AFRICA'S INCLUSIVE TRADE SHOW

INDABA remains a trade show that is truly representative and inclusive of the wider African tourism industry. While the date change may have caused uncertainty around this event, as one of the largest exhibitors, Classic Portfolio remains committed to our attendance and support of Indaba.

For 2019 our stand is set to be everything you've come to enjoy and more. With 24 sharing members and partners representing over 60 camps, lodges and island experiences across 12 African countries, we are the one-stop stand for creative itinerary building and the place to enjoy a glass of Delaire Graff wine at our bar.

CLASSIC CRIB SHEET
This is by far the best snapshot of all you need to know across our hotels, lodges, jungle discoveries and island escapes. Please save the environment and do not print.

São Tomé and Príncipe

Príncipe is an adventure. A tiny island topped by a canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, join us to discover this magnificent lost world, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkelling, fishing and birdwatching.

As the smaller, northern major island of the country of São Tomé and Príncipe lying off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, Príncipe has an area of 136 square kilometres (53 sq mi) and a population of approximately 7,000. The island is a heavily eroded volcano speculated to be over three million years old. Here you will discover a place that time forgot and where you feel you have stepped off the edge of the world. It is distinctively West African with a very strong Portuguese influence and this gives it a rhythm of its own which sets it apart from any experiences in East and Southern African.

Kwandwe Uplands Homestead

Uplands Homestead strikes a perfect mix between the genteel and the wild. The elegant and refined interiors, with their damask linens, antique silver and porcelain, create the ideal foil for the rugged bushveld and wildlife outside. Furnished with authentic antiques and memorabilia reminiscent of a stately Settler home from the 1820s, stylish modern comforts have been added, such as exquisitely appointed bathrooms, air conditioning, private verandas for each suite and a contemporary farmstyle kitchen. There is also a full size swimming pool and gazebo set amongst rolling lawns, surrounded on all sides by sweeping slopes decorated with hundreds of aloes.

The heart of any farmhouse is its kitchen, and Uplands is no exception. With its wrought iron chandeliers and modern catering equipment cleverly represented as traditional cookware, the Uplands kitchen is the Homestead’s quaint and welcoming core. Your dedicated, skilled chef will create both old family favourites and sumptuous new dishes to inspire and delight. Meals are served in the dining area, where friends and family gather to share the day’s adventures. Plush chairs in the sitting room invite hours of relaxation, while the green lawns and sparkling pool create a perfect outlet for youthful energy.

Three suites with private bathrooms combine modern comfort with old-fashioned luxury and attention to detail. Antique mirrors, claw-foot bathtubs and yellowwood chests and wardrobes blend seamlessly with air-conditioning, in-room safes and other modern conveniences. Your dedicated 4x4 safari vehicle and private guide/ranger awaits outside, ready at any time to take you on a voyage of discovery through Kwandwe’s wild open spaces and return you to the warmly lit comfort of your Home away from Home.
