Widely known for her roles on Isidingo and Harvest, Khanya Mkangisa is an actress and DJ that has already enjoyed a long career in entertainment. We joined her and close family member Zanele Makala for a day of relaxation at The Houghton Hotel.
The lifestyle resort in suburban Johannesburg offers a 5-star deluxe experience, is equipped with a full gym and health and beauty spa, as well as four heated swimming pools. Making it the perfect destination for the occasion.
“It’s my first time at The Houghton Hotel. I’ve been seeing it on social media and have been wanting to come here so I’m looking forward to the activities, and the spa as I can really use some down time,” comments Khanya.

First up was the hotel’s FitBar for an invigorating wellness session with personal trainer Claude Ndeko who understands the importance of exercise to a holistic lifestyle.
Following the workout, cousin and dear friend Zanele joined in for a de-stressing session at the spa, which included a glorious self heating lava shell massage.
“Self care is extremely important. We work such hectic hours, and now as a DJ, I have call times in the morning for acting and then in the evening I’ll have a gig to DJ – so you definitely have to take some time out for yourself when you do get the chance. It’s not only good physically, but mentally it does a lot for you too,” believes the star.
For many, family members are also dear friends. This is certainly true for Khanya and Zanele who have learned so much from one another, and continue to inspire each other.
“You can’t keep a good woman down. Khanya has been in this industry for over a decade and she’s remained relevant because she doesn’t allow anything to get her down for too long. She’s a fighter and I love her for that,” says Zanele.
The privilege of great friendships, a driven spirit and willingness to always learn, is sure to see Khanya Mkangisa enjoying many more years entertaining South Africa.
