Dear Amanda

I would just like to say thank you for the great evening we had at “Zonki” on the 12th October. Everyone was impressed and our day ended off on a high note at Ekudeni. Food was excellent and the venue and your staff were great.

The teambuilding session was enjoyed by all, even though they were very tired by the end of the day.

I will have no hesitation in recommending your venue to all my friends.

Thanks again for contributing to the success of our “Amazing Race”.

Hi Amanda and staff

I would just like to convey my sincere thanks for making our Bosberaad so pleasant.   Everyone went out of their way to accommodate our needs.  Our every wish was met and delivered with a smile.  The food was great with lovely veggies and our special requests were willingly met.  We all enjoyed our evening in the Shebeen, if it wasn’t for the 06.30 start the next morning we would have enjoyed it for longer!  The rooms were well appointed and clean.  The grounds are lovely and the sound of birdsong first thing in the morning a delight.

Thank you once again.

Morning Amanda

Wow! What a weekend. I just had to thank you and the staff at Ekudeni for pulling off an awesome event.
Working with you from the outset was effortless. You accommodated the many changes with ease and managed the entire process with sterling results.

Please thank your staff who were friendly, efficient and proactive. The food was also a treat. By the way, in our industry we often get served potatoe salad and there is always some issue with getting it right. Needless to say our crew especially enjoyed the your potatoe salad saying ‘finally somebody got it right’.

The atmosphere, the property and accommodation was full of character and of a great standard.

Over all you guys are tops! We all rate you best!

Again, thank you. I eagerly look forward to making use of your services soon.

Best regards

Ek weet dis nou al ‘n hele 5 weke na die geleentheid, maar ek  wil graag net vir jou sé hoe ongelooflik beindruk ons was met julle diens op die dag van Sanet en Wessel se troue!
Baie, baie dankie vir al jul hulp om hierdie spesiale dag van my kind nog meer spesiaal te maak.  Ons gaste kon nie uitgepraat raak oor die pragtige “venue” nie en almal was hoogs beindruk met die heerlike kos wat bedien is, asook die feit dat daar so baie was om te eet! Die twee assistente wat heeldag betrokke was as ook die kelners het hulle baie goed van hul taak gekwyt.

Nogmaals baie dankie!
Mag julle geseen wees in die toekoms met reuse sukses.

Vriendelike groete
Daleen Herselman


Dear Andre, Amanda and team

A very BIG heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you for making our Bosberaad such a great success and memorable experience.  Our delegates had a great time at Ekudeni!

You made us feel as nothing was too much of trouble or effort for our group and you assisted when and wherever we needed.  The food was delectable, the accommodation was great, the teambuilding fantastic and all your staff was helpful and friendly.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  We now know why you have groups coming back time after time to Ekudeni.

With warm regards


Liewe Andre, Amanda en alle ander personeel van Ekudeni:

Ons wil julle graag net weer bedank vir ‘n onvergeetlike “boemelaar” troue! Dit was presies soos ons dit wou he, en selfs beter. Julle was van die begin af baie oop vir ons ongewone idees en het uit julle pad uit gegaan om by ons tema in te pas. Julle het selfs die lapa langs die shebeen gebou sodat ons die seremonie daar kon hou, en Amanda het spesiaal moeite gedoen om ‘n voorgereggie in ‘n boemelaar “knapsakkie” te bedien.

Ek het van geen probleme gehoor of geweet op die dag van my troue nie en was so ontspanne in die pragtige kamer wat julle vir ons voorsien het. Alles wat ek nodig gehad het was daar.

Die kos was stunning gewees – ek kon nie eers van alles proe nie, en julle het selfs items bygesit wat ons nie eers voor gevra het nie. Die potjiekos sal ek vir enige iemand aanbeveel – daar was hope vleis in, en dit was heerlik. Die gevulde hoenderborsies het gesmelt in ‘n mens se mond – kan ek asb. die resep kry? Almal het net komplimente gehad vir die kos – ek het nie eers een klagte gehoor nie. Ek weet van een persoon wat sommer 3 keer gaan skep het – so daar was ook oorgenoeg kos gewees.

Die kroeg was goed uitgerus en almal kon bestel wat hul wou drink.

Toe ons uiteindelik by ons kamer uitkom na die troue (ons het te lekker gekuier ons wou nie gaan slaap het nie), was dit pragtig voorberei vir ons – en die bottel sjampanje was nog lekker koud gewees.

Ons sal enige tyd mense na julle toe verwys – almal se vir ons dit was die lekkerste en beste troue waar hulle nog OOIT was!

Hi Amanda

I just wanted to let you know that the whole team really enjoyed Ekudeni.

Thanks to your chef for the meals – we really enjoyed the food.

Thanks to your staff for arranging everything for us, setting up the room, seeing that we had treats at tea times and even delivering special orders of hot chocolate and always with such a willing attitude.
