In the words of Jada Pinkett Smith: “Often we applaud the trails people blaze in the external world that we can see, and very rarely do we applaud the trails that are blazed in the hidden rooms of the mind” where the decisions to go against the grain take place. The kind that make life rich for ourselves, our families, and the world at large.
From the second you start fantasizing about your dream holiday; Mantis would like to accompany you as you blaze the trail for your family. Travelling is fun, and who says you cannot be an environmental activist from the comfort of 500-thread Egyptian cotton sheets overlooking a golden stretch of private beach reserved only for your pleasure….you can!
Drink good wine!
Yes yes, it’s always 5’o clock somewhere in the world; but here is an even better reason to indulge in the delicious range of CCFA wines available at all Mantis hotels and eco-escapes. ZAR 5.00 of every bottle of wine purchased from this special range goes back to the Community Conservation Fund Africa and directly into community upliftment programmes and efforts to cease the war on wildlife.
Luxuriate in the best personal care
From outdoor showers overlooking wild savannahs to oversized bathtubs and massages under the African sun. Our hotels and eco-escapes provide only the best Healing Earth amenities. The products are 100% biodegradable and optimise the healing power of Africa’s rich natural resources, and the value of embracing earth-, animal- and people-friendly well being solutions.
Spoil the kids
Take a bit of Africa home with you in the most ethical and adorable fashion! Adopt a plush rhino toy at any Mantis property for a small donation to CCFA. True to CCFA’s mission to uplift poor communities; these handmade toys are produced by the community of Kylemore outside Stellenbosh, WC.
Each has an individual character which allows their purpose and personality to come alive. Each line of plush toys is named after rhinos that have fallen in the attack against this cornerstone species; a plight that is symbolic of the greater war we are fighting to conserve the natural world.
