Mrs South Africa
What a dazzling show! Legacy Hotels & Resorts are proud to have been one of the sponsors for The Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa 2020 Grand Finale that took place on the 8th of November 2019, at Emperor’s Palace in the City of Ekurhuleni. The glitzy production featured top South Africa designers, African superstar Lady Zamar and Katlego Maboe as the MC of the night.
Mrs SA may sound like a beauty pageant, but its initiatives make it much more than that. It is a female empowerment movement that encourages women from all walks of life to enter the pageant; celebrating real South African women and the spirit of Ubuntu. Mrs SA does away with ideals that do not match real women, to instead showcase true beauty that shines from within and celebrate every woman and her unique femininity – Her Legacy.
This is why Legacy Hotels and Resorts wanted to get involved; Mrs SA promotes a message that Legacy supports. Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge, or "Place of the Rock" in the Pilanesberg, were the proud sponsors of this year’s Mrs SA Lifestyle Challenge, a weekend of fabulosity where the top 25 Finalists took part in challenges to create fun, relatable content for various media channels. Taking care of their every need, Kwa Maritane sponsored the Finalists with accommodation, conference facilities, game drives, a boma dinner, other food and beverage requirements, not to mention the perfect African backdrop.
2018’s Mrs World Alice Lee Gianetta, who travelled here from Hong Kong to be a judge for the Mrs SA pageant, was also hosted by Kwa Maritane after the Finale. She had only lovely things to say about Kwa Maritane and took gorgeous images, that showed off her natural radiance.
Jaqueline Ferns, from Polokwane in Limpopo, was the deserving winner of the pageant. A bronze beauty, she was crowned our new Mrs South Africa and Mrs Charity. This enriching woman will now represent us, and we could not be more delighted. As winner, Kwa Maritane has gifted her another weekend away at their enchanting lodge. Her joy of being in this exciting location shone through her smiles.
