Nigerian online hotel reservation service Hotels.ng has announced it has hit 6,000 listings on its service, and aims to hit 10,000 before the end of next year.
Founder Mark Essien tweeted news of the milestone yesterday, and told Disrupt Africa the startup was still aggressively pursuing more listings in Nigeria and across the rest of Africa.
“I am very proud of the Hotels.ng team and the work they have put in to get us to this important milestone of 6,000 hotels,” he said.
“We estimate that there may be 10,000 hotels across Nigeria, and we would like to reach that milestone before the end of 2015. Additionally, in 2015, we plan to also start adding hotels across other countries in Africa.”
Founded in 2012 with US$75,000 in funding, Hotels.ng raised a further US$250 000 in January this year, mainly from Jason Njoku’s Spark fund.
