It seems there have been quite a few new restaurants opening up all over Jozi lately and one that I have been hearing a lot about is Beast. Beast is located in Weltevreden Park at the Rock Cottage Centre and a couple of weekends ago we headed over to give this place a try for lunch.
Back in January, we returned to one of my favorite little parks for a weekend getaway. Marakele National Park is located in the Waterberg Mountains, north of Gauteng in the Limpopo Province. It is about a 2.5 hour drive from the Joburg northern suburbs, perfect for a quick weekend away in the bush. Strangely enough, it seems this park is relatively undiscovered by Joburgers as many of our friends and coworkers have never even heard of it. This is actually one of the pluses; I have never seen this park crowded so if you are looking to avoid the masses, come here.
