About us


A Technology & Travel company


We're a technology company started by Den Ashbolt and Duncan Houston in 2002. We specialise in the travel and entertainment sectors, with the goal of changing the way we travel.

We launched RoomsForAfrica early in the online travel space, back in the days of slow dial-up connections and waiting for images to load, when you could count the number of online shoppers on one hand. Thankfully things have changed and RoomsForAfrica has since grown to become a well known and trusted travel brand.

Our travel portfolio has since grown with the creation of a number of industry leading websites in the car rental (justcarhire.co.za), restaurants (wininganddining.co.za), activities (funguru.co.za) and outbound travel (simplytravel.co.za) sectors.

We are excited about the way technology is changing our lives and how it changes the way we travel. Today broadband is a given, smartphones are everywhere and small images have thankfully been replaced by interactive virtual tours and streaming video. Leveraging technological opportunities is the cornerstone of our business and we are constantly striving to improve the way we travel. Technologies keep evolving and we're loving the journey!

Collaboration and integration are becoming easier and easier. Companies are specialising and developing their own niches, and cooperation is increasingly a key to future success. We are always looking to collaborate with like-minded people and businesses. If you can see an opportunity, let's chat.
