Adding a special to your SafariNow listing is one of the best ways to get extra eyes on your page! Fill up your rooms in those quieter seasons by offering a discount or freebie, or secure those peak season bookings far in advance by offering an early bird discount.

REMEMBER: you'll need to name your special under Finishing Touches before you can click Create Special.

  • This step will fall away if you choose the 'freebie only' type in Step 1.
