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.

Zambia

WHAT WE LOVE: Having done safaris all over Africa our whole team agrees that Zambia is still one of the most sensational and authentic safari experiences. As the home of walking safaris this is one of the best places to get out of the vehicle and do a safari on foot. Hailed as Africa’s ‘diamond in the rough’ or even ‘the warm heart of Africa’, Zambia is a country blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, a huge variety of wildlife and an abundance of birdlife, huge water bodies (including 17 magnificent waterfalls) and great tracts of pristine bushveld. It has also been acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world, whose inhabitants are known for being warm and welcoming. It is a landlocked country, sharing its borders with Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Angola to the east, Namibia and Zimbabwe to the south, and Mozambique and Malawi to the east. It even shares a 2km border with Botswana!

Forest Chem Chem

'Kuungana' means 'to connect' in Swahili and this is the essence of Forest Chem Chem. The camp has been designed to bring people together over the warmth of the crackling campfire. It is a place for families and friends to connect with each other, with the bush, with Africa and with themselves.

Here, guests will discover even more opportunities to explore the game-rich areas bordering Tarangire National Park and Lake Burunge. Forest Chem Chem is only available on an exclusive use basis with 3 vintage tents and 1 family tent. The camp comfortably sleeps up to 8 adults and 2 children. With exclusivity comes complete freedom! Forest Chem Chem is the opportunity to experience a bush camp of your own. Here, in the heart of Tanzania, are some of the most densely populated wildlife areas the country has to offer. This is due to the proximity to not one, but two national parks, and the resurrection of an ancient migratory corridor through this land as a result of the conservation work by the Chem Chem Association.
