Supercharging African safaris

Booking African safaris

Technology solutions company Profitroom Africa announced a new strategic partnership with ResRequest to make bookings and safaris quick and easy.

ResRequest is a South African business management tool for boutique safari lodges and hotels that takes the hassle out of booking safaris offering consumers a seamless and convenient experience.

According to Tricia Wood, Business Development Manager at Profitroom Africa has vast untapped potential in the lodge and safari market. “This partnership will help us unlock it,” says Wood.

An industry reborn

Africa’s tourism industry is bouncing back. Recent statistics from Stats SA show that in  December 2023 South Africa for example, marked a remarkable rebound, with 3.5 million travellers recorded at the country’s ports of entry.

Safaris and lodges play a big role in this resurgence with 68% of all interest in African safaris being shared between South Africa, Kenya, and Tanzania.

Ntando Bhengu, Director of New Business Development at ResRequest says that by integrating Profitroom’s innovative technology solutions with ResRequest’s platform, customers can enjoy a streamlined booking process, ensuring a hassle-free booking experience from start to finish.

Working hand in hand:

ResRequest started to meet a need from safari lodges, coastal resorts, and boutique hotels in remote areas. These establishments needed business management software that would give them the tools they needed to run their properties, make sales, manage their guests, and report on their business.

With the Profitroom-ResRequest partnership, booking an African safari has never been easier. Travellers can expect a user-friendly interface, real-time availability, and some of the best packages and add-ons available. Combine that with secure payment options, and it is easy to see how this partnership will help ensure a stress-free journey into the heart of Africa’s wilderness for millions.
