The Gogos enjoy North West

29 Nov 2016

We think everyone should get to enjoy all that South Africa has to offer, most of all the wisest of our nation – the Gogos. The “Gogos on Tour” initiative aims to treat our senior citizens to some awesome experiences at various places across their province.

This week the lovely gogos from North West have been treated and delighted, this is what they got up to…


Hartbeespoort Aerial Cableway

The best views of Hartbeespoort were enjoyed by our special senior citizens on their first outing for the day when they visited the Hartbeespoort Aerial Cableway. The Harties Cableway offers visitors awesome views of the beautiful Magaliesberg, Hartbeespoort Dam and surrounding areas, as well as excellent recreational and educational facilities. It is great for families; kids can wander along the Dassie Loop walkway, or play in the KidZone. Restaurants, express food stalls and a bar are all on site for you to enjoy while making use of the picturesque seating areas and bomas.

Rates: Adults R195 / Children 4-14 R115 / Children under 4 free

Pamper session with Mangwanai Spa in Sun City

Nothing beats a pamper session while you are away on holiday, which is exactly what our gogos were treated to after their exciting morning of game viewing. The Mangwanani Spa visited our gogos while at Sun City and is a wellness retreat which offers true head-to-toe indulgences. After much pampering, lunch at Sun City’s Mosteng Shebeen was enjoyed.

We truly hope the gogos enjoyed their experience and realise that South Africa offers friendly service and activities which accommodate everyone, old and young.
