Classic Portfolio is the leading collection of eco-sensitive camps, private game reserves, luxury hotels, secluded beach retreats and renowned wine estates in Africa.

Each experience offers unique accommodation in exclusive destinations. All are privately owned, often owner-managed, and each has their own special personality and style, but what really sets each of these impressive destinations apart is a strong commitment to sustainability. Each destination offers the conscientious traveller an opportunity to enjoy some of Africa’s most incredible landscapes and environments in the knowledge that their stay is also supporting the local communities and protects the area’s ecological heritage.

New online Crib Sheet

New and improved. We are now fully embracing digital information and have created an online version of our much loved CLASSIC CRIB SHEET. This is by far the best snapshot of all you need to know across our hotels, lodges, jungle discoveries and islands escapes. Please help us by saving our precious forests; do not print the Crib Sheet, as this version is integrated into our regular website updates and is best viewed on a regular basis online.

Warmest regards
