GIRLS GIN GETAWAY ITINERARY
ARRIVE ON FRIDAY EVENING
Arrive and enjoy chocolate and a welcome drink with your group. Check into your rustic-luxury farm accommodations – 16th-century farm-style, but with all the modern luxuries and a choice of private balconies and rooms. Take the shuttle to the Republic of Swellendam Restaurant where you'll enjoy a food and gin pairing experience before the shuttle returns the group to Rotterdam Boutique Hotel for a lovely night's sleep.
Sleep in or take an early morning stroll through the orchards – or see the jersey cows come into the pasture. Then tuck into a delicious breakfast on the patio at the Rotterdam Restaurant before in-room pampering spa treatments.
Then, have a light lunch in the courtyard and catch up with the girls. Head to the patio to practice yoga with an instructor and enjoy the view.
Then, on Saturday evening, you’ll go to the neighbouring game farm Kwetu. Enjoy a game drive where you can see giraffe, ostrich, zebra and a range of antelope. Toast the day with a sunset safari picnic looking out over the Buffeljags River and the wildlife with Swellendam’s famous Clock Peaks in the background.
What's a girls getaway without a night on the town? The shuttle will drop the group off and collect you as soon as you are ready to return to the hotel.
Wake up to a leisurely breakfast feast and receive your goodies bags. You and your friends will all receive a bag of complimentary beauty and cosmetic gifts.
