Renewed mine last August just prior to our September trip to Kruger :roll:
Received the new card yesterday - new look , new number --- expiring in September 2011 :whistle:
Our next trip will probably only be sometime in 2012 , therefore I will have to renew it again before I can use it :huh:

My card arrived today by registered post, also with a different # to the one I was given when I renewed in Feb this year, but otherwise all looks in order. :dance:

I also received mine today in the USA, International card, sent Registered Mail. :clap:

Unfortunately it has my incorrect initial on it, but I'm hoping that will not be an issue, as the passport number and all other information is correct. There's no time to correct it as we leave in two days for SA! Perfect timing...

BB we also received our card 2 days before we left for South Africa in June :D

They previously informed us we could collect from head office in Pretoria. :hmz:

Wires crossed somewhere, but we have our card now even though it expires in August :thumbs_up:

On July 14th I renewed online my International Wild card …received it yesterday! But now I think that it was stupid renewing online, as I am only going in SA end of October and I‘ll miss 4 month of validity!
The best is to renew just before leaving as the confirmation letter is enough for entering in the parks, or when you are there. But I did not know that before... :hmz:
The great feeling to come back home every time I am in South Africa

South Africa again in November 2012. A week in the Kruger and more...

I just got mine this week fractionally over one month before it was due to "expire". This only after many e mails backwards and forwards - what a frustrating exercise it has been. Better late (11 months late) than never I suppose.
