Meet LekkeSlaap.co.za,Â the first completely Afrikaans online accommodation booking website and the first of its kind in the country.
Since it’s launch last week, the site thatÂ is trailblazing the way for Afrikaans on the internet,Â is already proving to be a success and has become one of the top Afrikaans brands on Facebook with more than 27 500 Facebook fans and thousands of unique visitors.
Thousands of Afrikaans travelÂ enthusiasts both inside and outside South Africa have benefited from the new service offering a variety of accommodation types including luxury hotels, beach-front houses and cottages that can be filtered by province, city or popular tourist destination.
LekkeSlaap is user-friendly and offers a unique online Afrikaans experience. While users can easily search, click, choose, book and confirmÂ convenientlyÂ online, there are also Afrikaans speaking agents ready to help.
â€œThe reaction from the public has been overwhelmingly positive and we have been showered with compliments from satisfied users,â€ says LekkeSlaap’s Marketing Manager Denise Neethling. â€œWe are very excited about LekkeSlaap and proud to offer a lekke online accommodation booking service to the Afrikaans community, something they’ve been deprived of until now.â€
LekkeSlaap is brought to you by the same team that founded the award-winningÂ TravelGround.com which last year took the coveted award forÂ Best Design, Standards and Ease of useÂ at the 2012 eCommerce Awards.
