Accommodations - Reservation Deadline is March 31, 2018

We have a group booking for very reasonably-priced and conveniently-located accommodations in the Skukuza Rest Camp in the Kruger National Park. 

For more information on the types of accommodation visit the San Parks website here.

Accommodation bookings for the symposium have to be made through one of the three individuals listed below. Do not use any other website or agent. Due to the distances between rest camps in the Kruger National Park and restrictions on travel outside the camp after dark, all accommodation for the conference has been reserved at Skukuza. As a reminder, entrance gates open at 06:00 AM and close at 17:30 (5:30 PM).

To make a reservation in the group booking, complete the following steps:

  1. Choose the type of accommodation suitable to your needs from the attached list (also include below)
  2. Complete this Lodging Application Form, and attach it in an email to one of the following reservation coordinators:
  3. Quote the reference number for the group booking R5860702
  4. Ask for the type of accommodation chosen in Step 1 and mention the number of people for the unit. Some units have two single beds, others three and some 4-8 beds. The third and the last columns in the attached group reservation options indicate the number of beds available per unit.
  5. SANPARKS will make a booking for you within the group booking with your own reservation number and the date on which you must pay the deposit to secure the booking.
  6. The reservation will be sent to you by email and the accommodation can be paid to SANPARKS by credit card. (This guide includes the instructions on how to pay online using your credit card.)

Helpful Reminders:

PLEASE NOTE: All prices are per unit per night, not per person. This is the only accommodation available for this period and so bookings cannot be made through the SanParks website or central reservations. As you are booked for the symposium the daily conservation fees that are usually charged if you stay in the Kruger Park will not be charged for the period of the conference (this does not include Thursday) however they would be charged if you choose to stay over for additional night days either before or after the conference.Once you arrive, you would collect your keys from the conference venue and not from the main reception.

Attendees are reminded that booking of accommodation for their requirements for the symposium is their own responsibility. IASWG will not be making any accommodation bookings however for a limited amount of time the conference center has reserved accommodation for attendees attending our symposium.


Accommodation Options

Accommodation at Skukuza caters to a variety of guest requirements. Choose anything from luxury, river-view bungalows, to self-catering bungalows.

Bungalows: round–walled, single-room African style units with thatched roofs, 2 or 3 beds per unit, equipped with en-suite ablutions (most with showers, but some with baths). Some units have air-conditioning, some have fans. Kitchenettes vary: some have hotplates and sinks; some have only sinks, while some have neither. Cutlery and crockery can be provided and hired from reception.

The units each have a double bed, quality decor, air-conditioning and television offering limited DSTV (Digital Satellite Television) channels.

Bungalows along the river frontage have a more modern design with glass sliding doors.
