With the backing of Glenda Paterson, previous director of the “Cape Hotels” portfolio, this has truly become a hospitality success story.

These establishments all pass the value-for-money test, with its inherent stringent criteria, and all are situated in localities which offer much in the way of ‘things to do’ and sight-seeing attractions. At all locations, you’ll enjoy fine restaurants, great wines, exciting adventure activities, magnificent scenery, friendly locals and loads of interesting things to see and do.

In 2016, Enslin broadened the variety of accommodations & experiences, but maintaining the size of the portfolio by adding properties in the Northern Cape, Namibia as well as Zambia.

By adding these areas to the portfolio, Enslin’s vision was to give more of a variety to Tour Operators and Tourist to experience Southern Africa and all it has to offer from 3 and 4 star Resorts, Hotels, Guesthouses and Lodges to 5 Star luxury Travel experiences to blend them all in for a true variety of accommodation and experiences.

The A&E portfolio is truly a unique collection of privately owned Accommodation and Experiences in Southern Africa’s hotspots.

Great accommodation plus the addition of thoughtful personal touches, friendly advice, and those caring extra miles that can only come from involved owners and dedicated staff, make your stay particularly rewarding
