Just in:

Last week my Husband & I spent four nights at Drakensberg Sun which you booked for us in July last year.

We would like to express our thanks to you for your friendly and efficient way in making the booking for us and to SAARP for this incredible benefit we enjoy as members of SAARP.

Drakensberg Sun was brilliant! Our one bedroomed unit - which was impeccable - was on the top floor with the most beautiful view over perfectly manicured gardens, the lake and the mountains.

We enjoyed fabulous hikes, boat rides on the lake and the entertainment provided by the resort.

Thank you so much SAARP for making a holiday like this so enjoyable for us. We appreciate it greatly.

Our Best Wishes to all at SAARP.

(And this cost them R1,425 for five days - A Winteris Price)
