Breaking news is that South African citizens do not need a visa to travel to Reunion Island for short stays up to 90 days, the French Island on the Indian Ocean. Â
The island will be present in South Africa for a large-scale presentation and virtual tour of the island. Â Melrose Arch and V&A Waterfront will provide you with an experience of a lifetime as they depict Reunion Island. You will be transported into a land thatâ€™s blessed with a tropical climate and beautiful volcanic landscapes, white sandy beaches and mountain scenery. Â Â
Jean Claude Cleret, world-renowned chef will prepare canapÃ©s for the guests. Now South Africans will experience and taste for themselves why Jean Claude is the greatest French chef to come out of Reunion Island. Â
George Sax will roam the crowd, performing soulful, jazzy tunes on the saxophone with his band. Combining powerful, up-tempo saxophone melodies with party-starting house DJ music, the George Sax duo will offer a sensational beginning to the evening with vibey, upbeat island style music. Â
To end of the entertainment piece is the gorgeous StÃ©phanie Thazar who is dubbed as a â€œChameleon of the Worldâ€.
