Rotary Christmas Market at Elephant Springs

rot01The annual Christmas Market of the local Rotary Warmbaths Club in Bela Bela opened its doors for the first time at Elephant Springs this holiday season.  The event took place from 13 – 23 December 2013.

This annual superb event brings together crafters and exhibitors from all around the country.  From home baked rusks to unique ornaments, the market has it all.

Thank you to everybody for supporting this worthy cause hosted by the local Rotarians.  Proceeds from the event will be used to support charity projects in the immediate surroundings of Bela Bela.

Rest in peace Madiba

0mandelaIt is with a great sadness in our hearts that we say goodbye to Tata Madiba, Mr Nelson Mandela.  Regarded as the father of our nation, and held in high esteem by all at South of Africa, our entire family is mourning the loss of this great leader.

As a symbol of our respect, all flags are flying half-mast.  Old President Mandela played a major role in the development of our country, and he will be sadly missed by all.  Elephant Springs Hotel recently received a visit from Mr Mandla Mandela, grandson of the beloved icon.

Rest in peace Nelson Mandela.  With love, from all at South of Africa.

Introducing Facebook videos

South of Africa’s social media platform on Facebook and Twitter have recently been treated to the publication of various video snippets from our properties.  If a picture speaks a thousand words, then a video would be a million.

Our followers on Twitter and likes on Facebook have been spoiled with videos of the fantastic wildlife at Birdsong Cottages, the jolly staff at Shangri-La (who is giving their own renditions of “We wish you a Merry Xmas”) and the resident birdlife at the Cabanas of Elephant Springs.

We have several more videos on the way.  Go and like our pages today and share these short clips with your friends and family.  We also invite all our guests to submit their video clips taken at our portfolio to socialmedia@southofafrica.com.
