Lourensford Wine Estate

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us at the Cape Getaway Show this year. We hope you had a wonderful time and walked away with some great deals. There were loads of vouchers and travel prizes up for grabs too, so if you were a winner congratulations!

The lucky Mr. and Mrs. Kruger walked away with our grand prize – an all-inclusive, luxury holiday for two to the Melia Zanzibar, with Discover Zanzibar, worth R100000. Even we here at Getaway were jealous.
