Hilton is planning to open 14 Hilton Garden Inn branded properties in Africa over the next three years.

It currently has four of the mid-scale brand properties in Morocco, Kenya, Zambia and Botswana with a total of almost 800 rooms.

Speaking from Africa’s Travel Indaba, John Greenleaf, global head, Hilton Garden Inn said: “We have positioned Hilton Garden Inn for success in Africa with a prototype developed specifically for the region. This prototype has been curated to meet the expectations of both travellers and owners throughout Africa, while maintaining the brand’s signature light, bright and airy design as well as the consistent, core guest offerings and amenities that the brand is recognised for around the world.”

The brand is planning for almost 2,400 rooms across four hotels in Africa with Hilton Garden Inn Kampala in Uganda and Hilton Garden Inn Mbabane in Swaziland due to open this month.

Hilton Garden Inn Windhoek in Namibia is due to open later this year.
