Incentive group travel can be luxurious and high-end, or it can be adventurous and authentic. There are endless Southern African destinations offering unique experiences to fit almost any budget.  All programmes are completely tailor-made and adapted to suit your company’s needs.  We work as an extension of your team and take the time to get to know your business and objectives.

We create comprehensive incentive trips beyond what the everyday traveller has access to.  Our trips are designed to motivate, reward and inspire. Incentive travel offers endless exciting opportunities for your premium clients and best-performing employees to feel motivated and appreciated while bonding over shared experiences.

Blue Velvet’s complete solution is characterised by meticulous attention to detail to your corporate functions, starting from the meet and greet at the airport, luxury transfers, visits and interactive activities, to luxury accommodation, conservation options and sourcing speciality gifting.  Complementing the trip, we provide full event management of gala dinners and awards ceremonies.

Whether you choose Tiger fishing on Lake Kariba, or hot-air ballooning over the African wilderness at dawn, up-close encounters with Africa’s wildlife, or prefer to sip champagne on the top of the iconic Table Mountain, your Blue Velvet experience is tailor made to your requirements.

Southern Africa is one of the world’s best destinations for creative incentive and event travel

It’s so refreshing and inspiring to deal with people who are willing to go the extra mile to create a truly unique and memorable customer experience. Where Gill & Courtney are involved, I can rest easy, knowing that the event will be a resounding success! Thank you ladies 😉

Thank you so much for your professional and calm manner in which you approached our event on Tuesday. Your professionalism made the world of difference! Thank you also for the special touch in organising some awesome vehicles with Volvo, wow! You know, it is things like that, which is really appreciated at Data Sciences, the small, unexpected wow-factor! I loved it! Can’t wait for the next one!

What an outstanding evening, Gill and Courtney raised the bar. We have had many year-end functions, but have never reached this level. The venue choice, decor, entertainment were top notch. Highly recommend this superb team.

We have made use of Gill’s expertise in both a personal and professional capacity and I can certainly highly recommend Blue Velvet. Bringing people together in the right space to create memorable experiences is simply what they excel at. Thank you and we look forward to many more exceptional experiences.
