Andante Lodge accommodated Reunion guests Jacques Lamy and his family during their visit to South Africa and particularly during their Pretoria / Gauteng leg of their visit. We were spoilt with gifts from Reunion (fresh passion fruit and a very delicious liqueur made in Reunion). Immediately we felt as if we’ve been friends with them for a long time and fully enjoyed having them as guests. Jacques enjoyed staying so close to most attractions such as Soweto, Pretoria central and the major shopping malls such as Menlyn Mall. He mainly used taxis to easily commute between Andante Lodge and wherever they were going and once had a worrying experience when taxis couldn’t be reached from a remote location. Eventually they made it back home and could relax in our Pretoria East accommodation.
Jacques Lamy and his family joined a Christmas party we held for a less privileged orphanage. We are glad they could also experience an event like this, it’s something not normally done by international tourists but enjoyed by all.
Jacques, we hope to see you and your family again whenever you visit South Africa!
