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.

Hi Everybody,
I have a booking for 2 vehicles and 4 persons at Mabua (KTP Botswana side from the 25/9-30/9 and then 2 nights at Polentswa. Due to unfortunate situations I am left with 1 vehicle and am asking if anyone wants to take up the second vehicle. I will be at Mata Mata for a few days before.
Anyone interested can phone me on +27 82 451 4165 to discuss or +27 41 367 1999.
4x4 is absolutely essential.

I am looking for something (except a campsite) for the night of the 24th of October in Lower Sabie (which is fully booked) and would let a 2 beds-bungalow in Skukuza in exchange (for info, SKukuza is also fully booked except for campsites).

thanks for your help.

Good morning Kruger lovers...

I am going to Kruger Between Christmas and New year. I have a booking for 30 December at Skukuza and 31 December and 1 January at Pretoriuskop. I want to change to the first night at Pretoriuskop to another night at Skukuza. Is there anybody that knows of someone that has such accommodation (safari tent or 3 bed bungalow - nothing to expensive for 3 people) they cannot use anymore? :hmz:

Hi guys,

I already have a booking for Berg-en-Dal from 16 Dec'16 to 26 Dec'16 (Campsite).
With 27 Dec being a public holiday, I am keen to get another day in the Park. Is there anyone that have a campsite booking at Berg-en-Dal for the evening of 26 Dec'16 that they want to get rid of? :pray:


Thanks guys.

UPDATE: So after trolling the online booking system multiple times per day, every day, I finally find an open spot. :dance:

So the above post can be ignored.
Why do time fly when you are having fun?
