However many of these camps or lodges have a difficult time achieving profitable occupancies in the competitive safari tourism market. Furthermore, finding the time to build a distinguishable brand and market the product properly is difficult when so much time and attention is needed to go towards run a good operation. Wildman Safaris has been handling the marketing and reservations for properties that find themselves in this situation for 8 years now with excellent returns for the camps.
We achieve these results by employing the following strategy:
branding & marketing
We establish and develop and distinguished brand, marketing strategy and product targets.
We take on all the web and digital media interfaces and presences to solidify the brand and marketing message.
reservations & invoicing
We handle all the marketing, reservations and invoicing under the product’s brand as well as attending to broader marketing approaches like travel shows, presentations and agent training etc.
We do all of the above on a commission basis only – no monthly fees or retainers.
