In an attempt to assist needy members who have booked accommodation, but due to circumstances cannot make use of the booking, we decided to start this thread where you can give details of the booking available.

Please note:

- The accommodation is to be sold for the price it was booked - no money should be generated from the exchange.
- The details are posted here, but the correspondence should happen via PM. As soon as the subject is closed (accommodation sold, or date expired), the poster needs to notify a Moderator, who will then remove the post.
- Please do not abuse this system. If you resort to it often, your posts will be removed, and in severe cases, your account may be banned.

Hope you find this facility helpful.

Thank you, Sanparks.

I hope people will make use of it, and give someone else a change to sleep some nights in other camps if there was no more space available.
Good interaction will be neccesary though.

Great news! I recently sold my Father's accommodation at Pretoriuskop to a forum member and it went very smoothly. My dad would have lost his entire amount paid if he had cancelled the booking. It was as simple as arranging the payment and then contacting reservations to alter the name the booking is made in.

Thank you SANParks for posting this here. I think its a great idea, and I am sure the members will stick to your rules.

I will be keeping an eye out here, (just to let you all know :wink: )

I really do think this can work. :clap:

Hello Everyone,

We have currently booked a GD4 cottage at Shimuwini for 20 - 25 December 2014 (departing 26) (Lucky us!! :dance: )

However, we are actually looking for a GC5...anyone interested to swop if they have a GC5? I see the GD4's are not available so maybe someone would have been keen to have a smaller unit and had to take the bigger one..

Just trying my luck!

Christmas in the Kruger...great stuff!!! :pray:

Good day,

I know there is another topic on this, but I could not find it, so mods please merge the two topics.

My brother and I decided in the spur of the moment to try and book accomodation first week in Jan. We found place in Berg-en-dal and I am very exited because I have never stayed there before. He is a camper so he is sorted. We had a chat with our folks over the weekend and they decided to join us as well, and they got the last bungalows available on some of the days. The problem is as follows.
Our booking is a BA3U on 1 and 2 Jan and a BA3 on 3 and 4 Jan. We know have to move in the middle of our trip.
My parents got it even worse and I would like it if I can help them first. Their itenary is as follows:
1 Jan BA3
2 Jan BA3U
3 and 4 Jan BA3.

Is their anyone wo wants to exchange a BA3 for a BA3U on 2 Jan?
For our own booking I would like exchange any of the dates either way, I don't mind to much
