Nearly exactly 1 year after the kick off of the Soccer World Cup 2010, Abangane Guest Lodge had the pleasure to host Siphiwe Tshabalala (WC National Team/Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs) and friends, Yeye Letsholonyane (WC National Team/Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs), Jimmy Tau (Kaizer Chiefs) and Morgan Gould (Bafana Bafana and Supersport United) for a 2 nights stay.
The region had many different brands and names, which was rather confusing. There was a need for a strong regional identity and brand and so it was decided to merge the areas known as The Wild Frontier, Lowveld Legogote and The Panorama (this area is also known as The Lowveld / Ehlanzeni District). It was also agreed that the Kruger National Park and surrounding private reserves forms a large and important part of our destination and need to be included in the brand. After a long and thorough consultation process with all the stakeholders in the region, our own regional brand was created.
Cape Town glistens at the southern toe of the African continent. Tourist brochure-views at Blaauwberg Beach and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens are within easy driving distance of “The Mother City.” The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve provides sweeping sea vistas, hiking trails and wildlife encounters. On a more somber note, travelers can visit Robben Island, the prison where Nelson Mandela was held for 27 years.
