Life in 2019 can feel a little hectic at times, right? What with seemingly endless global crisis after crisis, daily societal pressures, mounting work stress, you name it!; if you wanted a reason to fret, you need just look around... there are countless.

That's why it's important - now more than ever - to take time for yourself; to restore mind, body and soul to their natural state of calm and bliss.

Then, when you go out into the world, any and every challenge that is thrown your way can be tackled with ease, grace and a wide smile on the face.

At Old Mac Daddy, we're all about that slow-paced, life is good, chilled vibe.

Only an hour's drive from Cape Town, Old Mac Daddy is an ideal city escape where you (and Bae of course) can just get away from it all.

The forested slopes of the Elgin Valley, the fresh countryside air, the sweeping vistas and tranquil ambience ensure that any trip to Old Mac Daddy will get all those necessary R's in:

Rest, Relaxation and Revitalisation.
