Year End Function Venues

Book One of the Finest Year-End Function Venues – SunWa River Lodge


We’re counting down the weeks and there aren’t many left. The year has flown by and now is the time to treat the ones who have been instrumental in taking your business to new heights – your employees.


To Staff Party or Not to Staff Party


Given the state of the economy in South Africa, many businesses question whether it is appropriate to splash out on a year-end function during such a time, but the truth is that your employees deserve it. Many successful entrepreneurs understand the importance of a year-end function. A year-end function means so much more than just toasting to a “Better New Year’”, it is also a fantastic opportunity to express gratitude, create a sense of camaraderie, boost morale, and build team spirit.


If you’re one of the many great entrepreneurs who recognises that your business’s success is a direct result of the people working for you, then you already know that a year-end function is absolutely essential. With your employees spending a great deal of their time at the office, this is a great opportunity for them to relax, release office tension, and break away from their responsibilities in a fun and relaxed environment.


A Breathtaking Retreat that Overlooks the Tranquil Waters of the Vaal River


If you’re keen to take the lead in making your year-end function an event everyone will remember, then you might want to book one of the finest function venues on offer – SunWa River Lodge.
