The other day our team sat down to browse through some of the amazing photographs we have amassed at Morukuru Family. Those snaps guests have so generously shared with us. Pictures taken by professional photographers visiting our properties and images captured by our staff. We quickly noticed a strong, common thread. So many of the best and most arresting photos are taken either at sunrise or sunset. This is evidence that these are the times of day which resonate most deeply with visitors to our properties. Munia Khan is a poet who has been widely published in several anthologies, literary journals, magazines and newspapers and her words capture these special opportunities perfectly: “Dawn and dusk are mutual friends of the sun; one opens the door for him to a brand new day and the other one has to shut it to embrace the darkness of night.” Sunrise and sunset are magical experienced under African skies and both naturally segue into opportunities to celebrate with food and drink; whether bush sundowners against a burning orange backdrop, a coastal breakfast embraced by a fresh sea breeze or or a celebratory Jozi dinner under iconic Jacarandas and the moon. We share some of our most favourite entertaining experiences from our collection of properties. We hope you enjoy this visual feast!
PS: For those wanting a taste of our special occasions why not join us for one or our upcoming celebrations at AtholPlace Hotel & Villa on Christmas and New Years Eve.
