Re: Buying a Wildcard at the KNP gate.

Thanks for the quick reply, colbol. Glad to know I've got that straight. Looking forward to being in Kruger again. Each time we go, we extend our stay by a day or so and we finally are staying long enough to make the Wild Card worth the cost. :D

Re: Buying a Wildcard at the KNP gate.

Hi All. We are booking 8 nights in Kruger and plan to buy a Wild Card. Am I correct in thinking that since it's valid for a year from the date of purchase, it would be best for us to buy it upon arrival in the park? Also, even though we don't yet have the card, I assume I should choose the accommoda...

Re: Why is Booking Period Only Showing 7 Months?

Thank you MATTHYS. :)

Next question that may not have an answer at this point in time…

Does anyone know the dates for SANParks week 2024? It may be the week in September we are looking at and anticipating the crowds doesn’t excite me.

Re: Why is Booking Period Only Showing 7 Months?

Well, that doesn’t bode well! We’ll just have to try and get it right the first time. It’s not easy doing this from the other side of the world. We’ve got to book flights too and right now I’m waiting for a better price than what I’m seeing. In the mean time Kruger bookings are filling up. Such a ba...

Re: Why is Booking Period Only Showing 7 Months?

From my end it looks great and hasn’t seemed slow. I just needed a bit of help finding our dates. But, we only get to Kruger every few years so I’m not a regular online user. We’ll see how the online booking goes once we settle on something. If we need to make changes after booking online is that pr...

Re: Why is Booking Period Only Showing 7 Months?

Ok, glad it wasn’t just me but I see how to get there now. Thank you to both of you! Still in the planning session but hoping to get back to our “happy place” once again.

Why is Booking Period Only Showing 7 Months?

I'm trying to see accommodation in Kruger for Sept. 2024 but it is only showing through July 2024. Any idea why? Is this just a glitch? Is there something I need to do differently? Has the open booking period changed recently? We've researched and booked online several times over the years and never...

Re: Talamati Bushveld Camp

Elsa, yes, my stress always melts away while in Kruger, as it does for my husband. That's one of the reasons why we keep returning. I had already decided to change our reservation for the first night to Skukuza. That will solve more than one problem. I hate to miss a night at Talamati but I think it...

Re: Talamati Bushveld Camp

Thank you, Elsa. I'm glad we've got time to consider our options. Having never been there in the rainy season there is more to consider than I realized. I'm already waiting to hear back from the reservations office to change some guided sunset/night drives (in which you advised me on a different for...

Re: Talamati Bushveld Camp

Well, Richard J, your news of closed roads to Talamati this past January is concerning. Does that happen often? How long would it take if we had to use the Orpen gate route? Should we consider one night closer to the Skukuza airport? Or perhaps trying to get an earlier arrival? Thanks.

Re: Talamati Bushveld Camp

Hello All, I'm curious about the current condition of the S36 on the way to Talamati. We won't be there until January and as that is the rainy season I'll need to ask again closer to our visit but I want to get some feedback. We will arrive by plane to Skukuza and pick up a rental vehicle at 14:15. ...

Re: Booking advice for Activities

Hi All, I hope this is the best place for this question. If not, my apologies. My husband and I are returning to KNP for the 4th time in January 2023. This time we'll be staying for 7 nights (our longest visit yet) and will spend 4 nights in Talamati and 3 nights in Lower Sabie. I'm excited to try o...

Re: INDEX to the best unit numbers

Thanks, Elsa. I forgot that there are pictures of all the accommodation options. Can you tell me how far the walk is from the bush view tents (LBVST2) to the river view tent (LRVST2)? We have one of each and I'm just wondering about the walk between the two at night.
