Holiday Review

29 April 2014. 'My sister and I went to “Plett” in April 2012, as a treat for her birthday which was mid- April. We flew in to George and hired a metered taxi to Plett and stayed at Castellton, Knysna. Since the drive was a long one, we saw how beautiful that part of the country was. We had a lovely few days there dining, lazing at the beach and eating out in the beach restaurants and playing tennis. Our one regret was that we didn’t go together with our other two siblings whose young children would have had a good time in that part of the country.' Dorothy Mazingi
