On days with inclement weather, you could cosy up next to the fireplace and choose from a large selection of digital magazines and newspapers to read, or perhaps a puzzle or board game is more up your alley.

They can also arrange a qualified private instructor to guide you through a quiet, low-impact exercise routine – the perfect way to start off a day in Johannesburg.
