7 reasons why a weekend away from technology is what you need

7 reasons why a weekend away from technology is what you need

African animals, the beauty of the Karoo in the Western Cape and very little cell coverage with minimal wifi are some of the things that make going to make your stay at Inverdoorn Game Reserve a holiday to remember. 

 

Why? Because you have no excuse not to lose yourself in nature and the company of others.

 

I know it might sound frightening but let me explain to you why you need this in your life right now in 7 short reasons:

 

1)Work won’t be able to contact you and you won’t be able to check in on work. We all know that the pull of work can sometimes be all-too-alluring like ‘let me quickly send this email’ or ‘let me quickly fill out this form online’ but the truth of the matter is you need time away from work every now and then.

 

2)All your attention will be focused on the moment and those around you. The best way to connect with someone to spend one-on-one time with them experiencing something new because that’s an experience that you as a couple or you as a family or friends can take with you forever.

 

3)There’s no social media so you actually be social.

 

4)Instead of focusing on what pictures you can post on Instagram or Facebook or Twitter you can actually look at the animals and make a real connection with them away from a screen. Sometimes these platforms that are meant to help us express ourselves or capture a moment can end up delaying your gratification within the moment. Without them you can immerse yourselves fully in the interaction with these beasts of the South African wild.

 

5)You can rest easy knowing that you’re safe and everything is taken care of for you, there’s no traffic to sit in or meeting to rush to.

 

6)You can get some perspective on your busy life in the city/another country and think about what’s really important.

 

7)You can sleep better than you ever have before: there is nothing like the sleep you get in the Karoo.
