Pilanesberg Accommodation Specials 2016 - accommodation near Sun City.
If you have accommodation you want us to let out, mail us. We take roughly 10% comm, and we confirm ownership..
Specials payable as soon as booked, unless otherwise arranged - the owners want peace of mind!
Note dates can't be changed, and if you change your mind, then you'll have to sell it on. Cancellation
refunds do not apply to the below specials. To book mail travelinafrica@gmail.com  - 6 Nov 2016
Please note that I can only book the units working weekdays before 16h00...
Full payment required for these rates - book, pay, get confirmed & it's done and dusted! Add 1,5 % for cash deposits, or R150 for overseas transfers in ZAR.

Lastly: These chalets can get snapped up anytime.... as we are dealing with an incredibly popular destination. The self catering rates are far better than the Lodge and Resort rates. I'll give you strictly till x-time & x-day to pay & if you default, consider your option null & void without notification. I will give an option to a new query & you will have to get in the queue if still interested.
