hunters Rest

With Easter weekend coming up, South African citizens have to keep it local with their travel plans. This year, why not leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind and explore the many exciting and family-friendly destinations throughout the country, starting with the magnificent Magaliesberg.

The Magaliesberg are among the oldest mountains in the world and stretch for 120km from Bronkhorstspruit Dam east of Pretoria to Rustenburg in the west. A popular and breath-taking destination for adventure seekers near and far, Magaliesberg is a mountain climber’s dream and a sanctuary for nature lovers. Today, much of the area is a protected environment that attracts thousands of visitors who come to break free from the stress of city life. It is also the location of ANEW Resort Hunters Rest, a luxury hotel beautifully set in the foothills of the mountain and offering guests the perfect blend of comfort and adventure in the heart of the North West.

According to Alan Campbell, Sales & Marketing Director at ANEW Hotels & Resorts, now is the time to truly explore the country’s incredible beauty. “South Africa has so much to offer the local traveller, and with Easter weekend coming up, there is no better time to plan a break from the city and discover what makes our country so well-loved by international tourists from every corner of the world.”

He continues, “The Magaliesberg is one of South Africa’s most majestic attractions; even older than Mount Everest by 100 years, yet so many of us have yet to discover its beauty. We want our visitors to experience the country in the most authentic way, and the location of ANEW Resort Hunters Rest really speaks to that purpose.”

Surrounded by indigenous fauna and flora, ANEW Resort Hunters Rest is the perfect place to relax in tranquillity or indulge in adventure. “We are situated just a 90-minute drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria, so we encourage locals of the area and further afield to come and experience this picture-perfect destination. Whether it’s family vacations, corporate stays or destination weddings, ANEW Resort Hunters Rest is an experience you won’t easily forget.”

Guests can also tuck into a delicious breakfast in the restaurant every morning before setting out for the day’s adventures, including quad biking, hiking, canopy tours, paintball, pony rides for kids and much more. For those looking for a more relaxing pace, soak up the sun at the outdoor pool, enjoy some pampering at the on-site health and beauty spa, take in a few holes at the golf course or enjoy a delightful picnic in the surrounding area.

“Our country resort doesn’t just offer guests adventure and tranquillity but places you in the perfect location to experience some of the most magnificent features of the North West.
