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:

Hello Everyone,

We have currently booked a GD4 cottage at Shimuwini for 20 - 25 December 2014 (departing 26) (Lucky us!! :dance: )

However, we are actually looking for a GC5...anyone interested to swop if they have a GC5? I see the GD4's are not available so maybe someone would have been keen to have a smaller unit and had to take the bigger one..

Just trying my luck!

Christmas in the Kruger...great stuff!!! :pray:

Hi all!

I have a reservation for Urikaruus on Nov 1st for 1 night, however it seems we are not going to be able to get to the park in time. We will now be arriving the next day. I don't suppose anyone wants to do a swap for a later date? We will be in the park from 2-12 Nov, so could potentially swap it for Urikanuus, or another wilderness camp during that time. If not, i'll just cancel the booking.

Thanks! 8)

Hi, Ceejay. I just picked up a cancellation @ Uri for the nights of Oct 30 and Oct 31--was that you who canceled? If so, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Hello

We would like to stay another night in Nossob on the 27th before returning to Twee Rivieren.
Does anyone have a 3 Bed Chalet they may be interested in swapping on the 27th?

Currently have FA3 in Twee Rivieren.
and staying in a CH4 in Nossob.

PM me if you do.
