New online discount ?

Unread postby sarafl » Tue Oct 29, 2013 5:10 pm

Hello. I was wondering if anyone had success booking the 20% and 40% summer special discounts online (for Kruger). I was having problems with booking and called reservations several times. The representative said the promo is in error and is only for south african pensioners. Is this true (the promos have not been fixed to show it) or can anyone book it like the promo indicates? Does anyone know who I can contact about this?

As far as I know Sarah, there are two types of discounts available at certain times (not weekend, holiday or high season.)
One is only for South African Pensioners, but the other one is for anyone - young, old, South African or overseas.
You just need to find out which is which...............maybe send reservations an email, to ask when discounts are available for overseas visitors.

I have definitely had discounts out of season, for up to 40%, and I am from UK. :dance:

Hope you get sorted. :thumbs_up:

Clicking on the Kudu horn for main Sanparks page, it offers 20% discount for northern camps accommodation and 40% discount for northern camping for anyone, not just pensioners.
This is only for booking online so I guess not all staff are fully aware of it.

Hi Val and Kite. Thanks for your advice. I guess I will be calling reservations again tomorrow and hopefully someone I talk to can help me.

If you have tried the main booking office , I suggest you phone a satellite office: 011 678 8870
But best of all try again to just book online as the offers are only for online booking and the agents may not be keen to help unless you are booking through them. In this case, you won't get discount.

When you say you were having problems online, did you get any error message? What happened?
