Yes, my Wild Card arrived today, 9 months after updating, and 5 weeks after it expired, and with a different number!! And just last week I finally gave in and applied for a NEW card. So, a third number I guess...? :clap:

My Wild Card arrived in the post last week.

At least it got delivered before expiry in January 2012, but my Kruger trip for which I purchased it was 5 months ago! :hmz:

Those mites who have been so luckily to have received their new WildCards, (with or without new numbers), Well done!!

To those that are still waiting (like me), well lets be patient - :whistle: :whistle: :wall: :wall:

This weekend I'm going to Kruger and again I don't have a wildcard :wall:
This is my second Kruger trip that I don't have a widcard :roll:
They have had since March ...

of coarse you just need to give your number and they find you on the system, but I wish I could just have a card in my wallet to pull out at reception.

After sending another email to Joep, he kindly confirmed with Wild Card admin that my details were correct (they said they were not)?

So I have received my wild card - Yippee Yippee!

Thanks Joep for your trouble

Had renewed in January 2011, updated details (once electronically and once telephonically) and received Wild Card Confirmation letter thanking me for updating my details but had not received my wild card yet. Called them this morning and was told that my details must be updated .... again :wall: Done it once again and was told that I would be receiving my wild card within the next 2-3 weeks :whistle:

Just collected ours from the post box...........in time for our 10 weeks of day visits through Phala Gate.

Although an international card is expensive we will certainly get our money's worth!!
Already visited KNP twice, WCNP and KTP!!! :dance:

I got mine today... Paid for it in March. So, renewal is due in 15 weeks' time! I just hope the card doesn't require replacement.
