If you are tired of hotels when you travel maybe it is time you spiced up your stays with some unique accommodation ideas that will make your trip more memorable. Make note of any interesting hotels you come across while surfing the Internet or watching travel channels on television. While travelling pick up any brochures of unique accommodations you find. Many times a hotel lobby will be filled with these little brochures all arranged in a nice little display rack.

Also consider staying at a Bed and Breakfast. This kind of accommodation is becoming increasingly popular as
each one provides a unique
experience over any standard hotel chain. From quiet often charming rooms to
great homemade food these are many times cheaper than regular hotels. My favourite accommodation sites are
travelground.com and safarinow.com where you can select among self-catering,
bed and breakfast and hotels. You could also check out the discount offerings
at booking.com where you will find a unique selection of all kinds of accommodation that have been personally rated
by guests from all over the world.
When a friend of mine goes on vacations he looks for homes or flats for rent. This can be a great idea if you are travelling with your family as you get all the comforts of home and can save money by cooking your own meals. Many people will do a house swap with you as well, but if you happen to live in a spot that might not be very popular with
travellers it could be
hard finding someone to swap with you.
Are you more into backpacking? You might consider staying at a youth hostel during your stay in South Africa. Many have a dormitory arrangement with shared baths and kitchens, but they can be quite inexpensive and you get a great opportunity to meet some interesting people. Just be sure to use a little common sense if you plan on staying in a group environment. A credible site is hostels.com where you will have a wide range of selection of
hostels throughout South
These are just a few of the many options available to the
traveller to South Africa looking for a little more adventure. Keep your eyes
and your mind open to new possibilities and you will be rewarded with rich
memories for years to come.
