SANParks opens bookings for winter 2015

2014-07-17 11:16
Cape Town – SANParks has announced that it will be opening holiday bookings for various parks under its management for the June and July 2015 period early next week.

Bookings will open on Tuesday, 22 July from 07:30 for call centres and email bookings. Online bookings will open on 23 July 2014.  

SANParks General Manager: Sales and Marketing, Bheki Zwane said the reason for opening both months at the same time is to make it easy for customers to book their holiday accommodation and activities well in advance as well as allowing them to plan their itinerary with just one booking, unlike in previous years where they had to book separately for June and July.

He added that accommodation bookings in various national parks are always in demand during this peak winter school holiday period, which often leaves holiday makers disappointed for not securing desired accommodation as these are popular destinations.  

“Holiday makers must be mindful that available inventory in all parks will be made available on a first come first served basis,” he said.  

Visitors will be required to make the first deposit of 50%, 30 days after the booking has been made.  The second deposit of 50% must be paid 60 days before arrival.  

Bookings can be done at Central Reservations on 012 428 9111 or by email on, at park camp receptions or at the SANParks Satellite offices throughout the country.  

A list of all satellite offices can be obtained on the SANParks website.
