SAARP exisits to assist you in many areas - here is one of them 

A few weeks ago I wrote inquiring about how we go about making a new will and you very kindly put us in touch with Matthee Attorneys in Louvenstein.

They contacted us promptly and arranged a meeting to discuss the will and Mr. Matthee very patiently explained things to us that we never would have thought of. There is a lot more to the business than we thought. The meeting was very productive and we would recommend the firm to all our friends.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter

Kind regards, John and Mel Cross. 


SAARP also provides for more carefree times 

Good day Renske

We were at Cayley Lodge from Monday to Friday and were very impressed with this lodge. The views were magnificent & there is so much to see & do in that area.

We were also able to see the Drakensberg Boys Choir. Those Boys are wonderful, we really enjoyed the show. This school is also very close to Cayley Lodge.

Thank you very much for the trouble you went to in selecting this Lodge, it was really worth it.

To you & your colleagues please keep up the good work, it is very much appreciated.

Kind regards, Volker & Carlene Baume
