Accommodation Exchange

Unread post by SANParks » Tue May 13, 2008 8:41 am

In an attempt to assist needy members who have booked accommodation, but due to circumstances cannot make use of the booking, we decided to start this thread where you can give details of the booking available.

Please note:

- The accommodation is to be sold for the price it was booked - no money should be generated from the exchange.
- The details are posted here, but the correspondence should happen via PM. As soon as the subject is closed (accommodation sold, or date expired), the poster needs to notify a Moderator, who will then remove the post.
- Please do not abuse this system. If you resort to it often, your posts will be removed, and in severe cases, your account may be banned.

Hope you find this facility helpful.

Thank you, Sanparks.

I hope people will make use of it, and give someone else a change to sleep some nights in other camps if there was no more space available.
Good interaction will be neccesary though.

Great news! I recently sold my Father's accommodation at Pretoriuskop to a forum member and it went very smoothly. My dad would have lost his entire amount paid if he had cancelled the booking. It was as simple as arranging the payment and then contacting reservations to alter the name the booking is made in.

Thank you SANParks for posting this here. I think its a great idea, and I am sure the members will stick to your rules.

I will be keeping an eye out here, (just to let you all know :wink: )

I really do think this can work. :clap:

Available Lower Sabie 15 to 20 June 2017

Unread post by Hannovdl » Thu Jan 19, 2017 11:11 am

We have a booking for 15 to 20 June 2017 (6 nights) in a BD3U (unit number 18) at Lower Sabie. Unfortunately, we might not be able to go anymore and would like to know if someone has similar accommodation (in the south of the park) reserved between 1 and 20 July 2017 and would like to swop. According to SANParks we are allowed to transfer reservations.

I’m not trying to sell the reservation, but merely want to try and swop before cancelling the reservation.

If you have a reservation that you would like to swop/transfer, please send me a message.
