What an incredible day we had here at Makanyi Lodge as we hosted 23 participant’s from Futuro’s Hospitality School based in Hluvukani, giving them the ultimate in 5-star guest experience.

The day began with the participants heading off on an exciting game drive through the Timbavati, whereby they got to experience some amazing animal encounters in their natural environment as well as enjoy coffee and tea in the African bush.
Upon arrival back at the lodge, they were greeted by our friendly staff members with warm towels to freshen up before heading through for a delicious breakfast prepared by our talented chefs.

Once they had finished breakfast, each of our various lodge departments gave informative presentations which allowed the participants the opportunity to ask questions about the in’s and out’s of the day to day activities.

The day was concluded by a final word from our human resource manager with templates provided by @wilddreamsrecruitment on how to present themselves at a job interview, guidelines for writing up a professional CV as well as other key aspects on a successful career.

It was a wonderful experience for both participants as well as our staff members. We are grateful that we could be part of this amazing initiative and we wish all the participants the very best in their future endeavors.

Below are some of the moments we captured during the day:
