The ultimate 3 day Cape Town Excursion for Badger Holdings from UK
When 14 people partake in 5 events over 3 days you have to agree, “life is good”.
Day 1 – Spectacular Cape Town
Kicking off with a trip up Table Mountain; 14 gloomy faces staring up at cloud covered mountains, cloud cover so thick it looks like the mountains have been chopped in half. Feeling positive, Gavin insists that the view from the top would be perfect. Fortunately within minutes, the sun came out and burnt the clouds off. The views were spectacular. That eerie silence when 14 people suddenly realise they are taking it all in. Cape Town’s majestic views did us proud.
A picnic at the amazing Maidens Cove did not disappoint. The Twelve Apostles and activity on Camps Bay Promenade brilliant.
If you are planning a conference this is definitely the place to go. The first thing that struck me about this venue is the close proximity of the hotel and the parking. Everything is in walking distance and easy to find. (This is important when you are on the clock). Ben the conference facilitator is very organised and a solid compliment to The Spier Brand. He’s focussed, ready and constantly available. He pops up unexpectedly with a huge grin and openness that makes you feel part of the “establishment”.
When 2 banting breakfasts were increased to 7 on the morning of the conference, Ben was on it. Smiling and accommodating handling 4 different meal requests. The man is a legend. He made my position for the morning as “overseer”, a very simple one.Read More
Yesterday I had the pleasure of accompanying Gavin on my first trip to the skydive drop zone in Cape Town. We collected our clients, a Norwegian couple from a nearby Hotel. This was to be their first jump, they were on a roll having successfully survived the shark cage dive we had arranged for them the day before. My guess was that they must have just recently met and were still in the stages of “trying to impress one another”, neither of them looked terrified. I kept sneaking a peak at them in the rear view mirror to see if I could get a glimpse of some panic but they were genuinely amped! In matching turquoise windbreakers they seemed a little too calm for me.Read More
