Jozini Tiger Lodge & Spa will be joining the Dream Hotels and Resorts’ family from March 2018. The mixed-use accommodation group will take over the management contract of the lodge, in which the local community has a significant shareholding.
The agreement will allow Dream Hotels and Resorts to further expand the group’s footprint in KwaZulu Natal, and brings the number of hotels and resorts within its portfolio to 21 countrywide.
Says Brent Dickson, Director, Dream Hotels and Resorts: “Our long-term strategy is to increase our involvement with local community projects and empower these communities in sustainable ways. By investing in properties and initiatives around South Africa, we not only create much-needed employment, but we also contribute to the upliftment and upskilling of these communities. This is a collaborative effort and a partnership that we feel is mutually beneficial.”
Dream Hotels and Resorts has experience working with local communities at both Tala Collection Private Game Reserve and Nibela Lake Lodge in KwaZulu Natal as well as Mthimkhulu Wilderness Trails near the Kruger National Park in Limpopo. “We look forward to welcoming the community at Jozini Tiger Lodge to the Dream Hotels & Resorts family,” adds Dickson.
