Reservations Underwhelming at Kruger National Park

Reservations for World Cup accommodations at Kruger National Park have been much lower than expected, according to the FIFA-contracted company that is controlling the bookings.

"Very little" of the accommodation previously reserved for Match had been sold, said South African National Parks tourism and marketing manager Glenn Phillips.

So far, through Match, they had about 50 bookings in Skukuza and 16 bookings in three other camps.

Match is a company contracted by Fifa to provide ticketing, accommodation and event information technology for the World Cup.
