A change of scenery is just what is needed to get you out of your work-related slump.
And, if you are fortunate enough to work remotely, then a workation (also spelt workcation) is an ideal way to continue your daily work tasks while you find time to explore a new destination.
Working remotely isn’t something new – digital nomads have been doing this for years. However, the pandemic has allowed more people to work in another setting, whether it’s a beach getaway, safari break or a city escape.
If you are curious about the workation trend and want to plan one , then our June 2021 edition of IOL Travel digital magazine has everything you need to get started.
We offer five easy steps to plan your work/explore trip and explore the wellness benefits of taking a workation.
If your trip is in South Africa, we feature workation-friendly hotels that offer a strong signal and super-fast fibre, among other attractive amenities.
We also list international countries perfect for out-of-office trips that boast some grand sights and activities. Clinton Moodley shares about his first workation trip at BlackBrick Sandton just over a month and a half ago.

He said the trip helped him become more calm and productive and it struck the perfect work/explore balance.
