Minor Hotel Group continues strategic expansion in Africa

Minor Hotel Group has added six camps in Kenya to its growing global portfolio.

This is the result of two of East Africa’s most prestigious property portfolios merging, following the acquisition of Cheli & Peacock Group of Companies by the Elewana Collection.

The acquisition sees the six Cheli & Peacock properties - namely, Elsa’s Kopje, Elephant Pepper Camp, Joy’s Camp, Tortillis Camp, Kitich Camp and Lewa Safari Camp - merge under the banner of the Elewana Collection to form a comprehensive circuit of 14 properties spanning the highlights of Northern Tanzania, Kenya and Zanzibar.

The merger offers operators and agents a seamless experience when booking Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar.

The Cheli & Peacock Portfolio represents six of Kenya’s finest safari lodges and camps located in some of the country’s most iconic parks and conservancies.


The properties are all vastly different in design and geography but they all share the same attitude toward service, social responsibility and community partnerships.

Dillip Rajakarier, chief executive of Minor Hotel Group, commented: “The addition of the six Cheli and Peacock camps to the Elewana Collection represents a really exciting development in Kenya for Minor Hotel Group and our partners.

“The expanded Elewana Collection now offers a portfolio of 14 camps, lodges and boutique beach hotels in Kenya, Tanzania and the island of Zanzibar, providing unparalleled African wildlife-viewing and beach holiday opportunities with an emphasis on stylish and luxurious comfort.”

The addition of the six Cheli and Peacock camps to the Elewana Collection brings MHG’s overall hotel count to 133.

In Africa, MHG now has a portfolio of 25 properties in seven countries across three of its hotel brands – Anantara, AVANI and the Elewana Collection.

A fourth brand will be added later this year when Essque Zalu Zanzibar, which is currently managed by MHG, is rebranded to Per AQUUM.
