Kudo's to the staff at Satellite Reservations Offices

Unread postby Guinea Pig » Thu Jan 16, 2014 9:14 am

I made 2 bookings within a short period of time for Kruger, Augrabies and Kgalagadi, plus a call that turned out to be on the wrong date and ones to amend bookings.

I simply went down the list of telephone numbers until I got an answer and got through to Main Reservations in Pretoria, Reservations House in Pretoria and Johannesburg and Cape Town Tourism.

In all instances I was helped professionally and quickly. 8) All our bookings went as good as seamless.

Especially this morning with bookings opening for December/January. We got exactly what we wanted so that was an added bonus, but even if we didn't, service was as good as I'm used to in Europe.

Hoping there is a way of passing on the compliments to each individual office? :gflower:

(Sorry, I'm getting confused whom I called when. :lol: )

I was helped by Corienne this morning and as frazzled as she was, the bookings and payments were done right first time in less than 30 minutes. 8) Bookings because you have to book and pay separately for each park, in this case Augrabies and Kgalagadi.

Overall stunning service.

GP - I always use Reservation House at Heathway Centre, near Cresta, in Johannesburg/Randburg. I sometimes phone, but usually go in person to see them (luckily I'm not too far away!). I have a wonderful relationship with one particular person there and she always goes the extra mile for me.

Great service, always.

Thanks for taking the time to post these compliments :thumbs_up:

I will pass them on. I am sure they will be appreciated. Today is a "hectic" day for reservations although it seems they are doing a sterling job and are fully in control :wink:

Well Done to all :clap: :clap: :clap:

Yup Kudos to the guys

Got hold of them after 50 minutes, they were cool as can be.

Must say though SANPARK's staff in general are awesome.
Lady at Tamboti, (Her name eludes me at the moment) just top notch.

I concur with the Kudo's to the staff at the Satellite offices. In particular the Fairie Glen Satellite office - they provide fast, friendly and efficient services.
