Reaching 60 years of age is a blessing and has numerous advantages like being able to retire and, of course, the numerous discounts afforded to you from businesses across the country.
Have you tried these 3 W's as a pensioner?
Take a drive out to Diemersfontein Wine and Country Estate in Wellington in the Western Cape and enjoy a delicious meal at their restaurant followed by a walk through the sprawling garden or dip your feet in the pool. You can also enjoy some of their award-winning wines and paired with chocolates or biltong. What's more, if you want to extend your stay, pensioners enjoy a discount on all midweek stays.
Another delightful day trip would be to visit Robertson Winery every first Wednesday of the month, where pensioners receive discounted prices on all wine at their cellar door. Along the way, there are numerous farms, restaurants and markets with stunning views of nature.
What could be better than a laid-back West Coast style break-away complete with beach walks, bird-watching and even game drives? The 'Weskus' is a favourite for those wanting a quiet escape with beautiful sunsets and great food. For those eligible, Thali Thali offers a whopping 33% pensioner discount on accommodation.
The Wild Coast is rural South Africa at its best with rolling hills, footprint-free beaches (with the odd cow making an appearance) and pretty seaside villages. A number of hotels and accommodation places offer pensioner’s discounts too, like Mazeppa Hotel, nestled in a beautiful setting of palms and tropical plants, above a broad beach.

The oceans around Cape Town are heavily polluted with a variety of chemicals and pharmaceuticals that are now being found in the flesh of fish being caught. Fish found in waters off Kalk Bay have been found to contain everything from antibiotics and pain killers to cleaning chemicals and other toxic substances with at least 15 different chemical compounds being found in alarming numbers.
It is always good news to hear about declining levels of poaching of any kind. For decades the Niassa Reserve in Mozambique was one of the top spots for illegal elephant ivory poaching. We are elated to report the good news that this once “ivory factory” has not seen a single elephant killed since 2018.
