South Africa: the land of untouched wildlife and scenery. A country you dream of visiting one day. For our best performing Vibers, this dream came true during our Winter Incentive to South Africa. We went to Sun City: the Palace of the Lost City. An extravagant hotel and all activities you can dream of doing, just in one weekend. Share our joy in this blog!
PREPARATION FOR A WEEKEND OF A LIFETIME: AN INCENTIVE TO SOUTH AFRICA
A few days before departure, the lucky few were invited to our office to walk through the activities. To make this even more pleasant, we hired a cocktail shaker that brewed the best African cocktails for us. A few days later, it was departure day for our incentive to South Africa. We were awaited by our Event Manager on Schiphol, who handed over our itinerary and custom-made Vibe Group headwear for the weekend. Let the fun begin!
SUN CITY: PALACE OF THE LOST CITY
After a long flight (11 hours!) and a transfer from the airport, we arrived at our resort in Sun City. Inspired by the myth of a lost African kingdom, The Palace of the Lost City is set on the highest ground at Sun City, ensuring that its grand proportions and graceful towers are visible from across the resort. The fantasy of an African palace is indulged in every detail, from the stately volumes of the reception and dining areas to the mosaics, frescoes and fountains that enhance the architecture. An amazing place to stay for the weekend!
OUR FIRST GAME DRIVE!
The next morning, we had some time to discover the resort in all its glory. We had breakfast and took a dip in the pool afterwards.
Of course, we’re not just here to enjoy the resort, so we went back to nature with a Segway tour. We saw crocodiles and all kinds of birds along the way!
After our Segway Tour, some food was very welcome. We had lunch at the Pool deck and then it was time for the best activity of the whole trip: the game drive! Late afternoon, a car dropped us of at the Pilanesberg Game reserve, where we spotted lions, zebras, elephants. Truly unforgettable!
After this remarkable experience, we went for dinner and late night drinks. The night was still young and so are our Vibers, so we went on until early in the morning.
POOLS, QUADS AND BITES
After a long night, we had some breakfast and prepared ourselves for the next activity: a quad tour through South Africa’s beautiful nature.
After our Quad Tour, some cooling off was very welcome. We went to our resort’s water park. What an amazing experience this was!
Quite tired from all the fun activities, we went for dinner and late night drinks. We prepared for a short night’s sleep, because tomorrow morning at 5.15, we go on another game drive!
BACK TO REALITY
After a very short night, the day of departure had arrived. But not before we go on our final game drive. We’re expected to be ready at 5.15 am, to see the animals awaken in the beautiful South African nature. After we saw buffalo, elephants and lions, we had breakfast and are thinking about the souvenirs we have to buy. It’s time for some last minute shopping!
After all this, it was time to head back to the airport of Johannesburg. This incentive was surely unforgettable.
