Women love travel
All-girl travel retreats we love
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that the future of travel is female! Earlier in 2018, our Chief Destineer, Mariette du Toit-Helmbold joined a panel discussion about Women in Tourism and shed some light on the fascinating phenomenon of travel taking on a far more feminine form these days.
“Recent statistics show that two-thirds of travellers are women and, according to the US Travel Association, more than 11% of adult leisure travellers are solo females,” she said. “With this in mind, it’s no surprise that 80% of all travel decisions and 92% of travel purchases are made by women too.” For many women travel is all about leaving their comfort zones, looking for that once-in-a-lifetime adventure, or finding some solitude and getting away from the routine of daily life. Being an all-girl team of avid travellers ourselves, we understand this so well.
We’re not fans of the traditional retreat where it is all about silence, solitude and salad leaves…we’re more about deep connections with self and others over delicious food, good wine, heart to hearts and indulgent spa treatments. We also know how intimidating it can be to plan a trip – especially a solo one – without some help. That’s why we’ve carefully crafted three retreats that are sure to rejuvenate any adventurous woman’s soul. Take a look:
