It was a spectacularly cold morning (02 July 2018) as snowflakes descended on the 10 000 hectare Big 5 conservancy for the first time in 10 years. This rare occasion was enjoyed by all guests – who ran out to experience the snow (in many cases the first time in their lives) – as well as all Aquila staff.
International celebrity chef Sibahle Mtongana, also had her first snow experience at Aquila. She posted on her Instagram page that, “Our family holiday was so surreal with this surprise gift from nature… we were so SNOWED UNDER… this time not from work, but from fun with the squad😝😅….. our first time experiencing full on snow as a family in our own country! ♥️⛄️”
