SEMC 2019 Participants will have a choice of three world-class hotels close to the conference venue, at special rates negotiated by the Organisers. These are the renowned Vineyard Hotel and Spa in the quiet and leafy environs of the Newlands suburb, the 4-star Southern Sun Newlands Hotel, and the 3-star Garden Court Nelson Mandela Boulevard Hotel closer to the city centre and the Waterfront. Booking information will be placed here in due course.
Cape Town and the Cape region in general are a popular tourist destination, blessed with scenic surrounds and numerous attractions. Table Mountain, Robben Island (a world heritage site), Cape Point, the Winelands and the Garden Route are but just a few. The town of Hermanus (90 minutes’ drive from Cape Town) is famed for its whale-watching during September, while the world-renowned Kruger National Park (with its big-game viewing) is also within easy reach. The spectacular Victoria Falls (another world heritage site) are a relatively short flight away. A professional tour company has been appointed to arrange sight-seeing excursions for SEMC 2019 delegates and accompanying persons during the Conference and afterwards. Details will be placed here in due course.
