Lonrho has historically been a major participant in the luxury hotel market through its Metropole and Princess brands. It was within Africa that Lonrho Hotels led the market with such iconic luxury hotels as the Norfolk and Nairobi Safari Club in Kenya as well as the Labadi Beach Hotel in Ghana.
Until recently the Hotel Cardoso in Maputo, Mozambique, was the only remaining Lonrho Hotel. Acquisition of Leopard Rock Hotel & Championship Golf Course and the opening of Grand Karavia have reignited Lonrho Hotel’s appetite for growth. Lonrho Hotels is now committed to establishing luxury and easy Hotels in the high growth destinations of Africa.
