Wow! I'm quite envious of some of these lists. Hopefully mine will soon look like that. So far, I've been to:

Augrabies Falls NP
Camdeboo NP
Golden Gate Highlands NP
Karoo NP
Kgalagadi Transfrontier park
Kruger NP
Mountain Zebra NP
Table Mountain NP
West Coast NP

Planning a trip to Mokala next month, too. That will bring the list up to 10. Can't wait!
