6 Things Mothers Really Want!

It’s a feast of holidays at the moment, we hope you are spending them wisely and enjoying quality time with those who love you the most.

Whilst doing the groceries yesterday, I was awoken to the fact that Mother’s Day is hot on our heels. For those who are not aware – you would need to ensure that the Mom in your life feels loved on Sunday the 12th of May!

We asked a few moms what their idea of magic would be for Mothers Day and this is the list they handed us:

  • A Sunday Drive:

    Mhmm, so where to? There are several exceptional routes on the N3 Gateway which you can saunter along that offer exciting biting and activities.
    From Durban: Travel along the M13 up to Kloof and continue into Hillcrest where you will head up Botha’s Hill to find your way to the Valley of a 1000 Hills. Lovely lunch stops, shops, a Safari Park and steam train to keep you busy…

From Johannesburg: Head down the N3TC and into Clarens to see spectacular sandstone cliffs, and where you will find food, art, horse riding, adventure thrills and good coffee, plus Golden Gate Highlands National Park to work off the Easter treats. Surely a drive to Clarens means an overnight/weekend stay!

  • A Spa Treatment
    Who doesn’t love a dreamy massage, pedicure or facial? Moms deserve the love!
    We found the Midlands Meander’s list of Spa locations to book for your mom!

“Quiet please, Spa Treatment in Session,” says every mother!

  • Wine
    Yes, there are moments when moms really just do need a glass of wine! Certainly the Cape holds many vineyards, but did you know KwaZulu-Natal has their very own KZN grown grapes?  We are seeing more vineyards opening up on our N3 Gateway route.  Cathedral Peak Wine Estate in the Drakensberg, is host to a delicious Pinotage and more.

  • Tea-time Treats
    Mary Poppins was right, just “a spoonful of sugar...” is all one needs. Ooh the delicious wonders that are along the N3 Gateway. Take a drive to the Southern Drakensberg to discover farm stalls laden with homemade treats and of course coffee shops filled with freshly baked yumminess.

  • A Weekend Away with the Family
    What joy it brings to a mother’s heart when one is surrounded by the sound of family, be it crazy or calm. A weekend away to your mom’s favourite location is bound to remain in her heart forever! With the N3 Gateway having an abundance of great destinations to choose from, be sure to type in moms no 1 area in our “search” tab on the N3 Gateway website to find your ultimate family getaway!

  • Activities to work off Easter Indulgences
    What a great idea! Take mom for a slack-packing trip through the Karkloof or Dargle with Spekboom Tours. How picturesque and seriously relaxing and the health advantages of being out in nature are truly endless!
