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.

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

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.

Hi Guys

Due to an unfortunate booking mixup I am desperately looking for accommodation for Monday august 8th at Mopani.
We have a family reunion and for some reason the booking is one night short.

Please if anyone can help.. It is for 4 people.

My number is 082 418 3829
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"
