Saying goodbye to someone is always hard, especially if that person has been part of a winning team for many years. Parting ways are then difficult and emotional. Kapama River Lodge staff were all very sad to say farewell to a wonderful old gem who has been a member of staff for just over nine years.

Johannes Sibuyi, a waiter at River Lodge, recently celebrated his 60th birthday. He decided that the time had come to spend the gentle years of his life in retirement. Many guests to Kapama River Lodge may well remember Johannes, if they were lucky enough to have him as their waiter.

The staff at River Lodge came together to thank him and wish him well for the years ahead. Johannes will be remembered for his big friendly smile, dance moves, and positive involvement -especially at the Christmas Party’s held for the children of the staff working at Kapama. Johannes, always showed kindness and consideration to all. Johannes leaves as a respected friend – always welcome and never forgotten.
