Published on

In an attempt to spread the word about exciting and unique incentive travel opportunities, Incentive Solutions travel planners have working alongside our extensive network of hotel partners, destination management companies (DMCs) and local tourism boards to bring you the monthly Emerging Incentive Travel Destination series. We kicked the series off with an article about Cuba [LINK TO CUBA ARTICLE] in January. This month, we’re bringing you details about a land that’s a little wilder: Africa.
Africa certainly may not be what comes to mind when many think of travel incentives, group travel, or corporate events and meetings. But that’s exactly what makes it thrilling and buzzworthy. When someone tells you he or she just got back from a sales incentive trip to Hawaii, you immediately imagine beach-facing meeting rooms and colleagues having poolside mimosas together. But a corporate travel or incentive trip to Africa? That’s bound to raise some eyebrows and inspire questions.

But that’s exactly what makes it thrilling and buzzworthy. When someone tells you he or she just got back from a sales incentive trip to Hawaii, you immediately imagine beach-facing meeting rooms and colleagues having poolside mimosas together. But a corporate travel or incentive trip to Africa? That’s bound to raise some eyebrows and inspire questions. Here are just a few things your business associates or salespeople would say to others about their incentive travel experience in Africa: AFRICA
  4. 4. TITLE GOES HERE Subtitle Here Click to edit Master title style Business conferences and group travel events typically feature exploration and activity time that allows attendees to sample the nightlife, visit local bars, stroll the shopping centers and break off to various other tourist traps. On an African group travel trip, attendees can instead have a truly unconventional, memorable team building and bonding experience. Fellow travelers will never forget going on an open- vehicle safari together and watching a pride of lions hunt on the plains. Private game reserves such as the Shamwari in the Eastern Cape are home to lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalos, animals that many would never otherwise see in their lifetime except in zoos. Everyone involved will have stories, pictures and social media posts to share during the trip and long after. “GOING ON A SAFARI TOGETHER WAS A GREAT TEAM BUILDING EXPERIENCE.”

For those who would rather appreciate the country’s beauty from a distance—or relax after a long excursion on the savanna, there are peaceful, isolated locations like the Maputaland Beach Adventure offer the chance to play beach volleyball, go snorkeling, or just relax while reading, listening to the surf, and enjoying the gorgeous, cloudless African weather. Attendees can also relax in places like Westin Lion Sands’ outdoor swimming pool, right beside a watering hole where elephants come to drink. On an African incentive trip, attendees can choose how immersed they want to be in nature, while resting assured that everywhere they look, they see something wonderful and wild that they certainly can’t see at home.

Ecotourism in The Cape’s winelands has greatly aided conservation groups’ efforts to minimize natural habitat loss and develop more sustainable wine production. Incentive travel attendees can contribute to these efforts when they enjoy biking, hiking and driving tours of game reserves.

But few places can offer the out-of-the-ordinary beauty and majesty of Africa. In many cases, the purpose of an incentive trip is to refresh attendees and inspire new ideas. Nothing can jolt your travel participants out of their routines quite like a safari or a hike through mountainous African winelands. A journey to heart of earth’s natural wonders is sure to motivate sales teams and cultivate closer bonds with business partners.
