Lodges TRAVEL NOTES
TAU Game Lodge
The cooler months are ideal for a safari, as the landscape offers superb visibility of animals, whilst nocturnal species are less inclined to hide from the wintery sun during the day.
Checking into the newly refurbished accommodation, the private patio offers a feast for the eyes, as wildlife congregate around the TAU Game Lodge waterhole, only meters from the chalet. Meals are ‘safari indulgence’ a la COVID-19 and the lodge offers a wide range of exceptional dining favourites, both hot and cold, served plated.

Mosaic Lagoon Lodge
South Africa certainly boast some of the most incredible diverse scenery, from safari bushveld to majestic mountain ridges, winelands, dessert like terrain and city suburbs.
When it comes to escaping from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, checking-in somewhere removed tends to be a good option. So when the colder Cape months draw in, retiring to the banks of the Hermanus Lagoon with good food, a roaring fire and scenery for days is the way to go, with Mosaic Lagoon Lodge, offering a romantic, comfortable and remote retreat that ticks all the boxes.

CENTENNIAL SCHOOLS with CEO and Founder, Shaun Fuchs
South Africa’s educational system faces many challenges. As technology, innovation and youth culture has advanced to the stage that children now have access to smart devices that can aid them immeasurably, they’re subject to the practices and systems of education and schooling that were designed for a different era. The consequences of the pandemic amplified the need for change.
It’s in this spirit that Shaun Fuchs, entrepreneur and long-time educationalist, launched Centennial Schools this year. As CEO and founder of he aims to address the needs of modern school students in this new era of educational change. At Centennial Schools, each teacher has been hand-picked and equipped with the skills to be best prepared to work in a re-engineered learning landscape, from both an academic, emotional and physical perspective.
There are no entrance exams however, each student is required to attend a personal interview with the school Principal. Students will be able to take advantage of unique facilities such as a Student Café, student lounges, collaborative hubs which act as student boardrooms and encourage students to brainstorm and pressure test ideas, as well as a ‘chill’ hub.
