Christmas Events in the Lowveld

By Focus Online Dev on November 14, 2019

Decorations are popping up all around us, the weather is getting warmer and wetter, the cicadas are getting louder, and for us in the Lowveld this can only mean one thing – Christmas is almost here.

Although Christmas in South Africa has many differences from Christmas in the rest of the world, the celebrations and festive spirit are quite the same.

If you’re spending Christmas in the Lowveld this year, you’ll definitely want to know about some of the best Hazyview Christmas events on offer in 2019.

For those visiting Hazyview over the Christmas period, Hippo Hollow’s Christmas Lunch might be a more convenient offering.

Hippo Hollow Restaurant will be hosting lunch and dinner 25 December featuring a harvest table, salads, soups and starters, roast turkey, leg of lamb, honey glazed gammon, a curry station and dessert buffet.

We don’t think you’ll be able to resist the Amarula malva pudding, the spiced apple crumble and the Top Deck chocolate mousse.
