The staff are always friendly too.

Hey Rosie,

Enter the gate at 2R. Drive up the 'main' road and turn left just after the shop. The restaurant is about 70 metres directly in front of you.

Orpen Service excellence helps to ease the pain

Unread post by Dupacc » Wed May 08, 2013 9:37 am

During August 2012 we started planning and made reservations for our dream holiday in KNP: a LST3 in Tamboti, a BD2V in Olifants, and a LST2U in Lower Sabie during May 2013. And when our final payment was made in February, we started our countdown.

However

On Saturday, 4 May, the day before we were to depart for KNP, our eldest son became very ill. The following day I called Orpen gate to inform them we will not be coming. Since it was a Sunday, I could not call Central Reservations. On Monday, 6 May I called again and to make a long story short, Mrs Rose Maluleke and Mrs Serakane Keetse from Orpen assisted me in changing our reservation to March next year. :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: Thank you!

I am also glad to report that my son was discharged from hospital yesterday and he is looking much better today.

We trust God and pray for a complete healing.

My wife Kathy, recently fell on a gravel road and cut her knee badly, the staff at Mopani camp were quick to react and Camp Manager, Garth and wife Christa drove us to the Phalaborwa Hospital as it was after hours, Kathy got cleaned and stitched up and we arrived back at camp late that evening. Next morning we left for Letaba not before Manager Garth came to see how we were doing. Two days later we had to travel to Skukuza for a anti-tetanus injection (none available in the whole of Phalaborwa), the doctor there saw the wound and immediately sent us to Nelspruit for medical treatment. To cut a long story short, 3 nights in Nelspruit hospital and then home, another 4 nights in hospital in Richards Bay now Kathy is reccvering at home and I am planning our next trip to Kruger.

Thanks you to Kysna section and Storms river section GRNP

Unread post by Hugh » Tue May 21, 2013 1:46 pm

Thanks to the people of these two parks for going out of their way to help me.
I left my purse in the Chalet at Knysna ( senior Moment ) and Didn't even miss it It contained CC, ID, keys,Drivers Etc.
We had just settled comfortably into our Log cabin when I received a call. It was Cathy from the Storms river reception. The cleaners of the chalet in Knysna had found my purse and had handed it in. The staff at the Garden oF Eden Knew I was moving on to Storms river So contacted the reception and they phoned me . . What would i like to do ??? then Cathy said dont worry she willl speak to someone in Knysna and see if anyone was coming across sometime. 5 Minutes later she said yes they had arranged it to come over and would I collect it at 5. Well this i did and just missed the ranger bringing it .. thank you to the man in the bakkie with the labbie woefie in the back . Cathy had by this time gone off duty But Werner gave it to me ..... now that is what I call service .
So thanks to all those involved :k
