Darren and I will host a very casual braai at our home the afternoon of December 18th. All are welcome...
We will provide the food, but please bring a beverage or dessert to share!
Most out-of-town guests will be arriving on this day. Please come over and we will figure out transportation back to the hotel (City Lodge) after the braai...
**Please note, accommodation at Leopard's Lodge is fully booked with the wedding party and friends/family flying here from overseas. However, we have made alternate arrangements with two venues within a 5-minute drive!
Cradle Health Spa
Die Ou Pastorie
And if you'd rather make alternate arrangements, there is an abundance of accommodation in the area:
Our wedding will be held at the stunningly beautiful Leopard Lodge in Hartebeesport. This 248 hectare property abounds with bird life including the third largest breeding colony of the endangered Cape Griffon Vulture. Resident game includes Giraffe, Kudu, Blesbuck, Impala, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Bushbuck, Warthog, Nyala and Zebra. Leopards are very scarce but have been sighted occasionally, mainly at night.
CASH BAR - Please bring extra money if you plan to drink that evening!
