It is the very first holiday break of the year, and if you plan it just right, all you need is 4 days away from home and you’ll feel fresh and relaxed, ready to go back to the office and back to school.

Easter is right around the corner, and this year it fits in neatly with the first school holiday of the year, making it just perfect for a proper family break. When you are planning your Easter weekend holiday, there are a few things that you can do to ensure that the holiday you have planned is one that you will remember and look back on fondly for the rest of the year.

Whether you have already planned ahead for your holiday or if you are still trying to piece together the ideal Easter holiday, we have a couple of tips and some information that you can use to make the most of the time off.

  1. Choose the right place to go

South Africa is on the cusp of winter and there are many beautiful places that are up there on the list that have a lot of autumn beauty. One of the more beautiful places you can head to for the Easter long weekend is Nelspruit. The weather is perfect and it is always rather quiet around here at this time of the year.

  1. Decide how to spend your time

You could be really looking forward to a lazy weekend of relaxation, in which case Pensao is a great place to go, because we have plenty of wonderful places to sit outside and bask in that Autumn sunshine, or you could be looking for an adventure, in which case you will find all sorts of wonderful things to do and to see if you are in our corner of the world. This year, you will find all sorts of interesting Easter themed activities and even an Easter market, up in the mountain village of Kaapsehoop. The village is perfect for a day trip and you can also use your time up there to walk along the escarpment and breath in that cold mountain air.

  1. Find an Easter Egg hunt

If you are travelling with children, the Easter Egg Hunt is a must. You can either find a place hosting such an experience, or you can create your own.

  1. Get everyone excited

As one of the few family holiday times of the year, it is worth getting everyone excited about heading off someplace new for the weekend. Be sure to share the plans with your family and help them get into the holiday spirit.

  1. Find a local Church

If you are religious, finding a local church to attend on Good Friday and Easter Sunday is something to consider. There are plenty of churches, especially here in Nelspruit, hosting services and holiday makers are always welcome to attend.

Make your reservation for your stay at Pensao if you plan on heading to Nelspruit for your Easter Break. We have a range of comfortable rooms available, and a beautiful garden to enjoy.
