ILTM Africa has partnered with Explore More Travel to host a series of experiential activities and fam tours in and around Cape Town, for registered participants at this year’s event, which runs 2-4 April. Centred around the Vineyard Hotel, close to the #ILTMA20 venue at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, the activities will give ILTM Africa attendees and Hosted Buyers the opportunity to experience the best that the Cape has to offer, both during and after the luxury B2B travel event.

ILTM Africa’s partner Explore More Travel is an award-winning specialist tour operator that provides international clients with the highest quality travel services and life-changing experiences. Explore More Travel provides a professional, high quality travel consultancy and destination management service to both local and international clients.

Explore More Travel will be hosting a series of daily activities during ILTM Africa to give attendees the opportunity to start their day, the right way. Some experiences carry a fee, while others are complementary – and all are subject to maximum participation numbers. Attendees can enjoy a 7km morning run through leafy Newlands and onwards to the base of Table Mountain; a mid-level Aqua Aerobics session in either the heated indoor or spectacular outdoor pool at The Vineyard; a session with a Yoga expert in the lush Vineyard gardens; a tour of the gardens themselves with head horticulturalist Adrian or a gym training session with The Vineyard’s personal gym instructor.

Those who wish to venture further afield can learn to surf at Gary’s Surf School in Muizenburg; learn to play golf at the stunning Steenberg Golf Club with EOGA Golf Academy; hit the trails on a soft-tail or E-bike MTB through the Newlands Forest and Kirstenbosch Gardens.
