Tour Operators & DMC's - Join our Pre-Conference Garden Route Adventure Fam


An exciting SATSA and Wesgro adventure awaits our Tour Operator / DMC members in the Garden Route!


Scheduled as a pre-SATSA conference fam trip, the gorgeous Garden Route Fam offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the destination, experiencing glistening coastlines, grand mountain vistas, gastronomic delights, and the gracious hospitality of one of South Africa's most picturesque and iconic regions.


Taking place between 11 to 14 August 2024, the fam will conclude at the SATSA 2024 "This is Us" Conference at the Arabella Hotel in the Overberg, just in time for the Welcome Dinner.

Finally, we'll arrive back at Arabella just in time for the SATSA Conference Welcome Dinner for attending and then the final leg back to Cape Town International Airport.
