This year’s theme, is Stars of Africathat ‘shine at night, lighting the skies so mystically bright, they sparkle on throughout the day, showing themselves in a different way.’ So fitting because if there is on thing Africans do well is shine, day or night—in every sense—and we certainly do show ourselves in a different way. We’ll get to witness this and so much more, at the most anticipated horse-racing event in SA. Yes, it's a horse-racing event, but its more about the red carpet, the who’s who and the exclusive hospitality lounge experience.
Here are the three ‘star’ marquees at the Vodacom Durban July:
The Chaise Lounge
This opulent award-winning lounge is the marquees for the cool kids. After-all it won the award for best hospitality suite in 2018. If fashion, lights, camera and a whole lot of action is your thing, you will fit right in. Excellent service and vibe, upscale menu and stunning décor. It really is the marquees for the stars.
