Wild Magazine

Unread postby saraf » Thu Mar 08, 2012 11:52 am

The Autumn edition of the Wild Magazine should be arriving soon.

WildCard wrote:If you haven't received your copies of Wild magazine, please get in touch with us. We don't want you to miss out on this feast of nature and travel.

The easiest thing to do would be to email your confirmation letter and postal address to subs@tipafrica.co.za.

We require your postal address in the following format:

Title Inital Surname & card number
Address line 1
Address line 2
Address line 3
Suburb
Town / City
Province
Country
Postal code

You may not be able to access your confirmation letter online with your new Wild Card number. This is because the letter is linked to your temporary number and not the number printed on the new card.

If this is the case, please email your name, Wild Card number AND ID number or passport number to subs@tipafrica.co.za.

Please remember that Wild Magazine is a quarterly publication and not a monthly one but if you think you are missing editions please follow the steps above.

Re: Wild Magazine (renewal of WildCard)

Unread postby Jose » Wed May 02, 2012 12:01 pm

Thought I'd throw in my experiences, for what they're worth...

I've had a WildCard (old and new system) for years. After the, rather abrupt, change of 'rules and regulations' I updated my details online in Oct 2010 (??). Got my confirmation letter which got me into the KNP just fine in Nov 2010 and Mar 2011.
Renewed (online) in Oct 2011. Another confirmation email. Good enough for gate/camp admission in Nov 2011 .
In Feb 2012 I received my "real" plastic card. And ja, it worked for my KNP entry in Mar 2012. (I still had my - still valid - confirmation letter with me, just in case).
In Apr 2012 I received my first (printed) copy of "members only Wild card magazine" (edition "Autumn 2012").

So - in my case - all is fine, at last. Don't worry, you'll all get your card. Sooner or later. I hope.

I can't help but dread the renewal coming up in Oct this year. :|

Go well, friends. Stay wild! :D

Have received the magazine only once in all the time that I have been a Wild Card holder. I now have a "life" Wild Card and wander if I am entitled to the magazine. However, will follow the thread mentioned above.

Looking forward to the magazine. 8) I always enjoyed it.

I received a long letter of apology from the service providers for the mess and the damage done to Sanpark's reputation. Pretty decent, I thought.

Oh yes. MM thanks for the reminder, I meant to put the text on here for those who didn't receive it.

Zypresse, so glad you got the magazine

Right from the time we got our new Sanparks Wildcard (well confirmation letter at that point) in Dec 2010, we have been receiving our magazines.......which are well worth reading!! :clap:

It is only since our card expired, and I have not yet renewed it (because we are overseas as the moment) that we have not had one for a while (as per the rules)

We will renew it in November, when we return to South Africa, so looking forward to another year of magazines.

I've received my Autumn magazine in March, but wonder if the winter issue was already posted. Those that did received magazines this month can you please confirm if its an Autumn or Winter addition.


I am not sure if I need to update again, because I did receive a mag a few months. :?

I received my first ever copy of Wild Magazine today...the Winter 2012 edition. Seems strange to get one called winter just as summer is starting here in the UK!!!

Yay!! Happy me :dance:
