We're thinking of trying to book Kruger in the June/July holidays next year. At least with it starting at the end of June we only need to worry about availability in July. When will booking options open for that? In a week or at the start of August? :-?

It should start 11 months before, but I am not sure :-?

As I haven't come across some special booking period for the June/July holidays like SP sometimes do, the booking for July should only open in August.
