In light of the current nationwide lockdown and the fact that public gatherings had to be cancelled, our annual Easter feast in the Barn won't be happening this year.

But we don't want that to mean that there's no Easter fun for you and the fam. We've therefore put together a little Old Mac Daddy Airstream Trailer Easter Egg Hunt..

โ–บ In each of the 4 Old Mac Daddy trailer suites below we've hidden a single Easter egg.

โ–บ If you can find all of them, we'll reward you with the following prizes:


We'll also do a lucky draw on Easter Monday (13th April 2020) for one entry to win a FREE 1-night midweek stay, including breakfast and free activities.

To enter and win EMAIL YOUR ANSWERS TO US (reservations@oldmacdaddy.co.za), meaning in your mail tell us exactly where in each photo you find the egg.
That's it!
