Archived News

Welcome to our new website!

23 November 2010

Recently, SANParks entered the realm of the mobile world with the launch of SANParks.Mobi. It offers users a variety of information at the tips of their fingers:

  • Display basic tourism info on all parks and camps,

  • Newsfeed (facilitates information dissemination),

  • Weather in real-time,

  • Online bookings (Just book and pay. No amendments or cancellations here. NB: This facility is available only to clients who have “web-enabled”, i.e. registered themselves on our website booking system.)

We have also been hard at work in enhancing the Online Booking system where developments have been made to improve our online sales methodologies.

As a one-stop-shop, users have been able to secure a booking and pay directly online, the following enhancements have been added:

  • The availability browsing from within the online reservations module has been turned into an availability matrix. This enables the web user to see at a glance what is available in any particular camp over a specified date range, instead of having to search one accommodation type at a time.

  • Users can now amend their reservations real-time online – add and remove nights, number of people, etc. (This excludes bookings done by senior citizens.)

And that’s not all – coming up is an informative foreign language initiative. Users will be able to access vital travel information in five foreign languages - Italian, German, Portuguese, Spanish and French.

We welcome and encourage your feedback on the newly redesigned website – let us hear your thoughts by participating in our poll.
