Families can escape the winter chill with the Winter Sizzler Hotel Package for only R500 per person per night at the 3-star Peermont Metcourt hotel and enjoy a complimentary breakfast and dinner at the Umoja Bistro. This package ending on 14 August, allows guests to unwind and warm up this season with a special breakaway to the resort.
