The brief was a simple one. Come up with an incentive trip and programme that will reward a select band of over achievers and thank them all for an exceptional year. So what did we come up with?

Cape Town hits the spot, and is special, but can it be made anymore special? Of course. An overnight excursion to the beautiful Shamwari Game Reserve just added the WOW factor that our client wanted. The beautiful boutique Cape Grace hotel was to be the base, and the views of the marina and the mountain are a stunning way to start your day.

After an overnight flight to Cape Town, the group were whisked off to Signal Hill for a Champagne breakfast overlooking the city, and with a back drop of Table Mountain you could not ask for more. The programme also took in the spectacular wine lands of Stellenbosch, the rugged coastline at Cape Point, a visit to a local township and food at some very fine restaurants indeed. Adding some of South Africa’s finest wines, a good time was had by all. Shamwari just took the trip to the next level. After a short internal flight to Port Elizabeth, the guests were taken to their lodges and the magic began. Standing on the terrace and watching 2 Giraffes casually stroll by within 10 minutes turns the WOW’s into OMG’s! And so it continued. Game drives to see the big 5, dinner in the main house, and sights and sounds to remember forever.

Our client wanted us to deliver extraordinary experiences and life long memories. Job done we say.
