Escape frustration of load shedding

514

We all know that sinking feeling when Eskom announces load shedding for the day and two hours of no electricity looms ahead of you like a black tunnel.
While people try to make the most of the dark hours by playing board games or catching up on their reading by candle light or e-devices, sometimes you just want to escape the dark and find ways to combat the load shedding blues; especially when you have a special event planned that could be ruined by a lack of electricity.
Protea Hotel Ranch Resort
This winter you need not worry that the success of your conference, party, wedding or banquet is hanging in the balance when Eskom decides to switch off the lights.
Protea Hotel Ranch Resort is fully geared for load shedding during conferences and banquets, ensuring your event will be a hit.
The resort has established itself as a world class events venue over the years. They offer a wide range of unique venues that can accommodate up to 1 300 guests.
Whether you need a boardroom to do your annual business strategic planning, in the quiet of the Bushveld away from distractions, or a large function hall to host the social event of the year, Protea Hotel Ranch Resort has you covered.
This winter they are running a full day conference special at only R295 per delegate. Call them now on 015 290 5000 or send an email to banqueting@theranch.co.za to find out how they can give you peace of mind.
While you are there, make sure to make the most of Protea Hotel Ranch Resort’s other attractions like the Lion and Hyena Park, 25 species of antelope including the rare and endangered sable antelope, over 200 species of birds, and the Kolobe bush camp which includes team building facilities and accommodation ideal for groups up to 70 people.
You can also take a walk on the wild side and go for a ramble with their lions. This allows you to accompany lions in their natural habitat on foot for an hour and a half, under the guidance and supervision of experienced guides.
Protea Hotel Ranch Resort is sure to keep the load shedding blues at bay.
