Mzansi’s favourite chef, Lorna Maseko, has been travelling the world since the age of 16. Her travels started when she became South Africa’s first black principal ballet dancer which took her around the globe. Her time as a presenter on Top Billing also afforded her the opportunity to visit many exotic locations and lavish destinations around the world. With December holidays fast approaching, who better to give advice on your plans than the jet-setter Lorna Maseko. Below are Lorna’s recommendations and tips on having an unforgettable holiday this December.
What is the best destination to visit this December?
I haven’t quite decided what to do this December, but I know I want to be somewhere warm. Dubai seems like the best option because it’s close and you have the best of both worlds - sun, shopping and relaxation. Although I’ve been there before, visiting again would be [awesome].
What is the best international destination at the moment to visit, and why?
I’ve fallen in love with London again. I absolutely love the city, in the summer, of course. I also love Hong Kong - it’s almost like all the economies of the world meet there. You can find food from around the world and shop your heart out.
Best local hidden gem?
Magoebaskloof is so gorgeous. I drove down there a few weeks back and literally got out my car to take pictures. South Africa is a beautiful country and I think people should explore before travelling outside of the country. We have such a gem of a country and the continent that has so much to offer.
