Retirement might mean a whole lot of stay at home activities for your friends, but sedentary senior years are not for everybody.
"I want to have fun when I retire!" we hear you say. There are plenty of Senior-friendly places of interest to explore near Johannesburg that don’t require the energy and agility of youth.
On top of that, Senior Citizens often qualify for Senior discounts with a Pensioner’s Discount Card (issued by SAARP - South African Association of Retired Persons) or even a valid ID Document.
Many places to stay, entertainment venues and retail stores offer reduced rates that make for a very affordable post-retirement getaway.
Exploring the area north of Johannesburg has plenty to offer the mature traveller. There are the magnificent Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, various cultural and art and craft outlets, restaurants and spas to visit.
If fine dining is your scene then there are a number of internationally recognised restaurants less than 10km from Random Harvest Country Cottages.
Most times, the best part of a busy day is having somewhere relaxed, comfortable and safe to come back to.
Random Harvest Country Cottages offer senior-friendly country accommodation in private, self-contained cottages, each nestled in its own pretty garden. We have even done away with the hustle and bustle of a busy restaurant, and evening meals are brought to the comfort of your own cottage, or a barbeque is provided on request. Breakfasts and lunches can either be enjoyed in our talked-about tea garden or again, in your own accommodation.
A welcome pack of information is supplied to all our guests, which includes useful telephone numbers. A lift on the golf cart to and from your cottage to the tea garden and nursery are just a cell phone call away.
Senior Citizens and Pensioners are offered a midweek (Sunday to Thursday) 20% discount on their accommodation. Coupled with our Wednesday Pensioners day in the Nursery and Tea Garden, this makes for a most affordable stay.
