One&Only Cape Town hosts wildlife conservation experts Colin Bell and Lorne Sulcas

FOR hundreds of years, intrepid explorers have returned to their homes, bursting with tales of their adventures and the trials endured while living their lives less ordinary. Though technology has made armchair travel that much more accessible, nothing beats hearing a first-hand account of an incredible journey, adventure or physical feat.

This year, One&Only Cape Town invites guests to a fascinating line up of evening talks, followed by a mouth-watering dinner at Reuben’s, the resort’s popular dining venue. From stories of the intricacies of trailing Great White Sharks in their natural habitat to tales of taming the Congo on a 3000km journey on foot and polar bear encounters in the North Pole, the line up promises to inspire and captivate listeners. The cost per person including dinner (excluding beverages) is R275 per person per Talk.
