Requesting of specific units in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

Although this post was a reply to questions raised in another topic, I thought it would be feasible to open a separate topic with information as supplied by Nadia which read as follows:

Barryels

We are travelling in a group of 4 so is it safe to assume that they will put us up in chalets next to each other where we have booked 2 chalets?

thanks

Dear katanga,

Although Duty Managers will under normal circumstances take your booking into account, I would suggest that you make use of the service above to remind the Duty manager that you are a party of 4 and that you would appreciate it if you could have accommodation close to each other. Hope it is the same type of accommodation :hmz: .

Katanga, in all our years, they have always booked adjacent units for us in these circumstances, provided the kind of units you booked, allow for this. To be safe though, try the duty manager (although I was unsuccesful to get any response from Mata Mata's manager, Nossob's one responded on the same day).

Hi Barry/Others,

Do the contact details posted here still hold true if wanting to request for best units?

Secondly,

Which would be the best ones for Urikaruus, KTC & Kieiliekrankie?

Riaanf31,

The contact details is the latest as at 31 August 2016 and did not change since :thumbs_up: .

I suggest you visit the accommodation topic Here to get an idea of the units. Just a reminder that an additional unit was added at Urikaruus & Kieliekrankie and all the units are revamped :thumbs_up: .

there is not really a best or better or wrong unit at KK or Uri
with only 5 units every single one stands out

I would say let it be a surprise as part of the adventure of the Kgalagadi
can't wait for June 2017 to start with Augrabies 24 2R 25+26 Nossob 27+28 MM 29+30 KK

Dear Clarence,

I suggest that you use the following email: kgalagadi@sanparks.org

It might be that Willem is away on his rest days.

Just a reminder that you have to give a choice of two units :thumbs_up: .
