Three Cities’ new Exceptional Safaris company offers a neat, turnkey management and marketing solution to southern African game lodges that will benefit from the group’s extensive hospitality management experience. Three Cities CEO Mike Lambert said, “We operate lodges in some of southern Africa’s most sought after bush landscapes and are well acquainted with what it takes for them to be successful.”
Although a management company, Three Cities offers a wide range of services that include sales, marketing and central reservations facilities. They also have the ability to ‘white label’ central reservations and tailor the product to a specific hotel group.
Four regional and international sales teams, a complete marketing department, a fully integrated central reservations system, IT facilities, strong financial and HR support, access to the group’s International Hotel School, assistance with procurement and a hotel and lodge development arm are all services lodges will receive with Exceptional Safaris.
Additionally, game lodges will benefit from Three Cities’ high calibre professionals. The group’s experienced general managers are further supported by operations managers, operations directors and a group executive chef. Well established operating procedures and an in-house certified energy engineer also add value.
Lambert said, “Exceptional Safaris will enable lodges to leverage off Three Cities’ well-rounded expertise to streamline and grow their business, provide the best possible service to their guests and also to comply with other important aspects of the industry such as responsible tourism and skills development.”
Three Cities has 24 years of successful hospitality management experience under its belt and has managed 30 four and five star properties in southern Africa including game lodges in South Africa and further afield in Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. With this proven track record it is well placed to provide their Exceptional Safari’s service to the game lodge industry.
