South African National Parks (SANParks) has launched an exciting new product for Stokvels & Travel Clubs that will offer special payment terms and discounted rates at selected National Parks on particular dates.

Managing Executive: Tourism Development and Marketing, Hapiloe Sello, said, “Stokvel & Travel Club membership boasts many different types of personalities and profiles, ranging from the ordinary grandmother to the high earning CEO’s of companies and large corporate and public sector institutions. There are over 800 000 registered Stokvels and even more formal and informal travel clubs/ groups in South Africa. Travel clubs that qualify include groups of people who have special interests such as hiking or biking but also just groups of friends and large families that enjoy group travel.”

To qualify for the favourable payment terms, Stokvels and travel clubs have to register through the travel trade team in the Reservations department. Once registered with SANParks, the group will receive a client code that can be used whenever a booking is made. The client code will automatically qualify the group for favourable payment terms and special discounts.

Sello says, “unlike the traditional group travel that allows a group of individuals travelling together, our new Stokvel & Travel Club product allows a group of ten or more people to contribute money towards a combined visit to our parks on a future date of their choice.” The offers all include fully furnished accommodation, comfortable camp sides as well as activities for travel groups.
