WHO WE ARE
Safari Hotels is a privately owned company division of Safari Developments. Safari Hotels properties trade under the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts brands such as Ramada, LQ Hotels and Tryp.
Safari Hotels offers management and marketing/distribution expertise and services to independently owned hotels who wish to take advantage of the benefits of belonging to a hotel chain with a well recognised brand name and proven performance. Safari Hotel’s infrastructure provides an opportunity for independent hotels to compete more effectively and to maximise returns.
WHY DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM YOU?
We need personal information from you in order to provide you with the services you require following your arrival at one of our Safari Hotels.
By booking online with us, you agree to provide the personal information we require and, if you order goods or services via our website from third party providers, you also agree to us providing that information to the third party provider of the goods or services.
We will retain information that you provide within the Safari Hotels to ensure you are able to enjoy the benefits when you make return visits to our hotels. This information will not be sold or supplied to a third party, other than when you order goods or services from a third party provider, such as activities through our online booking service. In such cases, we will be required to pass this information onto the third party provider of the goods and services to enable your order to be placed with them.
This information may also be used for marketing by Safari Hotels and its nominated third parties. These third parties may change from time to time and without notice or notification to you. The information we collect is for the sole purposes of conducting the business of Safari Hotels and, where you order other goods or services via our website, assisting you and the provider of those goods and services.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
You will be asked to provide information including, but not limited to, your name, address, email address, and your credit card number. Your credit card number will be transmitted and held within a secure environment (refer to the Payment System section below).
Safari Hotels does not require information on your race, political beliefs, religion or health unless you choose to provide this information. For example, you may request a special diet or accessibility.
If you do not supply Safari Hotels with the basic information we require, then we will be unable to accept your reservation. Further, if you wish to order goods or services from third party providers, then those providers will not accept your order and will not be required to provide the goods or services.
Safari Hotels complies fully with the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007. We will not share, sell, rent, swap or authorise any third party to use your e-mail address without your permission.
If you have “opted-in” to receiving promotional information from Safari Hotels, from time to time, we may e-mail you information about products and services which may be of interest to you. If you no longer wish to receive a specific newsletter, follow the “unsubscribe” instructions located near the bottom of each newsletter.
This website uses Facebook Tools, Google AdWords and the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google and Facebook) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the booking engine to search for room availability and packages. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, a site in the Google Display Network or on Facebook.
WHAT INFORMATION ARE WE RESPONSIBLE FOR?
Safari Hotels is required by the New Zealand Privacy Act 2020 (with a few exceptions) to provide you with access to information held about you.

In the interests of protecting the privacy of our guests we will be required to verify your identity when a request for information is made and you may be requested to supply further information such as a current drivers licence, birth certificate or current passport details.
Once you have received this information we hold about you, you then have the right to change any details of the personal information held within our records.
