Althought you can it is only a confirmation letter,the card will be sent to you by post,this letter can be used at the different Parks untill you get your card.

It does not matter where you buy the card - you first get the confirmation letter, then wait to receive the plastic card in the mail. I bought mine in Langebaan (West Coast NP). After a month phoned the Wild Card offices - asking when I will receive my card. They claimed that West Coast NP never faxed them all my details, that they can't issue the card without it (however I started receiving promotional e-mails soon after purchase). What made me :evil: is the fact that they just left it there and did not bother to contact me to get the information they needed. After that call it took another 2 months for the card to arrive. In any way I went to KTP with only the letter and had no problem - they only need your membership number.

The easiest way to purchase a Wild Card is online.

If you purchase a Wild Card at a park you have to go online within 30 days and enter your details for your Wild Card to be sent to you.

With both methods your personalised Wild Card will be sent to you later. Until that time, to gain entry to parks you have to produce you Confirmation Letter.

So what is the purpose of the form I filled in at the Park - requesting all the details they wanted?

I think its to verify there and then that you are entitled to the card you are buying, remember there is a difference in pricing between SADC citizens and other internationals. I remember buying mine at Skukuza and all they wanted was my passport and credit card!
