HI Bush Hugger

3D has given you great help :clap:

Here is the link to the online bookings she mentions - it is a good idea to register there as you can then always view, adjust your bookings in the future too; just ensure you use your Client no. link

BH - I see you posted while I was typing.

You will either need to wait for tomorrow when you can call Reservations, between 7.30 and 10am.

Or try and amend your information in 'Update your Profile' on the Online Bookings to make it that you are a SA citizen. Try that first.

Hi Bunny Hugger, from my past experience you need to make your booking first thing tomorrow morning. The Joburg Heathway office (011 678 8870) opens at 7.30am. They will then give you a phone number in Pretoria, which you contact, and your funds are paid into your booking immediately. You just need your booking number. I looked for the number for you, but must have it written down at work. Hope you get sorted out.

Bunny Hugger - I agree - Reservation House at Heathway Centre is the best for reservations. I think the Pretoria number Wild Thing referred to is 012 426 5102 - the sorted out my credit and allocated to another booking in no time at all.

Hi All,

Thanks sooo much for your help.

I am going to contact the pretoria and JHB offices tomorrow.

I figured out after so long like a fool that i had alreday selected for a option to credit my amount to my card
rather than asking to credit my Client account.

Thanks a lot threedogs,DinkyBird Hippotragus, WildThing for all your asistsance .... I will keep all posted

Wildthing : I will be calling on the no provided by you.

Regards

Hi All,

I did get a email from the SANPARKS finance department that the money will be credited back to my
account BUT only on 17th January. How Sad :evil: . They also mentioned that the amount cant be reused
for bookigs as they have already commenced the process of recrediting back.

Regards,

threedogs

That is really disappointing :( I don't think January 17th is an acceptable time frame to credit an account even if it is Christmas.

Yes Threedogs it's really disappointing. They said the finance department is going to open after 7th Jan and the process will take some time.
Still 17th Jan is too long :hmz: :hmz:
Does it really take so long?

Bookings for Dec. 2013

Unread postby ice » Tue Jan 01, 2013 8:33 am

am I correct in assuming that AVAILABILTY for Dec. 2013 might be checked but that RESERVATIONS can at this time only be made by contacting the respective offices rather than by online booking, that online booking for Dec 2013 will not be possible until Feb 01? or is the online booking system just "lagging" behind because of the holiday?

thanks

Hi ice

Happy New Year to you :D

Online bookings can only be made 10 months in advance. So if you wish to book for Dec 2013 before Feb 2013, you will need to do it via email, or telephone, or fax to these contacts here.
