Hesther Van Den Berg

My parents and I were highly looking forward to making a Kruger booking for August 2013, in the only week my father could take leave! :D We needed a handicapped friendly unit for my mom, and frustration began to mount as the answer repeatedly came back "all the handicapped units are booked up" :?
The same answer for Berg en Dal, Skukuza, Pretoriuskop, Lower Sabi, Satara, Biyamiti - all who have units for the handicapped :? Could this even be possible ... that all the handicapped units have been legitimately booked up 9 months beforehand :shock:

After being advised by Dinkybird, I sent an email to Tannie Hesther Van Den Berg, but I had very little hope that anything could be done :( To add to this, there was the issue of re-arranging people's bookings due to the floods.

Yesterday I get an email with our client code, of a handicapped friendly guest in cottage in Skukuza for 3 nights, a a handicapped friendly perimeter bungalow at Letaba for 5 nights :dance: :dance: :dance: We are so overjoyed that we can have a family trip to Kruger next year :dance: :dance: :dance: A sincere thanks to Tannie Hesther who took the time to look at my request in this busy time, and secure a booking to our needs where it was previously impossible.

We are so thankful :D
