TOP FIVE THINGS TO DO BEFORE LEAVING WE ARE AFRICA

This is it, tribe – we’re on the final stretch and you have just a few hours remaining to tick off your We Are Africa 2017 wish list! If you haven’t already, now’s your last chance to explore all the creative elements on our show floor with our top five countdown…


1. MAKE THE MOMENT COUNT WITH GREAT PLAINS CONSERVATION.

Last stop for the Great Plains Land Rover Photo Booth before it rolls on back to the safari camps – head pitchside to grab your #GreatMomentsCount social snap with your new-found tribal friends.


2. UNLEASH YOUR CREATIVE STREAK.

All week we’ve been collaboratively creating a wall mural with artist Lwando Lese – don’t forget to add your part of the story.


3. GET JUICED UP BY FINDING YOUR FAVOURITE TIPPLE.

Whether you want to head pitchside to detox with a juice from Escape+Explore or retox with a craft beer from Beerhouse; hit up Level 00 for coffee from Bean There in the AM and wines by Under The Influence in the afternoon; or hang out all day at the Relais & Châteaux bar on Level 01, we’ve got you covered.


4. STEAL SOME MODERN AFRICAN STYLE AT OUR POP-UP SHOP.

Well, not literally steal, of course – but if you want to take some African magic home with you, now is the time to one-stop-shop at VIBE at the show entrance.


5. PREPARE FOR A CREATIVE EXPLOSION.

You’ve been rocking your best contemporary African looks all week – so tonight, prepare to go all out at our Closing Party. Outlandish prints, more-is-more body embellishment, painted faces and sparkling eyes: nothing is off limits at this colourful extravaganza.
