How Travel Ground Provides Convenience In Booking Accommodation Online. Every year, Travel Ground books hundreds of thousands of people into fantastic accommodations and it is growing at a rapid pace. The company is building the easiest way to find and book accommodation across South Africa and Namibia. TravelGround.com, along with its sister website, LekkeSlaap.co.za, partner with over 26,000 local accommodation establishments to market their accommodation online. The company has currently a team of over 70 people and it is also a proud product of Tripco.
Travel Ground was started by David McLennan, Jonathan Womersley, Justin Womersley, Marcel van de Ghinste, and Nick Smit. These South Africans have a shared passion for exploring their country. This led to many, often frustrating, hours spent trying to find the right accommodation via the web, unsure of which sites’ reviews they could trust and stymied by confusing web pages. They felt that there had to be a better way, and in 2008 they set out to build the perfect accommodation search website. The result is Travel Ground, the best way to find and book accommodation anywhere in South Africa. The company already has thousands of establishments across South Africa of all types and sizes on its system and it has received excellent feedback from them.
