Are you a wildebeest (follows the herd) or a giraffe (creates a journey)?
If you are a giraffe read on. If you are a wildebeest, head back to your inbox.

For creative journey planners, we are delighted to advise that our CLASSICS AVAILABILITY PORTAL has evolved to drive easy itinerary building across 15 individual reservation systems. You can access 45 camps, lodges and villas, underpinned by conservation and long term sustainability, and start your itinerary planning across 11 African countries.

No time zone delays. Build itineraries with live availability any time of the day and any day of the week.

  1. 45 CAMPS & LODGES | 11 COUNTRIES - giving you availability access to Africa's finest collection of privately owned, unique experiences (we are working on the 2 missing res system links with Legendary Expeditions and Blue Safari Seychelles).

  2. SIMPLE: TICK ONE - a whole portfolio of availability calendars can be overwhelming to look at, select (tick one box) the individual camp/lodge you are interested in and see that as a stand-alone view.

  3. ITINERARY: TICK MULTIPLE - when building an itinerary across our Portfolio, select (tick multiple boxes) your camps/lodges and view availability across a date and camp range to assist with crafting the perfect trip.

  4. GET IT FIRST: EMAIL REQUEST - once you find your availability pop an email to the different reservations teams to request your dates (watch this space, we have some cool ideas on how to make the request process even smoother).

  5. DIRECT OR DMC - it's up to you! Either connect with our members individually or work through your preferred DMC. We honour all booking channels and remain fully committed to supporting you all the way.

Watch out for more updates in the coming year. We continue to embrace technology and have big plans for 2020... including further streamlining of the hold space request process and suggested itineraries linked to availability.
I am a GIRAFFE ... love this availability
If you have read this far you are most certainly a giraffe.
Happy portal browsing and journey planning!

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.


Gomoti Plains & Gomoti Private

Named after the nearby Gomoti River, Gomoti Plains and Gomoti Private are on one of the smaller flood plains of the Gomoti River system. This exclusive area is known for its large concentrations of wildlife which thrive on the Gomoti plains and waterways.
