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:

Hello,

I just booked 6 nights in KNP for March 2016.
It is in 6 month....Do you think I have to send my special requests to the camps now?
Or should I wait?
If sending now, I'm afraid they forget them!
Thanks for your advices.

Hi papop,

I have asked for a specific bungalow 9 months in advance. Received a reply to say it's done. When we arrived i was shown that it was put on the system the day i got the reply. Needless to say i was very happy.
Was i lucky?

Many thanks Dikkes, I have sent the requests!

Unfortunately the one sent to Punda Maria felt. I used this address: garth.holt@sanparks.org.
Does anybody knows if it is the good address?

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.

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:
