We had a super time at Afri-Ski. Stayed at Bagpackers (ed: backpackers?) with my wife and daughter. The atmosphere there was great; all got on well which is a lucky draw. The staff at the accommodation were efficient and friendly. The same can be said at the slope and ski rental place. Unfortunately, due to extreme strong winds +_ 60 km/hr the main ski lift could not operate for 2 days.
I think it is fantastic to have skiing available in Africa, within a five hr drive from Johannesburg.
