Just one week after its launch, LekkeSlaap.co.za is trailblazing the way for Afrikaans on the internet. LekkeSlaap.co.za is the first completely Afrikaans online accommodation booking website to hit cyberspace and is the first of its kind in the country. The site is already proving to be a runaway success and has become one of the top Afrikaans brands on Facebook with more than 27 500 Facebook fans and thousands of unique visitors to www.lekkeslaap.co.za. Now that’s what we call lekke!
LekkeSlaap.co.za opened its virtual doors to South Africans last week and since then the site has gone from strength to strength, revolutionising online accommodation booking as we know it. Thousands of Afrikaans travel enthusiasts from within our country’s borders and beyond have benefited from this pioneering new site offering everything from a luxury hotel in Johannesburg, a relaxing beach-front house in Mosselbay to an intimate cottage in the bushveld.
“The reaction from the public has been overwhelmingly positive and we have been showered with compliments from satisfied users,” says LekkeSlaap’s marketing manager Denise Neethling. “We 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.”
LekkeSlaap is brought to you by the same team that founded the award-winning TravelGround.com which last year scooped the coveted award for Best Design, Standards and Ease of use at the 2012 eCommerce Awards. And it seems the new Afrikaans sister-site is following in its English counterpart’s footsteps, with the current influx of inquiries and positive feedback proving the success of the site.
