Enjoy a weekend away for you and your clients; fine-dining, wine-tasting, a Harley Davidson trip to Cape Point & a tour of vibrant Cape Town and quaint Franschhoek await you
Day One: Arrival into Cape Town, free time in the city & private dinner
After your overnight flight from the UK (with only 2 hours time difference), you will be met at Cape Town International airport by your host and transferred the short distance to the 5-star Cape Grace Hotel, where lunch will be served after allowing you to settle in. The afternoon will be spent at leisure, so that you can explore the vibrant Victoria and Albert Waterfront area, which has some lovely shops, bars and is the departure point for tours to Robben Island. The group will meet for pre-dinner drinks on the pool-deck before a private dinner in the Conservatory.
Cape Grace has won countless awards for its unbeatable service, stylish luxury and exquisite restaurant. Having won the Daily Telegraph’s award for ‘The Best Hotel in Africa’ in 2011, you will not be disappointed on arrival. The rooms are extremely comfortable and have been tastefully decorated using local designers and craftsmen. There is also a spa for those wishing to pamper themselves, and a new, state-of-the-art gym.
