I had a reservation at Maroela Camp from 16 September 2020.    I have just been told (today) that Maroela is closed till December for (very slow) renovations.  Anybody else that has a reservation expect a cancellation notice.

I had to either accept a credit or change to another camp.   I could get 2 at Skukuza or 3 at Pretoriuskop.  I selected the latter. 

For information.

Regards

Len, ek klok ook 2 Mei 2021 vir 1 aand in by Maroela en skuif dan na Satara.  Watse opgraderings of opknappings by die kamp neem 4 maande?  

Hierdie werk is dan ook nou skielik besluit want nie almal wat besprekings het , is al in kennis gestel nie.

Media Release: SANParks Announces Accommodation Booking Rules For Lockdown Level Two 18 August 2020 Following the announcement made over the weekend by President Cyril Ramaphosa that the country will enter the COVID-19 (coronavirus) alert Level two with effect from midnight, 17 August 2020 and the subsequent gazetting of the amended regulations, South African National Parks (SANParks) would like to clarify how it will manage overnight accommodation in its various national parks. This according to SANParks Chief Executive Officer, Fundisile Mketeni who said as economic activities have been gradually opening, a Risk-Adjusted Strategy has been at the core of every sector or industry planning in an effort to save lives. "In dealing with the expected accommodation bookings influx, SANParks has aligned itself with a similar strategy for overnight bookings particularly for inter-provincial travellers to national parks." Mketeni said the gazette 43620 issued on Monday 17 August 2020 stipulates that all accommodation establishments, restrict the number of persons allowed in such establishments to not more than 50 percent of the facility. "Practically this means that SANParks will be obligated to amend or cancel bookings in parks and camps that are currently booked beyond that capacity and in addition, to reject new bookings that may lead to operating above the regulated 50 percent threshold." He said that while SANParks understands the inconvenience and the frustration this will create, our reservations team are on hand to assist with regards to reallocating bookings from one camp to another within the same park to ensure that we are operating in adherence to the law at all times. According to Mketeni, in instances where a paid forward booking has to be cancelled, SANParks will apply a transparent and fair process of LIFO (last-in-first-out) principle… "implying that the person that booked earlier will receive preference over someone that booked later." He said affected guests will be contacted and offered alternative facilities or alternative dates… "and no guests will be charged cancellation fees if an eventual cancellation occurs and is due to COVID-19 related circumstances." In conclusion, Mketeni said this time has called on every person to make individual and collective sacrifices in minimising the risk of the spread of COVID-19. He urged guests to the national parks to appreciate that the regulations and SANParks' own protocols, as inconvenient as they may seem, are towards a greater and common good.

Geert and your point is what?   Sanparks Pretoria referred me to Orpen gate to check on my fully paid reservation as the Head Office and satellite offices were not aware of any issue.   Orpen gate then told me that Maroela has recently been closed for renovations.  The closure is not linked to the numbers in the camp.    Maroela is a small camp that only hosts caravans so what renovations can take so long ? 

From what I see on various websites quite a number of caravan camps are booked beyond the 50% threshold.

Ek wonder of die ouens reg lees. Ek kry die volgende boodskap op Snaparke vir Maroela: ""Apologies: Either

(A) this period is fully booked,

(B) you are checking a period beyond the 13 months in the future, or

(C) the accommodation is out of commission due to renovations.

 

Ek wonder öf dit nie (A) hierbo is nie.

 

Ekself is geboek van 2 tot 6 Okt 2020 en hoop nie ek kry ook n onwelkome epos nie.embarassed

Malan, skakel Orpen hek by 013 735 6355 en vra bevestiging van jou bespreking.  My bespreking was geruime tyd reeds ten volle betaal en is nou gekanselleer met punt (C) hierbo as rede.

Wat bedoel jy my punt is wat? Ek gesels saam en wat Malan hierbo noem kan maak dat my posting sin maak, want gaan kyk online....dan sal jy sien dat daar kort kort nog spasie bespreekbaar is by Maroela van nou tot einde November

Theo, ons is by Maroela bespreek vir drie aande, 10, 11 en 12/5 waarna ons Balule toe gaan vir 4 aande.

My oorspronklike bespreking vir 'n maand by 6 kampe is aanvanklik op 25/6/2019 gedoen en toe reeds ten volle betaal.  As gevolg van die Covid-inperking, het ek dit op 20/7/2020 uitgeskuif na Mei 2021.  Dus, as die 50% reël toegepas word soos in die persverklaring hierbo uiteengesit, glo ek ek val buite die "last in, first out" groep omdat my bespreking al 'n tyd gelede gedoen en bevestig is en behoort dus nie uitgeskop te word nie.

Ek wonder werklik ook watter opgraderings gaan só lank duur  -  dalk bou hulle 'n splinternuwe ablusieblok en vergroot die kamp vir nog kampeerplekke ?  Dit sal nogal jammer wees want dis dan nog 'n stukkie nostalgie daarmee heen.

Ek het 5 minute gelede met Kamp bestuurder by Orpen gesels en hy se dat Maroela se ablusie afgebreek een oorgebou word omdat die waterpype vrot is.
