Media Release: South African National Parks (SANP) Amends Rules on Deposits and Pensioners Discount
South African National Parks (SANP) is pleased to announce that it has amended its policy on deposits for visits to parks with immediate effect. Unlike the old policy which required full payment within 30 days of booking, the new one only requires that 33% of the amount be paid within 30 days of booking and the balance 30 days prior to arrival at the parks.
The rules for cancellations remain unchanged and are as follows:
- 31 days before visit, full refund
- 30 to 15 days before visit, 75% refund
- 14 to 7 days before visit, 50% refund
- Less that 7 days before visit, no refund
- A R50 processing fee will be charged for all cancellations.
The policy that made the Pensioners Discount not applicable to the Satara, Skukuza, and Lower Sabie restcamps in the Kruger National has also been revised. Pensioners are now welcome to book these rest camps except for weekends, school holidays and public holidays. The pensioners discount is 40% and is enjoyed by any SA citizen orpermanent resident 60 years or older. A valid ID document will be required upon arrival at parks for age verification purposes.
