Disabled Accommodation:
Please could someone assist in advising how to ensure that I get a disabled unit. I know they are kept back for a period before release ( how long) I am determined to go in December :D but must book a disabled unit for the friend going with.

You need to phone Reservations directly and ask. They should be able to talk you through the procedure.

When requesting specific accommodation I don't think that there is a set path to follow, last year when I requested specific accommodation I was told to email 3 options and I would be allocated one of my three options, this year I called the same camp and asked if I was able to book a specific safari tent and I was asked which number I would like, I gave the number and it was allocated to me. Different processes on different days I suppose depending on who answers the phone :doh: :hmz: :hmz: :hmz: :hmz:

Hi Bushbuddies,

Christo Knox is the hospitality services manager at Shimuwini now. I have also requested a specific unit and he phoned me within an hour to confirm my request. You can e-mail him at christo.knox@sanparks.org

I emailed a request to Biyamiti,for our July stay,and had a reply within the day.
Does seem all camps are different and there is no uniform policy.

Thanks alf! Unfortunately Christo Knox is one of the persons that I have e-mailed from the outset. No response. It is not the end of the world - I understand most units are good. I did, however, get a fast and friendly response from Tamboti - well done to them! I could not get the unit I requested, but they gave me such a friendly reply, and allocated me to the next best unit. Good service, friendliness and courtesy!

There is no uniform policy as there is no stated "right" to request specific units. The camps will try to accommodate as many people as they can where it is convenient to do so, but it is at the discretion of the camps to do this. They have other considerations to take into account.


I totally understand this saraf. I have no problem with this. I just think it a bit strange if a camp never answers their phone and 2 people responsible for managing the camp are not courteous enough to answer one's e-mails. This is luckily not concerning anything serious, and I'm not angry at all. I just think there is some room for improved service at certain camps. :thumbs_up:

I've just contacted both Lower Sabie and Satara to request specific accommodation.

Lower Sabie

The friendly lady at reception told me to mail my request to rofhiwa.nedididi@sanparks.org.

Satara

Seems Satara will only accept a fax. I asked for an email address and she told me that I must rather fax my request through. :rtm:

In both cases I asked that they confirm when the allocation has been made, so I wait in anticipation.... :pray:

Will let everyone know what the outcome is. :thumbs_up:

Hi All,

I was trying to calling camps to reserve particular room for my reservation but cannot get hold of them. It always goes to answering machine.

Do you guys know how to book a particular room other than phone?

For example,
in skukuza, I would like to book room BE3 #74.

Thanks
Viral
