Booking game lodges through internet last minute deal compan

Hi, My husband and I will be in South Africa in June. We are planning to spend some of our trip in one of the private game reserves near Kruger. The prices for these places can be quite steep and I was wondering if anyone has used last minute internet booking sites like Bushbreaks before and if they experienced any problems. I would greatly appreciate peoples advice on how to get the best deal.

I recently booked our private game lodge in Kruger through a travel agent in South Africa. I am typically a DIY traveler, but the agent gave us a better price than booking direct.

I recommend for you to contact a few agents and let them know which lodge you are interested in, and see what prices they can offer you.

You should contact a few agents, because it seems that the different lodges have different relationships and contracts with the various travel agencies, so the agent that can give you the best price might depend on where you want to stay at.

Hi there,

Some of these sites offer amazing deals!

However, please just make sure you read the fine print; Often they are only available to South African citizens.

For a budget friendly, but great value lodge try Gomo Gomo in the Klaserie.

all the best,
