Leading luxury experiential travel company &Beyond has once again been awarded the Best Outdoor Stand at Indaba 2015, held in Durban from 9 to 11 May.
True to &Beyond’s core ethos of Care of the Land, Care of the Wildlife, Care of the People, the stand, which was designed by Fox Browne Creative, boasts a sustainable theme and is constructed predominantly of environmentally friendly material. With all wood selected for its sustainable farming credentials, all furniture used on the stand is to be recycled for use on other &Beyond projects.
In keeping with &Beyond’s renowned brand of warm hospitality, the food served on the stand celebrated each of the company’s lodges and the regions in which they are situated, with a focus on organically grown and artisanal ingredients.
&Beyond’s focus at Indaba this year was on its continuing investments into its award-winning safari camps and lodges. The company’s stand featured images of the recently refurbished &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge in Botswana and &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp in Kenya, as well as sneak previews of &Beyond Benguerra Island in Mozambique, which is due to reopen in June 2015. As with the stand, &Beyond has focused on the use of sustainable energy at the refurbished lodges, with the inclusion of solar energy plants.
