City Lodge Maputo gets underway


The City Lodge Hotel Group has begun the development of a 148-room City Lodge Hotel in Maputo (Mozambique) as part of its targeted African expansion programme.

Initial site works for the hotel began in late January and it is expected to open in the second quarter of 2018, taking the group’s number of hotels to 61, which will include three in Kenya, one in Tanzania, one in Botswana and one in Namibia, complementing 54 hotels in South Africa across the Courtyard Hotel, City Lodge Hotel, Town Lodge and Road Lodge brands.

City Lodge Hotel Maputo will feature seven storeys and a basement and will have four meeting rooms, a mini-gym and a swimming pool.

The group is currently developing three other new hotels in Africa: the 172-room City Lodge Hotel Two Rivers in Nairobi (Kenya), the 147-room City Lodge Hotel Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, and the 147-room Town Lodge Windhoek (Namibia).
