Do you travel to be inspired? Or for a home-away-from-home?

Here are some of the really different accommodation places added to CapeInfo recently:

Sleep in an ancient indigenous forest at Platbos Forest Reserve, situated at the foot of Africa. Described by botanist and author, Professor Eugene Moll, as a “unique South African forest jewel”, this is a forest that enchants and inspires all who visit.
