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:

Hey there forumites. Its been quite a while since I have chatted with you. I come to you all with my hat in my hand today to ask if there is anyone who knows about any accommodation bookings that are not going to be utlilised from about 7 August to 10 August which I could possibly take over. Was going to attend an event which got cancelled, however, my leave is approved so I though I may as well make hay whilst the sunshines and get a quick trip in. I have been through the SANParks accommodation and there seems to be nothing which we can utilise in that period as its fully booked. :pray:

Bushbarmy, did you have a look further north in the park, like Mopani etc.
Often its easier to find something available there.
Otherwise I can move this post over to our Accommodation Exchange Topic

Hi Guys

Due to certain reasons i won't be able to make my trip to Kruger in September. :(

Please let me know if you are interested in taking over my booking before i transfer it to a later date.
(NO it is not for free :twisted: )


19th - 24th September Olifants FQ4U1
5 days
Public holiday on the 24th.


Yes it is one of the better accommodation available.

All the Best
Chas
