Secret Masquerade


The Secret Masquerade is a charity gala in support of the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre taking place across South Africa throughout 2016.

The first gala was held at Katy’s last Friday. Our palace was transformed into an African masquerade complete with fire breathers, African dancers, a stilt walker and our incredible musical headliner Tresor!

A huge thank you to our partner Secret Eats  and all who attended – the event raised over R36,000 for the centre.

Here’s a peak into the Secret Eats Murder Mystery dinner and Secret Masquerade!

Mexican Fiesta | Katy’s Sunday Lunch

We couldn’t help dancing off our Corona, tacos, chili con carne and lamb barbacoa when Tona (possibly the world’s greatest Mariachi band) started playing.

If you missed out, or if you joined in, it’s time to rewind into our Mexican Fiesta!
