Luxury corporate incentive trip to Cape Town

Ursula Forrest - Tuesday, November 12, 2019
In January 2018 I had the pleasure of conceptualizing and planning a joint birthday celebration for a Swedish coupleliving in Cape Town. The couple invited 48 of their Swedish friends to join them for a weekend’s celebration in Cape Town. One of their guests contacted me a couple of months later to ask me to arrange a corporate incentive for his company,  Lagerlings.

Lagerling’s is a luxury villa company based in Sweden. Every year the Lagerling team have an annual incentive trip to a new country and the owner, Richard Lagerling requested that I conceptualise and coordinate an ultra-luxurious 4-day holiday showcasing the best of Cape Town.

 I arranged a 4-day experiential trip that included;

  • A luxury villa in Clifton and boutique hotel accommodation at The Pod Hotel in Camps Bay
  • Butler and chef on hand at the villa to provide breakfast each morning and pre-dinner cocktails
  • Two themed dinners at the villa with private chefs with live entertainment
  • Dinner at Luke Dale Roberts, famous Cape Town restaurant, The Potluck Club
  • Lunch at  La Petite Colombe with a surprise helicopter trip to Franschhoek for the team
  • Sight-seeing excursions which included food foraging and lunch at Nicky Gibbs, Crofter's Kitchen, a cable car ride up the iconic Table Mountain, sunset drinks at Cape Point Vineyards and private wine tasting at a few of Franschhoek's boutique wine estates.
  • Luxury VIP airport meet and greet with express pass through customs
  • Luxury chauffeur-driven transport for the duration of their trip
  • A welcome booklet highlighting each day’s itinerary and dress code (without giving too much away as each day’s activities were a surprise)
  • Personalized South African welcome gifts

    There is nothing more satisfying than receiving wonderful client feedback post event, especially when their arrival flight was delayed by a few hours and the weather didn’t always play along! Thanks to incredible suppliers and industry relationships, we juggled schedules and still managed to make sure that the Lagerling team had an incredible 4-day trip to Cape Town!


    I want to thank you for providing an absolutely splendid service before and during our visit to Cape Town. You really made this trip very special for us all. We could not be happier about all the arrangements.

    From beginning to end all was perfect. You are a very nice person and it’s obvious that you have a great understanding of how important all the details are for a complete experience.

    From all of us at Lagerlings we want to convey our sincerest gratitude and a big thank you!! I hope to see you again during our next visit. Please feel free to enjoy the wines that were left for yourself and your family.

    Please send our regards to all of the team that made our visit to Cape Town a very special memory for us all.

    Best Regards


    A big thank you to the suppliers who made the incentive trip an unforgettable and memorable experience for the Lagerling team:
