Why choose South Africa as your next Incentive / Conference destination?

South Africa is a country undergoing a positive evolution – from an oppressive past to a vibrant democracy. Economic gloom and doom may have weighed down the atmosphere in the Northern Hemisphere…but South Africa still offers international visitors an affordable, top quality destination given the low value of our currency (South African Rands) against the US Dollar, Pound Sterling and Euro.

What sets South Africa apart as a long-haul incentive destination?

  • The dream-holiday WOW factor
  • Appealing climate
  • Breathtaking natural surroundings and adventure coupled with 5-star services
  • Top quality accommodation and service levels appealing to all budgets
  • Good infrastructure
  • Value for money
  • Excellent wine and gourmet cuisine
  • Diverse cultures
  • Vibrant nightlife
