LONDON, October 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Already finding it too cold and want to escape somewhere warmer for Christmas… then look no further as Virgin Limited Edition's African retreats fully embrace the festive season, taking the best bits of the season and combining them with the charm of each retreat.

Guests can enjoy a magical Christmas or New Year in the High Atlas Mountains at Kasbah Tamadot in Morocco. Here they will experience festive Berber feasts with all the trimmings, live local entertainment and tasting of fine Moroccan wines. Plus, for those lucky enough to see in the New Year at Kasbah Tamadot we'll be throwing in fireworks to see the New Year in with a bang.

Both Christmas and New Year offers include accommodation, transfers, the above activities, all food and drinks with a traditional Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day lunch with all the trimmings, as well as a New Year's Eve gala dinner with fireworks and entertainment and a New Year's Day brunch. Christmas and New Year Celebrations are available from USD $1,961 per person for a three night stay, based on two people sharing a double room and are priced in Euros.

With temperatures in South Africa set to be hot in December, Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is the perfect place to enjoy the heat in the lush green bush. Celebrations begin with the community choir singing favourite carols and on Christmas Eve the team prepare a traditional feast in the heart of the bush over an open fire to the backdrop of African sounds of our local entertainment. On Christmas Day, guests will be whisked away to a secret location in the bush to open presents followed by a festive lunch at the lodge. If this wasn't appetising enough, we also invite guests to join the Ulusaba family to see in the New Year under a blanket of stars and for the bush babies out there they'll be able to enjoy a late-morning champagne brunch on New Year's Day.

Prices for both Christmas and New Year start from USD $6,471 per couple for a five night stay based on two people sharing a double room and are priced in South African Rand. This includes twice-daily game drives, accommodation, all meals and drinks. Plus, children under 12 sharing with at least one adult stay for free!
