Tea at The Cape Grace
"If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you." William Ewart Gladstone. As such, afternoon tea is being served at the Cape Grace Hotel, accommodated by tiny sophisticated sandwiches and miniature desserts. While no one knows quite when the tradition was invented, Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, is credited with its widespread popularity. Complaining about the long wait between lunch and dinner, she remedied the 'sinking feeling' she felt with a pot of tea, bread, butter, and cakes. The ritual proved so popular that soon, all of London's most fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon. The ritual of Tea at the Cape Grace is a welcome respite from a full day of touring.
Return to Chikwenya
Chikwenya Camp, located on one of the most beautiful sites in Africa, will be re-opening in April 2019. Set in Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park, the camp overlooks a game-rich floodplain leading to the broad Zambezi River, with a backdrop provided by the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment. Many past clients of Classic Africa will have fond memories of Chickwenya and we are thrilled that this special property will be back in our portfolio.
The Kosher River Club
Burchells, a new family cottage, will open at Three Tree Hill Lodge, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, in response to an increased demand for adventurous, active family holidays. In 1811 William John Burchell set off from Cape Town on a 4-year, 4,400 mile journey of scientific exploration in Africa. When he returned to Cape Town in April 1815, he had amassed 63,000 plant & animal specimens and 500 drawings. His epic journey inspired the new addition to Three Tree Hill. The two-bedroomed family cottage has been designed to capture the spectacular view of Spioenkop Game Reserve and Mountain, embracing nature and transporting guests through time with a naturalist-explorer theme.
