South Africa- A world in one Rainbow nation
Dramatic mountains, vast oceans and bush landscapes, scenic beauty and wide-open spaces, safaris and the African big 5, teeming marine life, huge cultural diversity, history, and influence, great weather, stunning winelands, world class wine and food and unbeatable value are just some of the things that make this country one of the top destinations in the world for both leisure and corporate travellers.
Add to this Cape Town, one of the top global tourist cities, the buzz and vibe of Johannesburg and laid-back Durban and the country has all the ingredients from which to create the most memorable experiences for Incentives, special conferencing, corporate events and private celebrations.
Concepts Collection embraces this uniqueness of South Africa and combines imaginative destination Inspiration and integrated management solutions under one roof, to create engaging and immersive event and travel experiences that stand out from the crowd and go way, way beyond the normal tourist path.
We don’t offer package solutions or cliched itineraries, but focus on designing personalised customised experiences and activities that truly engage and connect to the people, culture and heart of South Africa.
Bespoke experiences with Concepts Collection
The Big 5 but 1000s of options
The African safari in Kruger Park is a bucket list for many with game drives and animal spotting in the bush, designer safari lodges, nights under canvas, stargazing and boma dinners. Smaller hidden gem game reserves like Madikwe, the Waterberg and Hluhluwe are also unique places and we specialise in connecting groups deeper to the bush experience through projects like anti- poaching and endangered species protection, land conservation, sustainability and environmental education and community farming
Adrenaline and Adventure Thrills
South Africa really is the great outdoors and perfect for groups who like nature and getting physical. Hiking, cycling, climbing, abseiling, paragliding, zip lining are just some of the land activities, whilst on the sea surfing, shark cage diving, snorkelling, kayaking, sailing and powerboating, can also be weaved into exhilarating incentive and group experiences.
South Africa really is a multicultural country one still undergoing challenging transformation from its dark past.
We help our visitors see South African life from all angles including through the eyes and stories of people and communities who were subject to previous racial segregation in South Africa. Many of them are still living in hugely challenging circumstances, but who are all an essential and influential part of the history and growth of this truly multicultural country. From real Township tourism to social responsibility programmes, to art music and dance we connect to the real people and personalities of this emerging country and see the very best and most challenging aspects of life.
Gastronomy and grape delights
The Cape Winelands are an essential part of any South African visit, with soaring mountains, beautiful scenery, hundreds of wine farms, amazing restaurants, boutique hotels and so many things to see and do. Long lazy lunches a part of winelands experience, but we develop bespoke programmes including food foraging, cooking with chefs and going off the beaten track to meet new maverick black and coloured wine makers who are making great wine and transforming an industry from which they were previously excluded and exploited.
Gateway to Africa
Combining South Africa adventures with visiting a neighbouring country is hugely popular with our efficient transport links. The beauty of Victoria falls and the huge rivers of the Zambezi and Chobe combined with game viewing in Zimbabwe or Zambia are within easy reach. The Okavango delta of Botswana, the vast deserts and beauty of Namibia and the beaches of Mozambique we can encompass in a dual country trip.
Preserving the African wildlife environment on both land and sea is major issue, with ocean plastic, rhino poaching, destruction of habitat, human encroachment and farming practices already putting the future of the land and sea safari under serious threat.
Many animal and marine species are on the brink of extinction, for some it may be already too late, but we invite our international visitors to engage with and contribute to important animal conservation and endangered species projects, education programmes, animal rehabilitation and replanting projects.
