Event Planners can always count on IMEX to find hidden gems that one may not otherwise discover including off the beaten track adventures and event venues that deliver exotic experiences straight from the bucket list.
Think stunning locations in natural surroundings which surpass the comforts of home. Groups can look forward to amenities like gourmet cuisine, butler or personalized attendant service and spa treatments. Here are 3 examples of safari resorts that have been represented at IMEX in Frankfurt or Las Vegas.
Four Seasons Safari Lodge (Tanzania)
In the heart of Serengeti National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Four Seasons Safari Lodge is an ideal base for photo safaris, family safaris and hot air balloon safaris over the Serengeti.
The 60 guest rooms, 12 suites and 5 villas reflect contemporary African decor including 4 poster beds with mosquito netting.
From Botswana to China to Tanzania to Uganda to Zambia and beyond, Sanctuary Retreats offers a shimmering collection of luxury safari camps. Each one is different.
Sanctuary Masai Mara, a seasonal camp with 9 safari tents on the banks of the Mara River in Kenya, offers traditional safaris with an opportunity to get involved in CSR projects.
Sanctuary Stanley's Camp on a private concession in the Okavango Delta in Botswana provides guests with opportunities for personal interaction with elephants and other wildlife.
Sanctuary Yangtze Explorer is a floating venue on the Yangtze River in China where guests can relax in large cabins with spacious, private balconies.
Even if travel to an exotic destination on the other side of the world is not in the budget this year, companies in the Americas can still have unforgettable experiences. I have previously written about Desert Safaris American Style.
Now Mustang Monument in the heart of a wild horse preserve created to save the wild mustang re-creates the adventures of the wild west.
Accommodation consists of luxurious tipis and safari cottages. With down pillows, high quality sheets and pillows, terry cloth bath robes, and spa treatments, it will be easy to forget that one is in a remote location.
