Dear Mister Richter,
I am late writing you as promised but it is the opportunity to wish you a merry Christmas and my best wishes for the new year.
The third wedding at Thabaphaswa, that of Ben and Liané Marais took place recently in our Lapa. The bride wanted a bushveld wedding and had specific ideas about the decor and ceremony.
She made use of grass bales, wood stumps and dead trees and dry arrangements using natural bushveld material which had to be made some time before the event. Our staff gladly assisted.
Liané's creativity made our lapa even more inviting and we are honoured that she chose us as her venue of choice.
Due to popular demand we have extended catering, that was done for overseas groups, to our local tourists.
We offer Breakfast, A South African braai as well as a South African braai accompanied by traditional dishes, served by women from the surrounding communities.
We are proud! A son of one of the Thabaphaswa Nguni bulls made the front page of Farmer's Weekly (2 Sep 2016) in an article about a farmer who uses the Nguni in cross-breeding to improve dual purpose traits in his animals.
My name is Tilmann Hartmann. We were the group of young climbers from Saxony-Germany who visited Thabaphaswa from the 11 July till 13 of July 2015. On the 13 of July we were able to establish a new route on the Kanniedood.

This nice climb starts a few meters to the right of the route "My Big Toe". There are some run outs in this route.
