The positioning of African Phoenix Guest Lodge (AP) is based on the legendary Arabian bird icon, the Phoenix.  The Phoenix distinguishing characteristics are uniqueness, continuous rebirth, vigour and rising above the rest. It embodies strength, courage and the ability to soar to greater heights, in addition to its mystical powers.  Africaness is associated with Ubuntu (we are who we are because of others) – the humanity in us, spirituality, hospitality, sharing and birth of human kind. The African Phoenix additional attributes are mystic beauty and rhythmic soul found nowhere else.  This is what the AP brand stands for.

The goal of African Phoenix Guest Lodge, Spa, Conference and Business Centre (AP) is to become The First Choice Boutique Hotel Style Guest Lodge in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni and in Gauteng. The unique selling proposition for AP is the intimate one stop shop product offering - a true African experience with first world infrastructure.

AP will remain uncompromising on the highest standards of comfort and service, expected in a five star type hospitality establishment.
