Bushtops Safari Camps built at Wallop

  • JavaScript
  • Google Maps API
  • CSS animations

Bushtops Camps is a luxury safari brand based in Kenya and Tanzania. We developed their new website on Wordpress, aligning it with their updated branding. As a unique feature, the client wanted to highlight the Wildebeest migration's timing at each Bushtops camp, so we built a custom Migration Map using the Google Maps API and Wildebeest migration data to achieve this goal. The new website also streamlined information about the Bushtops experience for guests, increasing overall engagement and direct bookings.

This approach ensures that the site can evolve alongside the company, providing a solid foundation for their future growth.

Graduate Hotels built at Wallop

  • Accessibility
  • Wordpress Multisite

Graduate Hotels is a collection of hotels located in college towns across the USA and UK celebrating the college aesthetic. We built them a custom Wordpress multisite using a parent/child theme setup for brand and location sites. This scalable solution ensures a consistent user experience as their hotel collection expands. To comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the site was meticulously crafted to adhere to WCAG 2.0 + 2.1 accessibility guidelines. Through extensive automated and manual testing, we identified and resolved any issues, guaranteeing an inclusive experience for guests of all abilities to book at any Graduate Hotel location.
