What makes us different / special?
Like many of our peers we offer you an easy to use website and experienced travel consultants. There are however two main distinguishing factors that make us different.
1. We also operate and run the RoomsForAfrica.com website and through this website we offer accommodation at over 5000 hotels, guesthouses, B&B's and lodges. RoomsForAfrica.com has also received nearly 10 000 property reviews from our past clients. We are able to draw on this large array of accommodation to supplement our recommendations for StayInAfrica.com and identify hidden or lesser known properties that might otherwise be overlooked. This allows us as a group to independently evaluate our recommendations based on service levels and value for money throughout the year.
2. We know Southern Africa. As part of our belief that Southern Africa is special and that travellers are looking for customizable itineraries, we have spent the past 3 years filming and documenting the different towns and attractions in Southern Africa. By watching our video clips online, you are able to make a more informed decision on what interests you. Not only have we visited these destinations but we have also planned our trips, sought out local specialists in the areas, filmed these adventures and finally edited the videos. In short, we have lived these experiences and can now offer our firsthand knowledge to you.
