Here at Xcede, we love to reward the members of our team who go the extra mile. One of the ways we do this is through our incentive trips – offering a summer and a winter trip for our most successful consultants. The winners of our summer trip jetted off to Cape Town in September and enjoyed a packed itinerary of amazing experiences. We want to say a huge congratulations to the Xceders who won a place on our summer incentive and share some of the highlights of their trip to South Africa.
The experience started as the group arrived in Cape Town from London and checked into the 5-star Pepperclub hotel. Boasting a luxury spa, cinema, and swimming pool with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, it was the perfect base to explore everything that Cape Town has to offer. The group started their first day with a sunset cable-car trip to the top of Table Mountain, followed by dinner at La Colombe, ranked one of the best fine dining restaurants in the world. Bao Trinh, Consultant at Xcede shared her experience of the day:
“Incredible food and lot of activities! It was the best incentive I’ve been on.”
Things got a little more adventurous after that as the Xceders took the plunge in a shark diving experience. The brave consultants came face to face with the predators and a range of marine wildlife as they enjoyed a cage dive at Seal Island. It’s certainly something they will never forget! They got to enjoy more animal experiences later in the trip, with an expedition to see penguins at Boulders Beach and a 3-hour game drive. As Max Effendowicz, Team Leader at Xcede said:
“The South Africa incentive was the best incentive so far because we could experience things that people would genuinely do once in a lifetime. The itinerary was perfect from start to finish.”
With so much action going on in the day, the group spent the evenings relaxing in some of Cape Town’s hottest restaurants and bars. From sunset dinner at Chefs Warehouse to table service at Cocoon nightclub. Cocoon is on the 31st floor of the ABSA building and boasts panoramic views of the city skyline.
The winning group returned to London with memories of an amazing trip. Here’s to a successful rest of the year for our team and an equally impressive winter incentive trip to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
