Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
MySafariLink.com has been launched as a social networking site for travelers who have been to Africa on safari and for those who wish to learn more about travel to Africa. The new site was created by Fred van der Neut, a South African native and current Houston entrepreneur who is a former game ranger and manager of a safari lodge in Botswana.
“MySafariLink is a social network for Africa enthusiasts who have travelled Africa and those who want to learn more about where to go,” said Van der Neut. “One of the things that has become apparent to me over a lifetime of involvement in the safari industry is that when safari goers return from Africa, they want to tell the world about their experience. MySafariLink provides the venue for users to share their passion for Africa.”
MySafariLink is a community of those who have been on an African safari, those who wish to go and those with commercial safari interests, including booking agents, safari operators, camps and lodges. Membership at MySafariLink is free and users can:
- Create profiles for camps/lodge, guides, booking agents, safari operators, members, guests, etc.
- Review game reserves, countries, bars, hotels, books, etc.
- Create a journal of personal safari experiences to share
- Write and read reviews of camps, lodge, hotels, guides, airlines, etc.
- Write, read and comment on blogs
- Write, read and comment on forums
- Post photos and video
The site content is provided solely by users, and includes a rating system for safari camps and lodges, guides, airlines, hotels, restaurants, booking agents, game reserves and national parks.
Members of the commercial African safari industry can participate on the site by posting details on their products and services. Basic membership is free, and allows safari operators to post a profile and up to three photos. Paid membership levels are also available, which enables safari operators to more fully market their camp, lodge or booking services, as well as:
- Post latest safari news and videos
- Control and validate what is being said about your product or service
- Post travel warnings
- Receive safari itinerary requests and requests for bids
“Safari-goers want to share their safari experience with friends, stay in touch with their guides, and write reviews of the camps and lodges they visited. They instantly become expert and feel a very strong connection to Africa,” said Van der Neut. “MySafariLink.com was created to provide a venue where people can share their Africa experience -- and where the industry can interact to help encourage more people to experience the wonders of Africa.”
