The Prize

Your trip begins in the immaculately restored Mantis No5 Boutique Art Hotel. Located less than 10 minutes from Port Elizabeth International Airport, No5 is nestled in the affluent Summerstrand suburb, away from the hustle and bustle, yet an easy stroll to the ocean which is less than 150 metres away. 

Setting the precedent in Port Elizabeth for luxury accommodation and service, the 10 suites are complemented by a fine dining restaurant and private dining cellar, whiskey and cigar lounge, private cinema, privately-owned art collection and CSpa Wellness by Camelot Spa.

After the two-night stay at No5, you will make your way to Mantis Founder’s Lodge. Set atop a hill with panoramic views of the lodge surrounds and only an hour outside Port Elizabeth, it was once the home of conservation pioneer and Mantis founder, Adrian Gardiner. Upon arrival, guests are welcomed by rhino and a number of other smaller species. The intimate 6-suite lodge is designed to give guests a sense of belonging and provides the privacy to enjoy the vast landscape and endless African sky.

Tucked away on a 400ha game conservancy, the lodge features a boma (specialist animal enclosure), steam room and two swimming pools. The Founder’s Museum is complete with array of Adrian Gardiner’s unique memorabilia and photographs collected on his many journeys, a priceless amaXhosa bead collection and small curio shop. Other features include a bar with Billiards table, drawing room with fireplace, library, dining area, casual dining terrace and gym, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi.

Big 5 game drives takes place on the Shamwari Game Reserve with guided nature walks in the safety of the Founders conservancy.
