THE Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (Zimparks) is in the process of introducing an online booking system allowing clients to process bookings via the internet.
The system will be in place by December 1.
The authority said the system will allow for credit card payments direct to the authority with instant confirmations being received and the new system automatically generates e-mail alerts with details of booking.
“This is part of the Authority’s effort to bring efficiency in terms of processing accommodation bookings. The previous system was resulting in double bookings. It is our intention to ensure that the upcoming system will address that problem,” it said in a statement.
It said the system would be introduced in phases with the first phase being accessible by the Zimparks central booking office. Thereafter, various stations will follow to allow the group to test the system’s performance prior to launching public access.
“We plan to open up the system to our valued clients by the 1st of December 2015.”
