AccorHotels has signed a strategic partnership with the South Africa-based Mantis Group, a collection of privately owned five star properties and lodges located around the world.
From boutique hotels, eco lodges, game reserves, luxury houseboats, adventure tourism as well as bespoke tour operating division, the agreement reinforces AccorHotels as a leader in curated one-of-a-kind experiences.
The Mantis network features 28 managed properties, plus a global network of branded hotels and residences, including boutique villas and flagship properties such as Founders Lodge – a South African game reserve located in the Eastern Cape.
Celebrated for its far flung experiences for the adventure curious, the Mantis Group also owns and operates a number of unique luxury houseboats and a lodge under the Zambezi Queen Collection brand.
This strategic partnership will strengthen AccorHotels’ leadership position in Africa and will combine the vision of embodying conservation and education into its operations.
Highlights of Mantis’ success in conservation include the support and sponsorship of initiatives for the Wilderness Foundation Africa, Tusk Trust and various other conservation NGOs.
