C3. Customer
Firewood is provided, sourced from the alien cleaning projects. Outside braais and Jacuzzis are installed on most stoeps. This alleviates loadshedding.

There is a clear induction and written procedure, including emergency telephone numbers, which are communicated on arrival. An info file is available in the rooms.

C4. Company
The covid lockdown gave the business a financial knock and recently some serious damages were done by this year’s winter floods of the Grootrivier. Roads, parking and picnic sites were seriously damaged. Competent financial planning is in place. Sound management of money matters is obvious.
