A total of 35 staff from the company, which owns a number of resorts nationwide, including Eyemouth Holiday Park, enjoyed an action-packed week, from abseiling to paragliding in the South African city.

The Elite Trip celebrated people who had gone above and beyond throughout the year, or gained an outstanding achievement.

The week started at Table Mountain, where the group abseiled down the face of the mountain before tandem paragliding off Lion’s Head, exploring Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, a city tour, and visiting Boschendal Wine Farm for wine tasting and a picnic.

Evenings were filled with traditional entertainment and the chance to enjoy local cuisine.
