A & E Marketing – Retainer based marketing of your property / Activity / Restaurant to the Tour Operator Market.

A&E Marketing Southern Africa offers more than 50 years’ experience in the African Travel industry.

A&E Marketing Southern Africa brings you a portfolio of unique Accommodation and Experiences.

Enslin van Schalkwyk, director of A&E Marketing Southern Africa, took over the company “Cape Hotels Portfolio” in 2016. With his young and vibrant outlook, he immediately changed the name of the company to A&E Marketing Southern Africa – “A” referring to accommodation and “E” to experiences.

Enslin van Schalkwyk has been in hospitality since 2010 and has managed successful guesthouses in Eastern Cape and Garden Route as well as Reservations Manager based in Cape Town relocating corporate clients at various apartments in the CBD. Enslin van Schalkwyk has also spent time as a Game Ranger at a 4-star lodge in the Garden Route to interact more with the tourists and his love for nature.

With the backing of the previous director of the “Cape Hotels portfolio”, this has indeed become a hospitality success story. The previous director had vast experience of working with the giants of accommodation excellence, Holiday Inns and Sun International. Using her training and experience, A&E Marketing now consists of a wealth of exquisite, privately owned and managed Hotels, Guest Houses and Activities throughout Southern Africa. These all pass the value-for-money test, with its stringent inherent criteria, and all are situated in localities which offer much in the way of ‘things to do’ and sightseeing attractions. At all locations, you’ll enjoy fine restaurants, great wines, exciting adventure activities, magnificent scenery, friendly locals and loads of exciting things to see and do.

Enslin’s vision is to give more of a variety to Tour Operators and Tourists 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 real variety of accommodation and experiences. In 2022 he extended the portfolio by including more activities and also restaurants. This move has been well accepted by the trade.

The A&E Portfolio is truly a stunning collection of privately owned Accommodation and Experiences in South Africa’s hotspots.
