Classics Map: your trusted resource expands
04 March 2019

MAPPING AFRICA

We can’t believe it’s time to issue the new edition of our much-loved Classics Map! From not that long ago, when we highlighted destinations in 5 African countries, we’re thrilled to say that now we’ve expanded across 12 countries on the continent. Watch this space...

What’s more exciting is that not only does our map represent a growing collection of beautiful and authentic, privately-owned hotels and lodges, but also Classic Portfolio has become a trusted resource for the travel industry through the years. Over and above the map, our WEBSITE is a comprehensive tool to help our travel partners effectively sell and promote Africa, in addition to fact sheets, rates, image libraries and more. Probably the most popular tools that we’ve created are the digitally available CRIB SHEET and the ONLINE AVAILABILITY portal.

With four popular TRADE SHOWS coming up, we’re delighted to say that we’ll be at each show and ready for appointments – look out for Cara at ITB in Berlin this week, and Michelle at ILTM in Cape Town next month, while in May, the whole team will be at Indaba and I will be at We Are Africa with Kimi and Cara.
BOOK INDABA APPOINTMENTS

INDABA MEETINGS the online diary is set to open this week, but we are already arranging meetings. We will have a 180m2 stand with 24 Classics members and partners, so be sure to book all your appointments with us back-to-back to eliminate all the walking and maximise your meeting time.

Mozambique

WHAT WE LOVE: Besides the fact that most of our team are beach fanatics and keen scuba divers, we love the fact that Mozambique is still rather undiscovered. Our Portfolio includes two amazing beach escapes: the Bazaruto Archipelago and the northern Quirimbas Archipelago. Visitors who combine a safari with the more commercial beaches of Mauritius have no idea on how much they are missing out. Mozambique is renowned for its relaxed, tropical atmosphere and exceptionally friendly people, but by far its biggest draw cards are its expansive beaches, secluded islands and spectacular marine life. With a history of limited coastal development combined with beautiful beaches and amazing numbers of whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, turtles, coral fish and reefs. The setting for this experience is hard to beat.

Kwandwe Melton Manor

With sweeping views of the Afromontane Forests, Melton Manor at Kwandwe is a contemporary frontier farmhouse with a modern touch. This sole-use safari villa, where the smallest detail of your stay is planned according to your specific wishes, is perfect for family holidays, parties or groups of friends. 

The welcoming villa with its four en-suite bedrooms are cleverly designed around the central courtyard and its large, inviting swimming pool, while the interiors humorously combine traditional mid 20th century furniture with the latest in South African design.

Our favourite is the interactive farm-style kitchen which invites guests to try a hand at combining flavours under the cheerful guidance of their personal chef or if the guests would rather have a more relaxing time, they can simply watch as the chef cooks up wholesome and delicious snacks whenever they want.
