Conference at Melrose Arch Upon arrival, guests were invited to an intriguing welcome meeting. In their room, an invitation was left, but not a common one, an old style cinema ticket. At 4pm, the entire group met in front of the conference room. Cinema hostesses with trays of popcorn were here to collect tickets and distribute popcorn. At the end of the meeting, a surprise guest arrived; a member of the Soweto gospel choir came especially for the group. In an incredible ambience, the singer taught the group the must know Pata Pata song. Do you know any better way to start the stay?

HANG ON! – Speed boat at Cape Point

LITT GROUPE#1 243The peninsula from the earth was fantastic, and the Harley and side car transportation made it even more wonderful. After a lunch at Black Marlin restaurant, how about having a look at the peninsula, from the sea? Alright, speedboats are more about fun and adrenaline but still, on board for a great afternoon! The boat goes up to 50 kilometers an hour. Hang on, smile and laugh guaranteed!

PARTY TIME – Exclusive night at Shimmy’s
Shimmy Beach Club

After a transfer in a party bus, guests were welcomed to the popular Shimmy Beach Club, one of the trendiest in Cape Town. Its artificial beach, azure pool and beautiful view onto the ocean, make it an incredible place at sunset. The restaurant had been privatized for the group and after a delightful meal, a band made an appearance on stage. 1st Project, a world-known South African percussion group, performed for the guests. Behind their drums the four guys set the stage on fire. At the end of the concert, in a crazy atmosphere, the party started.
