So many accommodation establishments like to describe themselves as a “home away from home” in their publicity material… but is that what people travel for? Don’t people travel to experience something different? Something that is a lasting memory? To talk about and share with friends?

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.
Situated alongside a lake in the Elgin Valley, less than an hour from Cape Town, Old Mac Daddy offers quirky accommodation in a variety of holiday homes and refurbished vintage trailers. There is also an outdoor swimming pool, a beach with its own bar, guest lounge and a restaurant and bar. Free WiFi access is available.
Or how about sleeping in a Tepee at Little Wing Teepee Camp near Underberg in the Southern Drakensberg?
