Great people, great music. South Africa has a chequered history in terms of race issues. Here music has broken down the barriers. The qujality of music is excellent.

This review isn't going to tell you about how Barry will drive miles to collect you, how Sissy and Barry welcome you into their home as honoured guests, how they provide a home cooked SA meal and wine, and how Sissy and the young people Barry is training will then entertain you, because other people have already said all this...

This review is late in coming as we have only returned from S.A. two weeks ago. My husband and I returned here again after such an enjoyable evening there last year. We were so happy that we did! We were warmly greeted by Barry and Sissy. Barry will collect you from a local hotel, take you into their home and... More

Our B&B host recommended 'Magic Moments' and booked us in. We had no idea what to expect but we were so glad we had the opportunity to experience an evening of entertainment by Sissy, Barry and Simphiwe. Barry very kindly picked us up from our B&B and dropped us back again. The other guests were already enjoying a pre dinner... More

We had initially booked for a Friday night but changed to Saturday at the last minute. We had a great night with Barry and Sissy and were made to feel completely at home. We had great food and plenty to drink. A real treat. Thank you so much Barry and Sissy. See you next time we are in Oudtshoorn. Caz... More

We were in Oudtshoorn for a few days and I had booked to visit Magic Moments as it was my lady friends birthday. What an excellent night it turned out to be. We were warmly met by Sissy and Simpiwhe and shown through to the patio area. Other guests and another host Barry arrived and over casual drinks the conversation... More

We first enjoyed an evening with Sissy and Barry in 2015. It proved to be one of the high spots during a wonderful holiday in South Africa. We returned in January of this year and couldn't wait to hear more Magic Moments. The entire evening was once again wonderful. The setting is perfect, we ate a great South African meal... More

Barry had arranged to pick us up and drop us off from our accommodation. When we arrived we were offered a choice of drinks, a few wines and beer. There is a large outdoor area where... More
