Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup

Throw-back to hosting royalty at Val de Vie Estate in 2015. This was the first time that the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup was held on African soil, after being conceptualised by Prince Harry in 2010. This event – the largest one-day charity polo event in the world – took place two days after the opening ceremony of Sentebale’s Mamohato Children’s Centre in Lesotho, both organised by Val de Vie Events. It was an honour to have Prince Harry & Nacho Figueras play polo on our grounds.
