[ANNOUNCEMENT] Working through COVID-19
02 March 2020


COVID-19: Talk to us

It has been the talk of the town and we simply can't ignore it any longer.
Our response? Let's be flexible, let's communicate, and let's keep travelling.

We acknowledge there is uncertainty around current bookings as well as planning new trips. While there is very little we can do to change the global impact of COVID-19, we do believe that we should be doing as much as possible to encourage people to still travel.

As we stand in this together, the Classic Portfolio members will be flexible with deposit payments, cancellation policies and confirmation dates.
Check in with us for the individual members' amended booking T&C's.

While the current impact across our Portfolio is low. Through communication and collaboration, we remain open to working together for the best outcomes for your business and our Classic Portfolio members. When you secure new bookings, we benefit. Let us know how we can help in closing those deals.

I am off to India on Saturday and will be washing my hands and taking extra immune boosters. I feel the need to live by what I am asking other travellers to do and look forward to sharing my adventures from Kashmir with you.

Connect with us

While we all have to take this disease seriously, the repercussions of not travelling will be disastrous. Let's keep supporting each other to continue conserving and protecting wild places in Africa.

Warm regards

And finally, what about those masks? If you are healthy, they are widely regarded as a waste of time when travelling, unless you are adhering to IUCN protocol for gorilla tracking. Let us stay informed and pragmatic.

WHAT WE LOVE: The big open spaces, incredible dark skies at night, landscapes that take your breath away and the desert climate that makes for fantastic photography. Namibia is a country of many cultures, stories, and history. One of the highlights of this mostly desert country is the NamibRand Nature Reserve. With its own set of stories that tell of perseverance, commitment, passion, and success, we are thrilled to represent the Premier Camps in the Wolwedans Collection.


Giraffe Manor

Giraffe Manor is a peaceful retreat to start or end a safari in East Africa and has become an icon of Nairobi’s historical landscape, and with just 12 luxury rooms, it is one of the most exclusive places to stay in the city. Located in the leafy suburbs of Langata on a 140-acre sanctuary of indigenous forest, Giraffe Manor offers a unique opportunity to meet the resident giraffe, all of whom are the endangered Rothschild's giraffe subspecies.
