You can send a mail to stephen.nel@sanparks.org.

Also find Camp mail/Tel #'s

I always do mine about 3 weeks prior to my visit but I see others seem to request it as soon as they have done their reservation.

Regarding requesting specific accommodation, I want to give special compliments to DORCUS NXUMALO of Lower Sabie who handled my special requests for the past few years in such a friendly way. She always responds almost immediately and is always doing her utmost best to accommodate our wishes.

Thank you, DORCUS :gflower:

I have spoken to Garth just now, he has assured me that his email is in good order, it could be our server that may have been down, hence some mails were returned. Sydwell's email address has been listed above as an alternative contact person.

Need help again!
I sent a request to letaba 2 weeks ago, and I am still without any answer!
If somebody can tell me if the email address I used is the right one:michelle.nkuna@sanparks.org?

Hello Forumites!

I'm looking for an email address for the hospitality manager at Pretoriuskop. I was able to confirm the desired units at all camps on our itinerary except Pretoriuskop. The email address in the contacts list is coming back undeliverable.

Thanks,

Lynn

In the past, I've found that while some camps acknowledge requests, others don't. :wall: What I've done is, if I've not received a reply after a few weeks, I re-send my email noting that I had not received a reply to it and then I've usually gotten a reply. So don't despair, just be persistent :wink:

Ncamsile Dlamini (ncamsile.dlamini@sanparks.org) sorted out a specific unit for us at Berg en Dal about about 18 months ago.

This is just a shout out to the managers at Biyamiti and Talamati! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
We emailed the camps, requesting specific units for our 3 nts in Biyamiti and 3 nights in Talamati for July, and Ms. Lucy Khaka (Talamati) and Mr Gordon Ramsden (Biyamiti) both responded within an hour! Thanks so much!!

THANK YOU! :gflower: THANK YOU! :gflower: THANK YOU! :gflower:

I too would like to give a shoutout and a huge THANK YOU for the amazing response that I received recently when requesting specific units. About a month ago I emailed my requests to the following:

Faith Mkonyeni, Satara THANK YOU! :gflower:

Mari Morland, Skukuza THANK YOU! :gflower:

Stephen Nel, Crocodile Bridge THANK YOU! :gflower:

Surprise Hlatshwayo, Biyamiti THANK YOU! :gflower:

Patience Mabaso, Lower Sabie THANK YOU! :gflower:

Nomonde Kgabage, Mopani THANK YOU! :gflower:

Michelle Nkuna, Letaba THANK YOU! :gflower:


Within 24 hours I had heard from every single one of them except for Olifants. ( I waited several weeks and emailed Olifants again but I still have not heard from them.)

I am so impressed and so very happy that I got everything that I requested. Big thank you to all staff for their attention to their guests. Well done.

Now, I just have to be patient and wait for October.

Kathleen
