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.

South Africa

WHAT WE LOVE: Many of our team are South African and we are all extremely passionate about the country, its people, wildlife and scenic beauty – who would not be with an office in the Cape winelands! But most of all we are proud of what South Africa has achieved and the challenges we have overcome. It is a country that has diversity as its hallmark. From lush forests, vast savannahs, beautiful beaches, arid semi-desert, dramatic mountain ranges to its cosmopolitan cities, ‘Big Five’ wildlife reserves, winelands, gourmet restaurants and colourful shanty towns: South Africa has all any visitor could ask for. Strong on adventure, sport, nature and wildlife, it is also a pioneer and global leader in responsible tourism.

Tanda Tula Field Camp

Launched March 2014, Tanda Tula Field Camp is a first of its kind in South Africa. It is a non-permanent explorer-styled tented camp that has been considered the most environmentally friendly camp in South Africa. "Treading softly on the surface of the earth" is a foundation principle of everything that Tanda Tula stands for, and a principle that is echoed throughout each element of the new field camp experience. The Field Camp has evolved to meet the growing requirement in the market for privacy and exclusivity, in one of the few remaining private wilderness areas forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Tanda Tula Field Camp is a unique safari experience unlike any other. Consisting of four custom designed tents, with en-suite open air bush bathrooms and a communal mess tent, Tanda Tula Field Camp draws on the traditions of the classic East African safari with detailed campaign style furniture and soft furnishings from the Cape, North Africa, and Zanzibar. The field camp is set up and taken down for each safari, making it the ultimate eco-friendly camp, designed for minimum energy consumption and ground impact.  The camp caters for between 2 and 8 guests on an exclusive-use basis only. Guests are hosted by some of the industry's leading iconic guides who accompany them on an extraordinary journey of exploration and adventure.
