A luxury bolt hole on the southeastern outskirts of Pretoria, The African Pride Irene Country Lodge offers a tranquil haven from the busyness of the city - the perfect setting for a weekend break or romantic getaway. Catch Instagram-worthy sunsets over the picturesque lake while listening to the sound of bird song from the bird sanctuary, watch out for one or two monkeys playing in the trees, and you may even spot a bunny that will let you come close if you are really gentle.

The hotel's architecture and décor match its green surroundings, with elements of nature evident around every corner, from the pebble-studded showers to the delicate ivy that wraps around every pillar. The breakfast puts a spin on the traditional buffet with chefs making dishes as you wait and all the meat served has been aged and smoked onsite.

Start the day at the spa with a relaxing Indigenous heated massage or a 'Warrior'' massage. Surrounded by a stinkwood forest and set in the historic cookhouse of the original farm, the Camdeboo Spa design includes quirky touches like fireplaces transformed into little vanity tables. The spa has its own signature product range MILK, which is also available to purchase to take home. Spa treatments cost extra but access to the gym, sauna and steam room is available to all.

​For the most romantic experience enjoy drinks on the lawn overlooking the lake where you can admire the graceful swans floating past. Alternatively golfers can take advantage of the adjoining golf course. Opposite the hotel is The Irene Dairy Farm, reconnect with the pastoral lifestyle and get some boerenkaas (traditional Dutch-style farmhouse cheese made with unpastuerised milk) to take home.
