The whole of December 2017 was festive and relaxed. The highlight was on New Years Eve (31 December 2017) where an  an outstanding performance was given by Paschira Zangari.

The annual Oscar nominations were also done on new year eve in true Mafia style and followeed by the spectacular fire works on the mountain.



On Christmas day, the usual lunch with tables loaded with the finest of the finest. A big thanks to Tommie, Gideon, David, Theuns, Edemo, Klifford, Israel, Paul, Paul, Glenn, Patsie, Tom, Lionell and Elvis for all the hard work, preparations and cleaning.


Friends were festively together, enjoying the meal and remembering those who are far away, or not with us anymore .



The annual Mr Voëlkop (25 November 2017) was once again a red carpet event in style of "Men At Work". A big thanks to Martin for the hard work to get everything in place.



The 25 year old Jacques Burger is the new Mr Voëlkop 2018. He is from Roodepoort and over and above his full time work in education (Social Science), he plans to  support Voëlkop during the year by visiting as frequent as possible, spread the word about the Guest Farm and if at all possible, be present at the events through the year.


German Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on 12th October 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. We here at Voëlkop continue this tradition and combining it with Halloween, a party to be seen at !
