The best thing about a European winter isn’t the snow – it’s being able to celebrate Christmas in the middle of it. That’s one advantage we don’t have here in South Africa – unless of course you join us for Christmas in July. Watch this space for details of our festive feast, and be sure to book early so that you can be present. We’d hate for you to get left out in the cold!
