Spring time with Greyhound! Four things to do as South Africa blooms
It’s Spring time, the leaves are returning, the flowers are blooming and everything is getting that little more cheerful. Yes, South Africa is getting ready for spring time and here at Greyhound, the one of the most luxurious bus service on the continent, we’re getting ready for it too.
Yes, there is nothing quite like a pending summer and nothing quite like the freshness of the coming spring season.
Here are four things to do to get the most from this colourful time.
1. Check out the Langebaan bloom in the West Coast National Park
The flower bloom in the West Coast National Park just north of Cape Town is widely regarded as the most magnificent bloom in the world. It is truly stunning and possibly the most colourful thing you will ever see. Blankets of every colour flower cover every corner for as far as the eye can see.
Catch a Greyhound bus to Cape Town! It will be worth every blooming moment.
2. Head to the Free State Botanical Gardens in Bloemfontein
The City of Roses is always one to savour, especially in the springtime rays. Head on over to the blooming wonder of its botanical gardens and enjoy a picnic in its haven of greenery and colour.
Various routes are there for the walking too! End them off with a shaded picnic and enjoy the longer days. Enjoy these gardens and book your Greyhound bus ticket to Bloemfontein.
3. Take a hike in the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve in Durban
If you’re in around the Durban area, perhaps a light hike will settle your springtime appetite. At Krantzkloof there are plenty of those, including picnic spots to enjoy and chill. The waterfall should be wonderful this time of year too and as always, it’s a great place to take in the KZN sun.
Book your Greyhound bus ticket to travel on our Dreamliner coach to Durban and make your way to this beautiful reserve.
4. It’s Spring time-catch some shade at your favourite local braai spot
We all know that braai’ing is our favourite local tradition, from the depths of the Zulu Kingdom to the plains of the Karoo. Call it what you will, throwing some meat on the fire is more about culture and identity than it is about food these days. That’s what it means to us! That’s our heritage.
So, in that spirit find a local braai spot and get cooking. Whether it is at the beach, in the mountains or somewhere in the desert, make it happen! Springtime is the best time, they say. And with all its colour and good feelings, perhaps they’re right! Either way, we’re really lucky to have a country beautiful enough to celebrate it, so go on, celebrate!
Here at Greyhound, where you can get luxurious bus tickets in South Africa and beyond, we love the celebration. That’s why we’re all about getting you there. Book your bus tickets today at www.greyhound.co.za or call us on 011 611 8000 | 087 352 0352.
Happy Spring – and enjoy the bloom!
