Definitely no need for printout.

Just your reservation number and client code. I've entered with the only "proof", the sms they send to my phone to confirm the reservation.

Enjoy your stay........... :thumbs_up:

There will be three or four sets of people traveling together but in separate cars and want separate huts/tents in several camps in Kruger. Can 1 person make res for 3 spots at each camp or does each party need to make their own? Thanks in advance.

Hi Matnikstym,

I've booked more than one accommodation on one reservation number in the same camp in the past.

Enjoy your trip.......... :thumbs_up:

Deffinitely possible Just make copies of the booking form and each group has one in case you dont arrive at the same time at an entrance gate or camp .. not fun having to wait about for your friends to arrive

Matnikstym, we usually book under one reservation number for our group.

Some lessons I have learnt....

1. Specify type of accommodation you want and number of people per hut - look online for the codes and equipment provided in the various accom types.
2. If you are paying separately, you can do this but make sure that the other guests quote the reservation number and note on the form that the credit card name is different from the booking info. Also pay at least 10 days before due date as we have had issues relating to this before. If your booking is not paid on time it is automatically cancelled. We usually pay the deposit in full ourselves and then have a smaller balance to pay than our friends. I always call reservations two days before due date to make sure that the payments have been processed properly.
3. The camps usually try to keep a group together. At most, we have been one or two huts in between. You can request specific huts from the camps by emailing the camps. We do this about 8 weeks out.

Enjoy.

Hello all

I have just registered to do online bookings and I have some rather dim-witted questions to ask. I seen to remember long time ago there was thread on this. Can someone point me to it? If not where on theses forums should I post my questions? There are of a bery general mnature and may interest other people who like me are near retirement and will be doing many more bookings at all parks in South Africa.

I have put this query on the KNP forum as people here seem to be really patient with us dof ous (translation for overseas tourist: we thickheads).

Pete

Hi Pete

Just keep in mind, to make use of the pensioners discount, you have to phone book, or book via email, online booking does not give pensioner discounts, but a 5% discount on some (if not all?) bookings. (For future when you are booking all those many lovely trips :D )

The Chill Room is the forum to browse through for Online Booking type of topics - see here. Near the top is a link to a tut. And a little further down is a topic Online Questions, Advice, Problems. Please ask any questions you have, we will try assist or ask the tech guys to help where we cannot.

We (one couple) have got one of those 2-bedroom units booked @ Biyamiti Bush Camp, because the single bedroom units were not available. So we paid the "base rate" which according to this page...

http://www.sanparks.org/parks/kruger/ca ... hp?id=1231

...sleeps four.

Some friends from Nelspruit would like to join us on that day.
We would go & get them at Malelane gate (so we'd still be in one car).

Can we simply do this, or do we need to warn the bush camp about bringing in more people?
Our booking confirmation letter states "2 people"...

Thx,

J.

Yes, I think you would need to inform them, even if there is no further charge that there will now be 2 extra people entering the park.
but remember if they don't have a valid wild card they will need to pay the daily conservation fees.

Hello

Does one pay the conservation fee per day or per 24 hours?
If we get in the park at 10.00 am on day 1, at what time do we have to leave the park on day 3?
Many thanks

Danielle

As far as I know, the conservation fee is calculated per calendar day; hence, irrespective of the time you arrive on day 1, you will pay the full fee for that day, followed by the same daily fee for subsequent days in the Park. You may leave the Park at any legal time (between gate open and gate close) on day 3 (or any other day).

Depends on whether you are a day visitor or overnight visitor. If a day visitor it is per day, if staying overnight the fee applies for each night you stay. This is one reason you pay the fee at the camp rather than the gate when staying overnight.

Hi Dani L

It is my understanding that if you are staying in the park, the fee is per night. So, you may arrive at gate opening time in the morning, stay and pay for the night, then leave just before gate closing time the next day.

To maximised time in the park, we normally arrive very early and drive around quite a bit before checking in. (Check in time at camps from 2pm)

Enjoy
