Hanging clothing vs. folding clothing? One of the first steps in bringing order to a clothes closet is determining what should be hung on rods and what should be folded and stayed in shelves. Items to hang: linen & all cotton, slippery silks, pressed shirts, velvet, chiffon, rayon and taffeta. The rest to be folded: knitwear, a-line skirts, jeans, corduroys, scarves, underwear & work out clothes.

Etali Safari Lodge | Lodge Butler Training

Posted on: October 9th, 2015 by Butler Academy No Comments

Etali Safari Lodge receives incredible butler training. Etali is located in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Please take a look at our exciting hospitality butler training program conducted!





Ek wil net dankie se vir die voorreg om weer opleiding by Etali te kon ontvang.  Ek was huiwerig om iemand anders as Newton te kry om die opleiding te doen omdat dit werklik ’n groot impak op ons diens gemaak het toe jy met jou energie die opleiding kom doen het, maar Braam het werklik my verwagtinge oortref!


Die personeel het sy aanbiedinge baie geniet en die bevestiging van die teorie in die praktyk het ons ook soms laat lag en ander tye baie trots gemaak.  Met sy diep ervaringsveld het hy selfs vir Gert oortuig om te “shake” vir sy gaste op die rit wanneer daar ’n versoek vir ’n G&T is, en verder om die Federal Air Crew te ontvang met die volle Etali diens.  Dit dink ek het Gert definitief uit sy gemaksone geneem en na ’n bietjie redenasie het ons ingestem dat die vliegtuig nie ingewuif hoef te word nie.


Ek kan se dat die twee bemanning selfs nog met hulle vertrek op ’n wolkie was en hulle het my so plegtig bedank….thank you for having us.


Hulle het ook gese dat die ontvangs hulle verras het.  Die stop naby die fassilliteite en die tyd wat hulle gegun was om dit te gebruik het nie ongesiens verby gegaan nie en die welkom drankie het hulle uitgeboul! (die skoenborsel was nie eers uitgehaal nie so ek kan nie wag vir ’n gas met stof wat aandui dat dit gebruik kan word nie)

Ons besef die uitdaging is om dit so te hou en Angie en ek en Koos is besig met strategiee om dit nie net daar te hou nie, maar ook selfs met meer gemak daar te kry. Ek vertrou dat wanneer Braam terug kom hy ook verras sal wees.


Baie dankie weereens
