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.

Namibia

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.

Old Mondoro

About an hour east downstream by boat from sister camp Chiawa, Old Mondoro is located in the wonderfully open area of Faidherbia Forest. The camp is a far simpler affair that Chiawa yet the guiding levels, activity choice, service and excellent home-cooking remain are par.

The comfortable rooms are strung out along a hippo-friendly channel off the Zambezi, enjoying great views with their half-height walls and small decks.  Activities at Old Mondoro focus on game drives and boating, though the elephant and hippo activity around camp are enough to encourage a lodge-based safari! Tasty meals are served fireside or in the open-sided thatched dining room, and star-gazing in this remote spot makes a perfect pastime.
