I've recently come back from a 14-day stay in KNP with my wife and youngest son, and we had a fantastic time.
Special thanks go out to SANParks reservations (the # I dialed was on my confirmation page), Biyamiti, and Berg en Dal reception. We lost our notebook with specific names, so this has to just be a general thanks.
We missed our connecting flight to Nelspruit and there was no way we were going to make the gate, let alone our first camp (Biyamiti) before closing time. I called reservations and explained my situation, and they suggested I call Biyamiti directly for advice. I then called Biyamiti and explained my situation. The man I spoke to checked availability and Berg en Dal and suggested I switch my first night to there, and to call Berg en Dal directly to see about a late gate entry. I then called Berg en Dal and arraigned to be met at the gate. We were escorted directly to our bungalow, and were able to fall asleep to the sounds of lions and hyenas afterall.
I can't underestimate how helpful SANParks was in guiding us. We were looking to find a place to sleep outside of the park and just make due. Instead, our vacation start went from stressful to stress-free. As an international visitor, I appreciate what was done for us. Thank you.
