EVENT: Launch of the Dalton Private Reserve – Tugela Municipality, Kwa Zulu Natal

The Dalton Private Reserve was launched in September 2008. A project that spanned over a year-long duration, the launch was a combination of banquet dinner, game drives, a concert and a theatrical re-enactment of historical events.

The guest list consisted solely of international VIP guests (captains of industry in their respective countries) who flew in from Russia, Australia, the U.K., and the U.S.A.

We were committed to ensuring that the people of the Tugela region and within the Kwa Zulu Natal province benefitted from this incredible project. To this end, we enlisted the services of a range of service providers who collaborated with locals to deliver the services required. The companies and services in question include:

Eager Artists – a Durban-based choreography company, headed up by world renowned artistic director, Jerry Pooe who worked with and trained members of the local community to deliver the theatrical historical reenactment.

  • The gifts handed out to the 143 guests in attendance were all sourced from a wide range Kwa-Zulu Natal crafters and artists.
  • Catering was handled by CHC Catering, a Pietermaritzburg based company.
  • Ground transportation for the various contractors (dancers, catering, etc) was supplied in a collaboration with the local taxi companies.
  • The various leisure activities – absailing, game rides, helicopter rides, clay pigeon shooting were all sourced from Kwa-Zulu Natal based suppliers.
  • Storytelling activities were coordinated and performed by local actors and historians.
  • We utilized local community centres (schools, halls, churches, etc.) for performance rehearsals and storage space.
  • The catering for our staff and various suppliers was handled by local vendors.
