SafariNow, South Africa’s largest online accommodation booking site, has launched a nifty new feature that takes the hassle out of discovering new places to go when you’re feeling a bit indecisive. Using the power of social search, SafariNow’s Destination Inspiration Finder shows top destinations based on various interest themes as rated by SafariNow travellers who have actually been to the destinations.
“It’s all about personal preference and helping travellers discover new places based on the type of holiday they’re in the mood for. If someone is in the mood for a hiking holiday, but they’re not sure where to go, then the Top Hiking Destinations page would share the most popular destinations according to travellers who have already stayed there,” says Matthew Swart, CEO of SafariNow.
Some of the more popular themes include top destinations for beach, art, spa, wildlife, surfing and golfing holidays. The top 11 categories are presented on SafariNow’s home page, but travellers can search over 200 categories for further inspiration – including the top destinations for star gazing, dolphins, shipwrecks, ziplining, ghost tours…and even fresh country air. In addition, the Top Weekend Getaways Near Me feature allows travellers to see top destinations based on where they are travelling from.
“On our site alone there are more than 19,000 establishments to choose from. The search results that are presented by the Destination Inspiration Finder are far more social and match the independent reviews of previous customers to a user’s personal interests in ranking order.
