Take the winter getaway of a lifetime with a South African adventure developed by Sir Richard Branson.
You are invited on a one-of-a-kind journey, first to take in the wildlife at a private game reserve with Sir Richard himself, then to connect with young entrepreneurs who are transforming their country from within, thanks to his help. The four-night trip includes round-trip transportation, two nights at Ulusaba, Branson’s private reserve, and two nights in dynamic Johannesburg, plus all meals and social activities.
To kick off the adventure, you’ll head to the city for the chance to assume a mentorship role with the young entrepreneurs at The Branson Centre. This hub of creativity is where these future leaders are learning business skills and gaining access to professionals in various fields in an effort to benefit their community. In Johannesburg you will also connect with South Africa’s rich political and cultural history and spend time with local leaders. After your urban excursion you’ll head to the bush, taking in the “Big Five” (lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards and rhinos) at Sir Richard’s private game reserve.
This will be a journey that’s both fun and in the service of a greater good. You’ll arrive back home feeling empowered and inspired by the lifelong friends you’ve just made. You can’t say that about a winter vacation spent opening presents and eating pie.
The proceeds for this item benefit Virgin Unite and The Eve Branson Foundation.
The auction can be accessed via CharityBuzz.com.
Also going under the hammer is the chance to spend 14 days at Sir Richard’s retreats: it will be the adventure of a lifetime that will bring you to three of the world’s most amazing locations. You don’t want to miss out on this trip.
You are invited to travel the globe, visiting three of Branson’s deluxe properties on the dates of your choice. You’ll spend an entire week at Branson’s Great House on Necker Island in the Caribbean’s British Virgin Islands. You’ll enjoy pristine beaches, deluxe food and plenty of activities during a “Celebration Week,” when the island is reserved just for couples.
Then, you’ll take a trip across the Atlantic to discover Ulusaba, Branson’s private South African safari game reserve. For three days, you’ll view some of the world’s most exotic wildlife in a stunning bush setting.
Finally, plan your excursion to Kasbah Tamadot, at the base of Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, just an hour from bustling Marrakesh. The 27-bedroom, multi-suite resort boasts lush gardens, indoor and outdoor pools and kitchens serving delicious local delicacies. En route home through London, you’ll be able to fight jetlag at a top hotel, courtesy of Jetsetter.com, plus a dinner at The Roof Gardens, Branson’s private club in Kensington.
Each location can be visited on separate occasions, but the Virgin Limited Reservations team can help combine the destinations into one truly memorable trip: you won’t be the same person when you return as when you left.
And with a portion of proceeds from the trip benefiting Virgin Unite, the company’s charitable arm, you may just change the world a little bit, too.
