The first month of the year is just about over and those who are planning a trip to the Kruger National Park, to enjoy one of the wilderness or backpacker trails, can look forward to saving some money in the month of February.
In a press release issued by SANParks, the association announced that this particular offer only applies to new reservations made from the 28th of January 2020 and will be applicable to one of these trails. Discounted dates run from the 2nd of Feb to the 29th of Feb, and are all subject to availability.
The following trails will be included in discounts:
Wolhuter Wilderness Trail
Nyalaland Wilderness Trail
Lonely Bull Backpack Trail
Sweni Wilderness Trail
Mphongolo Backpack Trail
Napi Wilderness Trail
Mathikithi Wilderness Trail
Some of the discounts go up to 40% of the initial prices and the packages for the trails are broken down as follows:
Bookings of 1 or 2 guests – 15% off
Bookings of 3 or 4 guests – 20% off
Bookings of 5 or 6 guests – 30% off
Bookings of 7 or 8 guests – 40% off
As for the accommodation for the Wilderness Trails, guests can look forward to staying at the base camp where there are four two-bed units and meals are included. Fees for single occupants is regrettably not being reduced with this discount. For the Backpacking Trails, guests will need to bring their own bedding along as well as enough food to sustain them for the duration of their stay.
It is important for guests to note that the discount is only applicable to the trail and not to their accommodation or their conservation fees, purchases, other activities and those meals not included in the trail.
A further 1% Community Fund charge will be applicable to the reservation costs and the standard payment. SANParks furthermore says that “modification and cancellation rules apply.”
Guests looking for more logistical details to use for their planning, will receive all the information they need when they have made their booking. Bookings can be made by calling the SANParks call centre (012 428 9111) or via email (email@example.com).
