Orange Collection (Solomon's Guide) Launches First Print Edition Under New Branding

Formerly known as Solomon’s Guide, Orange Collection is Southern Africa’s longest running travel guide with more than 40 annual editions published since 1971. In this newest edition, Orange Collection has launched a fresh look to go with its streamlined focus on properties for the MICE trade and group travel.

Travel Industry Wire We’ve heard from tour operators and PCOs about the need for one reference point that focuses on the larger properties that are key to their industry. Something that tells them at a glance how many conference delegates a venue can host or what special facilities they have for events. Orange Collection is that reference point. It gives you all the information at your fingertips on a variety of platforms that will suit your every need.

We wanted to make it younger, fresher and more relevant to specific areas of the travel industry where we have identified a gap in the market.”

The Solomon’s Guide iPad app was the first accommodation app in South Africa. Our new Orange Collection app allows for offline browsing and online booking.

Ian says: “My father built the foundation of Solomon’s Guide on his years spent travelling around the country and personally visiting many of these venues. As successful as it has been, the time is now right to update the brand. I have no doubt that this is a step in the right direction for Orange Collection, and I look forward to where we’ll be taking the brand in 2014.”
