MISTY HILLS A GARDEN LABYRINTH
The meaning of Labyrinth, for those uninitiated, is that of "a complicated irregular network of passages or paths". The winding paths and dense brush, alludes to being on safari in Africa. One would expect a lion or witch to pop out the wardrobe at any time!
the bush was green and the surrounding countryside of Muldersdrift was just as lush. Muldersdrift is close enough to Johannesburg in South Africa to be a short drive away and far enough to feel like you have left the buzz of the city behind you and are heading into the countryside. Early in April, we (the Nomad team) made our way to Misty Hills for an overnight conference.
The hotel is easily accessed from both the N14 freeway from Pretoria and Kurgersdorp as well as Beyers Naude ,which comes in from the South of the city. Well signposted and easy to find on the GPS and local Google Maps. As soon as we entered, there was a security checkpoint, which is critical in our society today to make sure that guests feel safe and secure. We made our way to the new and refurbished reception area. The high ceilings and well-appointed reception desk was a welcoming sight and the gorgeous feel of being on safari washed over us as we approached the reception area. We were greeted by friendly staff and were taken to the Zebra Room, which was to be our conference room for the day. We followed the winding path to the conference area and were greeted by a friendly smile, coffee and various treats. The toilets were well placed between a number of conference rooms and the soft sound of the indoor waterfall nearby was enough to put us to sleep! We made our way to the breakfast room where we had a long discussion with the chef about the various types of eggs used to make an omelette. With loads of breakfast choices and a well laid out, we had full tummies when we started our conference. The muffins had to wait till lunchtime. The room we had for our conference was well lit, had enough power outlets for our range of laptops and all the equipment we needed was on hand and easy to get up and running. Having a problem with the overhead was no trouble at all for the staff who arrived promptly to sort it out
