Kick Start

award after award!

The prestigious annual RCI OSCAS Awards Ceremony was held in March and as can be expected, VRS once again walked away with the most awards. The everyday perseverance and pursuit of excellence of each and every QVC Resort has led to these amazing accolades. One QVC Resort even walked away with Diamond status – the highest RCI achievement possible.

(Recipe adapted from Café Delights:

We’ve touched on a few African Blessings causes before, but this time we’d like to invite you to really get involved.

Donations of cash and kind, or time and energy are of course always welcome! But there are some specific projects that need your help. This is how Bonus Breaks with a Cause came to be.

For every Bonus Break booked, LVC donates R 99 to specific African Blessings causes. Money raised will be reserved for this specific purpose and we can’t wait to tell you about all the exciting happenings that are made possible by the money raised.

For these kiddies and critters, each R99 donation goes towards supporting basic needs. The need for safety and security, the need for food and water, the need for learning experiences, and the need to be loved and cared for.
  The Early Learning Centre which provides education, nurturing and care and impacts the lives of kids between the ages of 0 and 6.
  The Food Gardens which helps to support neighboring communities who are in need.
  Driving Dreams – a 34-seater bus is needed to transport the kiddies to excursions, transport donated goods received, and assist the people in the community with transport.
  The Community Critter Care Initiative – each and every animal deserves love and the right to be protected. African Blessings works in the communities to provide basic medical treatment and implement preventative measures. Food, bowls, collars and blankets are also made available to pet owners and owners are educated on how to look after their critters.
  The well-being of donkeys and horses in these areas.


Please Remember that your accounts need to be in good standing before you can make a reservation.
