To be included in the Explorers Club portfolio, the property must be warm, welcoming and most importantly have an element of individuality. The property must also have some unique element to it, setting it apart from other holiday rental homes: each property tells its own story whether through its decoration, location or based on the people who have lived there. The emphasis is on interesting, home-away-from-home destinations, discerning, comfortable living (in some cases luxurious) and relaxed fun.
Our mini-expeditions are hand-picked and tried and tested by us. These are wonderful ways in which to reconnect with the natural environment and to share experiences between friends and family, around the warmth of a fire at night, hosted by an exceptional guide.
Over a bottle of wine (or two) and a long lunch.
We wanted to fill a niche in the accommodation (and now adventure) sector and bring a feeling of ‘home-from-home’ to guests arriving from weary travels. We love the idea of quirky and adventurous homes, unique wanderings in Africa, and equally their owners or custodians. It started with our own homes and over time we have collected a myriad of friends and their houses and adventures, to add to the growing collection.
Our logo is the humble postage stamp – iconic symbols of travel and exploration. Knowing every adventurer needs a flag we designed one to represent all the elements the explorer must overcome: sky, water, earth and sun.
With every accommodation being unique we established what makes each property one of a kind. These stories served as the inspiration behind each stamp and were translated into a series of designs: each stamp’s aesthetic determined by its story.
The result? An identity that provides a window into Explorers Club, and each of the properties that form part of it.
We welcome you to come and discover us, off the map.
