“Filled with enticing adventure and a bucket list of diverse experiences, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Mozambique is undoubtedly a big ticket conference and incentive destination to motivate or reward a high achieving team”.

Southern Africa

The region’s great safari destinations: South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana, offer the most memorable incentive itineraries and even alternative conference locations: luxury lodges and wilderness camping experiences combine with safari adventures to spot the ultimate “Big Five”… by day, by night, by air, by land…

And it rarely stops at safari. Southern Africa’s majestic landscapes –jaw-dropping sky-high sand dunes in Namibia, beautiful white sand beaches of Mozambique and the thundering Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Zambia – are breath-taking settings for adrenalin adventure, conference retreats and meditational escapes. More importantly events in Southern Africa enjoy incredible opportunities to experience fascinating tribal culture, engage with friendly locals and leave a legacy through much welcomed CSR activities.

For clients organising events in Africa for the very first time, Southern Africa is the perfect induction. Incentives to cosmopolitan Cape Town enjoy the world’s best wine, wildlife and world heritage sites at Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope, and conferences in Johannesburg experience exceptional convention facilities close to the action of the world’s largest natural game reserve at Kruger National Park.

“Southern Africa is impossible to embrace in one event – it is a lifetime of travel experiences, that once you touch, it is hard to shake the bug. South Africa is an excellent starting point for events in Southern Africa, whether it’s a company’s first time in this fascinating continent or not. In this country alone there are many diverse experiences and the facilities are excellent. Its new democracy is evident in the progressive development of the country’s infrastructure for events and a thriving economy.

Southern Africa offers many hotels with world standard conference facilities and technology. Even some safari lodges are fully equipped to offer innovative locations for board meetings and corporate retreats.

Travelling from Europe, events in Southern Africa offer the luxury of a long haul experience and the beauty of winter sun, yet with only a 2-3 hour time difference, meaning that jet lag is non-existent – a distinct advantage over other long haul destinations.

Companies that have organised events in Southern Africa previously need not be concerned about repeating the experience in other Southern African destinations. Each country offers its own unique experiences of safari adventures and more. There are also very different Southern African countries, such as beautiful Mozambique that has a luxury tropical island feel, with beautiful resorts, white sand beaches and incredible scuba diving and sailing opportunities, perfect for incentives or relaxed conferences; or the dramatic landscapes of Namibia that offer desert experiences, unique tribal villages and a fascinating European heritage, complete with a dining scene likened to the culinary expertise of Switzerland! This region is full of surprises but can be guaranteed to deliver adventure, natural beauty and out of this world memories and luxury experiences for events, with competitive services and facilities that offer excellent value for money.
