SANParks day visitor pre-booking available online.

Unread post by Lesego » Tue Mar 01, 2016 10:12 am

South African National Parks (SANParks) has included a new feature in its online bookings portal - pre-booking for day visitors. Previously, advanced day visitor bookings could only be done for the Kruger National Park, by contacting the Reservations office.
According to Acting Head of Communications Reynold Thakhuli, “SANParks is continually developing ways to make our guests’ booking experience easier and this is the latest addition to our ever-evolving world of online bookings”.

This new function will enable online users to pre-book their day visitor park permits in a variety of time slots and for several days at a time. “This will alleviate waiting in the queue at park gates and ensure that guests will not be impacted or inconvenienced by the gate permit quotas,” concluded Thakhuli.

This new online feature will aid in securing your spot in the Park during the busy periods such as Easter, school holidays and the Festive Season, offering peace-of-mind that your entry as a day visitor to the Park is guaranteed.

Guests are able to book a permit/permits online for a specific timeslots such as
• Entry from gate opening time (depending on the season) to two hours after the gate has opened.
• Two to four hours from the gate opening time.
• Four plus hours from the gate opening time.

We visited the Park yesterday and luckily Numbi Gate was quite at 8.00am and we encountered no problems at all.
