As is the case with all event and meeting planning, there are seemingly a million different things to consider. Here are the top 5 considerations to keep in mind when planning an event or meeting in Kruger National Park.
The considerations you keep in mind when planning a meeting are very different from those you consider when you plan a wedding or event. When you start planning your unforgettable event or meeting, it is important to consider how large your event will be. This in turn dictates certain aspects of your planning such as venues, accommodation, catering and more. While an event or meeting for 10 people is a little easier than an event for 250 people, careful consideration should be taken to ensure that your guests are comfortable, entertained and well-fed to ensure a smooth event.
When you have the beauty of the South African bush on your doorstep, why not venture into the wild for your meeting or event? While the thrill of a safari can get almost anyone on the edge of their seats, the last thing you want for your guests is to be left out with the lions. Ensuring that you choose a venue that can accommodate all your guests is important to ensure that your event goes off without a hitch. Kruger National Park offers a variety of accommodations, ranging from luxury lodges to rustic campsites. Depending on the size and duration of your event, you may need to arrange accommodations for your attendees. Some venues offer on-site accommodations, while others may require attendees to book accommodations separately.
Does your event require conferencing facilities, dining options or a beautiful spot for a wedding? These are all aspects that you need to consider when planning your meeting or event. Once you know how many people you need to accommodate and have considered how to accommodate them, you need to consider what you need for your event to happen.
Kruger National Park offers various sites for events, from luxury lodges to rustic campsites. Depending on the type of event and the number of attendees, you can choose from a variety of venues that suit your needs. Some of the popular venues for events in Kruger National Park include Skukuza, Lower Sabie, Satara, and Olifants Rest Camps, all of which offer conference facilities and other amenities.
No one likes to be hungry. Ensuring your event has great catering is a must and it is a huge consideration. Whether you are planning buffet breakfasts, casual canapes or bush braais you need to consider the type of catering services you may need for your meeting or event in the Kruger National Park. While most venues offer catering services, some do not. If your venue does not offer catering services you can arrange for outside catering, and even catering for different dietary requirements.
You wouldn’t be planning your meeting or event in Kruger National Park if you wanted it to be a one day experience. Kruger National Park offers a variety of activities and excursions, including game drives, guided walks, and cultural experiences. When planning your event, consider incorporating these activities into your schedule to provide your attendees with a memorable experience. You can work with your venue or event planner to arrange these activities and ensure they fit into your schedule.
