Travel Butlers Report Surge in Families Choosing Safari Lodges

Surrey, United Kingdom (20 July, 2012) – Travel Butlers Ltd, a leading African Safari holiday specialist, announce they have received an influx in families booking safari lodges.

Travel Butlers has reportedly seen a surge in bookings over the last four weeks, and have stated that they are up by 60% in comparison to the same period in 2011. The sales boost is most likely due to a sharp increase in people opting for last minute holidays in order to escape the dreary UK weather, as well as taking advantage of the latest special offers.

Travel Butlers’ bookings were a little slow at the beginning of the year, but the increase in custom demonstrates that many people have postponed booking a holiday until later in the year. This could possibly be due to many people not wanting to miss out on the exciting celebrations and sporting events happening in the UK this summer.

A spokesperson for Travel Butlers commented: “The slowdown in bookings at the start of the year has ultimately led to increased booking for hotel and safari lodges, as many people have taken advantage of our special offers which were created in a bid to avoid empty rooms from July to September. The relentless rain has seemingly persuaded many people to book a holiday, and our June bookings were at the same level we saw in January – which is usually the busiest month of the year.”
