I first visited Tshokwane because their Kudu Boerie Rolls had been recommended by a friend. :dance:

Despite still suffering a heck of a lot of pain, Andrew, forever humble, posed for a photo last night especially for us here on the forums. I will post it tomorrow.

Dr Mabunda invited him to say a few words last night, again Andrew showed the true hero he is.

I think he still has a long road ahead to full recovery and to be pain free. Let us all continue to support him, and his fellow rangers.

Mountain Zebra NP's staff love their Park and working there

Unread post by MATTHYS » Sun Nov 10, 2013 4:07 pm

That is the impression that we got after spending 3 nights there recently and I thank them for that :gflower:

Every staff member (rangers, receptionists, people servicing accommodation, shop and restaurant attendants) that we encountered seemed to be so enthusiastic about the Park and the work that they do there and our accommodation was in superb condition :clap:

A great Park to visit ! :D

Agree with you totally! :thumbs_up: MZNP staffers are exceptional and it's a gem of a park (please don't tell :wink: ). My first (and only, so far) visit was for 4 nights and it wasn't nearly enough. Hope to get there again soon.

I won't tell :wink: but I think the word is out already :D We had to change our itinerary (well worth it) to get accommodation there. Our first visit too and we will also be back :thumbs_up:

I have to add that we saw no speeding or road kills in the Park :clap:

Thanks Mata Mata staff

Unread post by Katja » Thu Nov 14, 2013 4:23 pm

I would like to thank the friendly staff members at Mata Mata who removed the mole snake that had 'taken up residence' in the undercarriage of my vehicle and released it back into the bush.
In the excitement I forgot to ask their names.

Well done! Thank you very much! :clap:

What lovely staff at Berg en Dal

Unread post by Safari Gal » Thu Nov 14, 2013 5:30 pm

Have just returned from 2 nights at Berg en Dal and I just want to say thank you to all the staff at reception who were all so friendly, helpful and welcoming. Only got the names of 2 of them i.e. Mpumelo and Musa, but the other lady and gentlemen who were on duty this morning, were also a pleasure to deal with.
Thanks again

Safari Gal, I also had very good service from the ladies at Berg en Dal reception regarding making changes to our booking, I was not getting ANY joy/satisfaction from Lower Sabie regarding requesting a specific unit, so I took a chance by phoning Berg en Dal on Sunday afternoon, the telephone was answered after 2 rings, they gave me the correct info, changed the booking, processed the payment, e mailed the confirmation within a few minutes :shock: :shock: where bad service is the order of the day it is such a pleasure to get good service :D :D

Totally agree. We were at Lower Sabie last month and I had emailed a request for a specific unit (they would not do it over the phone like BnD do happily), when I phoned a week or so later to find out if our request had been successful I was told they would not "divulge" the number we were given but that we were no where near the contruction. On arrival, we were actually directly opposite chain saws, angle grinders etc.!
What a difference staff make.
Good on you guys and girls at Berg n Dal!
Have a wonderful time when you go tent dweller
