KASANE: Having struggled to generate a profit since 2019, Travelodge Kasane has been among the runt piglets of the Travelodge Group, surviving off the profitability of its sister companies.

However, the company expects this winter to bring in a massive performance boost. Ending the last financial year with only roughly 20% occupancy, the Kasane branch of Travelodge seemed to be in dire straits. Which was an inevitable consequence of both global and domestic travel restrictions isolating the business from its core target market. With the easement of travel restrictions and suddenly increased activity in the Chobe region with businesses being packed to capacity, some for the first time in multiple years, Travelodge expects to end this winter season with no less than an average 70% capacity.

This business change would transform one of the runt piglets of the Travelodge Group into one of its roaring lions charging along with Travelodge Gaborone and Room50two. Travelodge Kasane General Manager Todd Chivese expressed that this winter season will likely be one of the biggest revenue generation periods for this financial year along with the festive season.
