Hi guys,

Wonder if anyone can help here. In a recent magazine article in a SA travel magazine it mentioned that when one books accomodation in SANPARKS (including the Kruger) that one must ask about the off-peak periods and about the discounts available during these periods.

Apologies to the moderators but I didn't find this in any other forum, but if it is then please direct me to the correct one.

My question is this, when is the off-peak period in the Kruger?

Hi Schooms

As far as I know off-peak time is out of school holidays.
We were in KNP for mid Sept and paid pensioners rates excluding week-ends / long week-ends. Just returned from KNP and this time had to pay full accommodation rates as it was during school holidays.

Enjoy planning your trip :mrgreen:

I've found a link that may help.

http://www.sanparks.org/tourism/tariffs/default.php

Have a look under the Seasonal Discounts section.

Would be helpful to rally know those Low Season dates.

HI

If you look under Tariffs on the SANP web site and open the 2013 -2014 Tariffs you will see that from Nov 2013 there are 3 Tariffs. A Low Season rate, a shoulder season rate and a high season rate. They differentiate between "HOT" times (low season )and "COOLER " times in the parks (high season) as well as school holiday periods . You will see the 3 columns with the respective applicable dates . Hope this helps ?

Hi Schooms

Dont forget there are also Pensioners discounts (there are some benefits to getting old !!! :o ) Go to http://www.sanparks.org/tourism/tariffs ... scount.php for the files

Then there are the special deals and you can get these at http://www.sanparks.org/tourism/reserva ... scount.php

Then there are the weekly specials on the main page of the SANP website It says " Quick availability check - Still available this weekend "

Also read about tariffs etc on http://www.sanparks.org/tourism/tariffs/

Hope this helps !! Enjoy your trips --- it is much better when you only have only paid 60% of the normal tariff !!! :)
