Hard copy confirmation letter needed?

Unread post by tschaap » Fri May 19, 2017 10:01 am


I just bought a wildcard online and get the confirmation letter attached in the mail.
Now I have 3 questions:
1 Do I need a hard copy of the confirmation letter to show at the entrance of the park, or can I just show them the letter on my phone?
2 I will travel for 2 month in the southern part of Africa. So I will not be home before July to collect my card. I choose the option "post" to send it to my home adress in The Netherlands. Wil it just drop in my letterbox or do I have to sign for deliverance?
3 Can I still use my confirmation letter at the entrance even when the card is allready at my home?

Thank you for you reply.
Kind regards,
We are traveling Overland with our car from Cape Town to The Netherlands to meet different people and cultures. But most of all, enjoy its landscapes and visit NP's to see wildlife in there natural habitat.

1. No - you can just give them the reservation number.

2 and 3 I'm not sure about... Hopefully someone else can answer!

Warm welcome to the forum tschaap! :clap:

Bring your wild card payment confirmation letter with you just in case but use your phone as a backup.
that will be enough for now.

You can also do the same for your accommodation reservations.

You will need to sign for the wild card when it is delivered, as its sent via registered mail.

Sure Crested Val will confirm all this when she comes on line.

Yes Elsa is quite right. :thumbs_up:

I would definitely bring a hard copy of your letter, in case you have a problem with your phone...better safe than sorry. :thumbs_up:

Having said that, they should just be able to look you up on the computer, but if the system is down, then again you would have a problem, so the hard copy is the way to go :thumbs_up:

Yes when your card eventually arrives, you will have to sign for it. :thumbs_up:

Just for your information that card will be yours for life. When it expires, if you are visiting again you just need to renew not buy a new card. It will have yur name on it. If you lose it you can then ask for a replacement, and it will cost you R100 to replace.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday!! :thumbs_up:
