    Default Sanparks accommodation re-opening for overnight visitors? When

    We are all aware that Sanparks are open for self drive day visits. Sanparks issued a press release stating that they have started recalling their personnel involved in accommodation service and after training they expect to re-open for overnight visitors soon.

    I have not seen any further updates in this regard. I would appreciate some information or update. I have a reservation for 9 -19 July and need to make arrangements around this.

    Thank you everybody, stay safe.

    Unless someone has inside info, I just don't think anyone knows. So many people are asking daily on FB and I've not seen a single indication of when it will open.

    Hope yours works out, we cancelled our reservation for late July.

    The Minister did not say too much, more focus on restaurants

    Remember, Sanparks falls under Ministry of Environmental Affairs and not tourism.

    It was the same issue when Minister of Tourism declared self drive legal, but the relevant Ministry (Environmental Affairs) did not issue any guidance or promulgated any Regulations at first...

    I have moved a booking at Addo from en June to end July. The booking was fully paid for. The have now sent me 3 incorrect invoices for payment.
    Apparently they are inundated with calls and emails. Is it because they have to do thing incorrectly over and over?

    No it's because of the Covid disruption ..worldwide

    You missed a good joke. Soles are under the feet. Souls are the others.
