Effort and relaxation
South Africa is an outstanding example of a host country where work and leisure -Business Tourism- match extremely well: quality, exclusivity and diversity at a reasonable price. Hotels and conference centers are equipped with the latest facilities for meetings and seminars and give proof of a high standard of quality and service. South Africa offers truly African safari lodges, good transport facilities, excellent food and wines and a rich choice of unforgettable leisure activities: varying from playing on one of the world's most beautiful golf courses to having a pampering massage at a wellness center; from an adrenaline rising survival trip in the African jungle to the further enhancement of your culinary skills in the middle of extensive vineyards. In addition South Africa lies at a flying distance of 10 hours from The Netherlands in the same time zone, which prevents the dreaded jetlag.

It is not only the combination of excellent accommodation, fabulous food and wines and the wide range of leisure activities that makes South Africa such an attractive Business Tourism destination. Moreover it is the intriguing political history, rich heritage of African traditions and philosophy of South African Ubuntu (personality) that makes South Africa an intriguing and fascinating host country for incentive trips.
