In an attempt to assist needy members who have booked accommodation, but due to circumstances cannot make use of the booking, we decided to start this thread where you can give details of the booking available.

Please note:

- The accommodation is to be sold for the price it was booked - no money should be generated from the exchange.
- The details are posted here, but the correspondence should happen via PM. As soon as the subject is closed (accommodation sold, or date expired), the poster needs to notify a Moderator, who will then remove the post.
- Please do not abuse this system. If you resort to it often, your posts will be removed, and in severe cases, your account may be banned.

Hope you find this facility helpful.

Thank you, Sanparks.

I hope people will make use of it, and give someone else a change to sleep some nights in other camps if there was no more space available.
Good interaction will be neccesary though.

Great news! I recently sold my Father's accommodation at Pretoriuskop to a forum member and it went very smoothly. My dad would have lost his entire amount paid if he had cancelled the booking. It was as simple as arranging the payment and then contacting reservations to alter the name the booking is made in.

Thank you SANParks for posting this here. I think its a great idea, and I am sure the members will stick to your rules.

I will be keeping an eye out here, (just to let you all know :wink: )

I really do think this can work. :clap:

Location: Pretoria but on my way to KTP
I can not believe my bad luck!! For the second year in a row I have to attend an International meeting which clashes with my Urikaruus booking in KTP. I am booked from 16 to 19 March 2014 but can only go from 19 March thus missing 3 nights. Is there anybody that might be booked for 20 March that would be prepared to swop some nights so that I can at least stay longer at one of my favorite camps? PLEASE :redface:

Note to Mods: I forgot/ could not find where to post this thread, so Please move it or direct me to the correct one.

I was supposed to do 5 Nights with some Friends to Satara and I have a paid for booking for 2 X BD2V at Satara. Unfortunately due to an accident in my family and other issues with the other people, we are unable to do the trip. The dates are 10/04/2014 to 15/04/2014 , I have paid the online bookings fees and community levy and hence we are a bit stuck. :wall:

I am willing to hand over the booking to the first person who can confirm and pay for the bookings. As this is a bit short notice, I am willing to let the booking go for 3/4 of the original amount. So if you are interested please contact me here or by email: nbvenkatesh@webmail.co.za.

I will also be posting the SANAPRKS- Kruger FaceBook Page as well.

Hi clicked-on-safari

Why don't you contact one of the reservation offices and see if you can postpone this trip to a later date.

You can book dates in the future, or perhaps they will put the money in credit under your client number.

We have postponed trips before without a problem.

Just a suggestion in case you have no takers on your offer.


Linda

Hi Linda,

I believe that the amount is held for a year, and currently I and the other who were supposed to go, are not sure we can make it in that time frame, hence I would rather pass on the booking. the cost of the booking would be R7800.00 even. I paid R10506.53 and the booking is for 4 adults currently.
Regards,

Hi there. I've got a 3 bed hut in Lower Sabie for 6-9 July 2014. I would like to have a campsite if there's someone willing to swop.
Thank you
Hansie

clicked-on-safari,

I hope you will find some-one who can take over your accommodation. This year we off to Botswana for our holiday in June / July and found your signature link very interesting. I did not know about lions at Nxai Pan and very excited to visit the area.

Hi there :)

I would love to secure Sable hide or Shipandane hide for the night of 8 July 2014! Maybe someone has already booked it and is willing to swop it or change it. I want to take my parent there for the first time, so would really appreciate if I could secure one of the hide for one night :whistle:

It's worth the try atleast :thumbs_up:
