Maeve O'Meara hits the safari road with girls and Paspaley pearls

Cinderella Safari returns to The Kimberley for Broome Cup day...

Gourmet Safaris and Pinctada Cable Beach have announced a second ‘Gorgeous Girls & Pearls Safari’ to coincide with the biggest day on Broome’s racing calendar, the Broome Cup on August 14.

The second Gorgeous Girls & Pearls Safari will be held from August 12-17 2010 at Pinctada Cable Beach, Broome’s new award-winning five star spa resort.
Maeve O’Meara, Founder and Director of Gourmet Safaris, says The Gorgeous Girls & Pearls Safari, a travel experience created for women by women, reflects a worldwide trend in the growth of exclusive women’s travel experiences.

“Women’s exclusive travel is a phenomenon in other parts of the world, it’s growing in Australia and our first Broome safari ticked all the boxes,” she said. “Last month’s Gorgeous Girls & Pearls Safari was a sell-out and met all expectations. We hosted women of varying ages from a mix of rural and city backgrounds and something very special happens when women come together to share and enjoy experiences.”

The Gorgeous Girls & Pearls Safari includes several customised and ‘money can’t buy’ experiences including the opportunity to be dressed by Paspaley in their finest pearls for the safari’s final night gala dinner at Pinctada’s award-winning SELENE Brasserie. Maeve regards this experience as a highlight of the inaugural Broome safari and also an example of the fun and special moments that exclusive women’s travel offers.
