Why conference on a safari game reserve?
You may have the image of luxury safari lodges being for pleasure only, but the fact is that they make fantastic venue options for conferences and corporate meet-ups of all sorts and sizes. You have the sheer convenience of conference facilities, team building or incentive opportunities, and quality accommodation all within a stone’s throw of each other, making organisation a breeze and keeping the bill down. The quiet seclusion of the bush is a perfect way to both relax your team into a receptive, refreshed bunch of go-getters as well as keep attention solidly focused on the nitty-gritty of your event without the distractions of urban city life.
The natural beauty of the reserve brings a unique blend of peace, stillness and invigoration to the table, allowing a little play to keep the workload feeling light, and helping delegates feel like a valued, welcome part of your organisation. In short, the question isn’t, ‘why have a conference on a nature reserve’, it’s ‘why didn’t we think of this sooner’!
