Produce a six-night event that would linger forever in the memory, creating a trip of a lifetime for 18 guests. This would be the flagship event for Alpha Club, which is a members’ club offering exclusive access to ‘money cannot buy’ experiences. No pressure then.
Two nights’ stay in Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge.
Two nights at The Royal Livingstone in Zambia.
Two nights in Chobe Game Lodge.
Business class flights and two private charter flights into the game reserve.
We didn’t fly nearby and then travel on miles of bumpy roads, for hours on end. We flew guests on a private plane, directly into the game reserve.
The guests were greeted by a children’s welcome party in Sabi Sabi. In return they kindly donated books and pens to the local school, building on the sense of goodwill.
Alongside the stunning scenery and breathtaking wildlife of the safari, the guests were treated to exceptional dining. Lunch was served in the shallow pool of the hotel so guests could cool their dangling feet while feasting on local gourmet food and wine pairings.
Whilst looking out at the sun setting over the expansive landscape, abundant with life, guests were served gin and tonic ice lollies. Right in the middle of the bush, the heat dropping out the day, the spectacular surroundings and a G&T lolly. Dinner was then served round roaring fires, with an African choir singing and dancing under the stars.
And if that wasn’t enough, imagine taking a helicopter trip over the Zambezi and Victoria Falls, followed by sundowners on an island in the Zambezi river. And to top it all, a private carriage on the Royal Livingstone Express train, with drinks flowing, fine dining and entertainment laid on.
A trip enough for several lifetimes.
