TravelCube Adds 170 African Properties in 12 Countries

TravelCube has introduced 170 3-star to 5-star hotels from 12 countries in Africa – Algeria, Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Tunisia and Zambia – as well as 44 in South Africa and 35 in Morocco, two of TravelCube’s most popular destinations.

More than half (58%) are in sub-Saharan destinations, where visitors can enjoy a range of experiences whether cultural, heritage, ecological, culinary, rural or community-based.

Paul Hewer, Head of Sales TravelCube UK & Ireland, said: “We scour the globe for tens of thousands of accommodation options, destination services, attractions and experiences. We connect businesses to this vast portfolio through our retail booking site, TravelCube.com, which makes it easy for them to successfully market and sell travel to consumers.

“Our wealth of experience, privileged relationships and the expertise of locally employed account managers mean travel businesses trust us to find opportunities that will help them profit.”

Among accommodation on the new list:

  • 4-star Far Hills Country Hotel, George, overlooking the Outeniqua mountains and in the heart of South Africa’s Garden Route. A great base to explore white, sandy beaches and forest walks, wild animal sanctuaries and charming nearby towns.
  • Marrakech’s 5-star Sofitel Lounge & Spa hotel from where you can explore the bustling Medina and the Djemaa el Fna square, just 10 minutes from the hotel, or relax at the So Spa and swimming pool.
  • The 3-star Peermont Metcourt Inn in The Grand Palm resort in Gaborone, Southern Botswana. Stay there to visit locations from The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, to enjoy a wide range of sports from boating and cricket to volleyball and yachting, or as a base to explore rural Africa and its wildlife.
  • 3.5-star Casa Piccolo Guest House, a 16-bedroom pension in one of Windhoek’s oldest suburbs offering poolside relaxation under Namibia’s ‘big sky’. A photographer’s dream, Namibia offers seascapes, mountains and deserts, and enough wildlife and city life to keep visitors busy.

The 170 new additions recognise the increasing potential of Africa for travel and tourism, particularly sub-Saharan nations unaffected by the Arab Spring.
