I think this is for online bookings
If you call SANPARKS bookings open 12 months ahead of time
But then again I've been known to be wrong :redface: :redface:

Imberbe, usually it is 11 months yes but I have found that it differs in January...2 years ago it only opened on the 17th of Jan.

Good question Magriet. I've not seen any formal communication when the offices will be closed in January and from when bookings will be done.

You might be able to view availability and email your bookings.

Central Reservations for phone and email reservations open 11 months in advance. Online bookings open 10 months in advance.

However as Magriet has said, sometimes during the Christmas and New Year period this opening has been delayed, sometimes it has been delayed to the first Monday in the month, sometimes later, sometimes not delayed at all.

I have asked a question and if I get an answer I will post here.

My agent also told me 16 Jan when I asked her to book for me for Dec 14.
