Booking required at the moment?

Postby stobi_de » 11 Jun 2015 15:27

it is similar to a question I asked some weeks ago.

I hope, that we can reapair the car very quick (our friend Jaco fixed the main problem...) and start a small trip to MOZ and Kruger or the north and ZIM.
Are there holidays at the moment in your country?
I can not book in advance, because I do not know, when we have finished our job.
I heard, that it is impossible to go to the parks, if there are holidays.

I sent this question to sanparks and I got the answer, that I will get very fast an answer - that's all. :rolling:

Hi Frank

The only Park that's really difficult to get in, in school holidays is the KNP. They also limited day visitors, but if you have an overnight booking, no problem. Out of season = no problem - look at their online availability. Even in school holidays you should get accommodation somewhere.

Frank, you have not given us dates.

We have a long weekend this weekend, and the Gauteng schools have just started their exams, holiday starts on the 26th of June, so you only have a small window of opportunity.

Here is a link for you:

KTP is also almost impossible to get a booking during the school holidays. I would also not recommend going during that time - the park is crazy!
