Midlands Meander

Day 1

  • Take a scenic drive to the Valley of a Thousand Hills.
  • Visit the beautiful Howick Falls, where you can buy curios and gifts.
  • If you an adrenalin junkie, you may want to canopy tour at Karkloof Falls.
  • Drive along the R103 for breathtaking views of the Midlands.

Day 2

  • The Nelson Mandela Capture Site and Museum is one of the most historic sites in the Midlands and you don’t want to miss it!
  • Visit Piggly Wiggly for lunch and browse the cute little shops and goods for sale.
  • Never seen a boarding school before? Go to Michaelhouse and ask if you can have a look around.
  • We heard Swissland cheese is worth a visit. But we were in a sedan and it was pouring with rain, and it was offroad. We didn’t want to take any chances.

Day 3

  • Drive along Nottingham Road.
  • Stopover at the Blueberry Cafe for the best blueberry cheesecake ever!
  • If you a culinary enthusiast, you may want to have lunch at the Midlands Kitchen.
