Hi all, new poster, but long time reader, have received much great information here.
We have secured a campsite at Mpayathutlwa for 3 nights Feb 2015 and will be arriving from Nossob. We are looking at a Toyota Hilux (renting) (had one when we visited the park this past Feb and loved it, just without the camping gear) with either a rooftop tent, or a smaller fibreglass canopy camper. The canopy camper looks great, but I am concerned that there does not seem to be a way to carry extra fuel. With one way driving of approximately 200km (400 km round trip), and a total range of about 650 to 700 km maximum, does this allow us enough kms to do some driving once there? Seems even to do a couple of the loops in the area per day could easily add 100km per day, thus making the drive back to Nossob possibly short on fuel.
We like to drive, but do most people tend to stay put once in the Mabuasehube area, or should we look at the roof top tent so that we can carry extra fuel?
Thanks so much!

Me too! - lol.
I am thinking maybe a lot of people do not drive from Nossob to Mabuasehube and return the same way, but exit out into Botswana?? Should I be looking at just arriving from the Botswana side? Not sure that this would necessarily save a lot of time or distance though, will have to research that. We are flying in and out of Upington so if we did that, we would head up towards Tshabong I assume. We only have the one night at Nossob before Mabuasehube, so do have a little flexibility.
Thanks for any ideas or thoughts.
