As we look back at the past six months, we can't help but feel grateful for all the incredible moments and milestones we've achieved in the first half of 2023. Barbara Bush once said, "Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success is how you treat other people." At Manzi Monaté, we've taken this to heart, and it has now become a driving factor for how we conduct ourselves and everything that we do at the Resort.

From exciting upgrades and new additions to the Team, to heart-warming and unforgettable memories created by our guests, it has been a busy and fulfilling six months for our Manzi Monaté community. Our dedicated Team and staff have gone above and beyond to ensure Manzi Magic stays alive and it is with great pleasure that we share with you, our beloved Shareholders, all that has been going on at your home-away-from-home.

Our animal farm has been buzzing with activity and our animals continue to steal many of our guests’ hearts. From adorable new residents to our cheeky donkeys’ mischievous antics, there is never a dull moment on the Manzi Monaté Animal Farm.

Rabbits

We recently acquired three adorable baby rabbits for our animal farm, which have quickly become a popular attraction for children who enjoy feeding and admiring them. Unfortunately, shortly after their arrival, elderly rabbit passed away, leaving the new additions without their senior companion.

Jabu and Sophie

Jabu and Sophie remain the shining stars of the animal farm, and they absolutely love roaming around the premises. Without fail, they will bray nonstop until they are let out to frolic freely. Their curious nature has even forced us to take precautions to safeguard our new flower beds from their playful antics, but despite their rascal ways, we can't help but adore them.

We've been hard at work making your experience even better, and we're thrilled to share all the latest and greatest improvements. Here are some exciting updates and upgrades that have occurred in the last six months:

Christmas

Our Christmas celebration was a blast, with a range of activities catering to all ages! Our Team entertained the children who were visiting with sack races, pool games, and hula hoop competitions, and families got involved with some friendly competition, from Bingo and mini-golf to the exciting "Minute to Win It" challenges. The entertainment area in front of the Kiosk, complete with our braai facilities, was the perfect hub for our festivities. Happy, our entertainment persona, was true to his name and kept everyone entertained with music and laughter. To round out our celebrations, we also started singing Christmas carols. The festive spirit was truly lingering throughout the Resort.

Valentine’s Day

Love was in the air this Valentine's Day at our Resort! To spread the love, we organised an exciting raffle where every guest received a ticket upon arrival at check-in. The lucky winners of each raffle, one for Friday check-ins and another for Monday arrivals, were presented with a lovely surprise: a bottle of bubbly for him and a gorgeous floral bouquet for her; perfect for very a romantic evening. The raffle was drawn on Valentine's Day, and to add to the V-Day cheer, our staff donned festive red and white attire.

Easter Weekend

Despite a minor setback, our Easter long weekend was a resounding success! Unfortunately, we experienced an unexpected power failure caused by pylons that had collapsed. However, we didn't let that dampen our spirits and quickly sprang into action, providing boiling water for our guests to enjoy a warm cuppa and even offering pap and sauce to complement their mouth-watering braais. Our Easter celebration was filled with delightful entertainment, including fun arts and crafts to engage the young ones visiting us. Our talented cook, Anna, prepared some scrumptious vetkoek and cupcakes, complemented by an array of refreshing drinks for guests to enjoy upon check-in.

The housekeeping team went above and beyond to make our guests feel extra special, adding a touch of Easter flair by making origami swans and flowers with towels and placing them on the beds with Easter eggs.

Mother’s Day

Moms are superheroes, constantly taking care of everyone around them. However, it's important for them to take a moment and indulge in some self-pampering. That's why, on Mother's Day, we made sure to treat the mothers visiting us with a fragrant bottle of bubble bath to enhance their well-deserved pamper days. To create a special atmosphere for our lovely moms, the Reception area was beautifully decorated in pink and purple. As our guests checked in, we warmly welcomed them with bookmarks, along with delicious cupcakes and refreshing juice to enjoy. The Kiosk also offered a selection of lovely Mother's Day gifts, allowing guests to purchase the perfect token of appreciation for their wonderful moms.
