A new collection of 5-star boutique hotels, eco-lodges, game reserves and luxury houseboats plus a bespoke tour-operating division are now being marketed under the AccorHotels banner in a strategic partnership with the South Africa-based Mantis Group.
Accor says the deal reinforces its position as a leader in curated one-of-a-kind experiences and resonates with the group’s conservation platform with Planet 21.
The partnership is accompanied by the launch of Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA), a non-profit organisation aiming to amplify both companies’ commitment to preventing the accelerating decline of Africa’s wildlife.
Accor chairman and CEO Sébastien Bazin said: “Mantis is a pioneer in customised one-of-a-kind travel services in some of the most imaginative hotels across the world.
“With this partnership, we are reinforcing the group’s footprint in Africa and we have access to a brand with strong roots and heritage, recognised for its commitment to preserve the environment and prestigious credentials in hospitality space.”
The Mantis network features 28 managed properties plus a global network of branded hotels and residences, including Founders Lodge, a South African game reserve in the Eastern Cape, Mantis St Helena on the South Atlantic island and the Draycott Hotel in London.
