Hi, I’m Sonia Grobler from Bag End Guest House in Carlswald, Midrand.

CARLSWALD IS BEST KNOWN FOR its country feeling, big plots, bicycle and horse riders.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT with a lion cub at Lory Park Zoo.

THE BEST wedding PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT 64 Main rose garden.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT Papachinos Restaurant and MonteCasino.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO go for a walk.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO sit by the fire at Wild Olive Cafe.

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS spring, BECAUSE everything is green.
