The chance will always be there, but very unlikely.

We found one in the bedroom once, after walking barefoot in the dark to the loo :shock:

We ushered it out in the morning.

Hello

I will be coming to KTP next week, and it's the first time I will drive there myself. I have two questions re. driving in KTP. I am sure the answers are somewhere on the Forums already but I haven't found them yet. So I hope someone can help me.

- I know about reducing the pressure in the tyres. But how many bar should I reduce it to? Does is depend on the type of vehicle I will be driving? My rental car will be a Hyundai IX35 (2x4) or similar.
I suppose that I can reduce the pressure at the filling station at TR... ?

- I seem to remember reading something about leaving your permit at the reception and telling where you are going when you leave camp. Do I remember correctly? If yes, what exactly is the procedure? And what do you do in the wilderness camps that don't have a reception?

Any help would be much appreciated. :)

Hi Katja

Sorry, can't help with everything but I'm sure someone will get back to you soon that will be able to help.... especially with details of the tyre pressure ...

What I DO know is this - yes, you can deflate at the garage at TR when you arrive - if I remember correctly the sign there says about 1.5 or 1.6 bar - think its on a notice at the petrol station but I think it has been scratched out and changed so now I'm not too sure what it should be - ok just checked my old entry permit and that says 1.6 bar :thumbs_up:

Can't help with the wilderness camps unfortunately ( :mrgreen: ) but at the 3 main camps you keep your permit with you during the day and hand it in when you return "home" in the evenings - then you go and fetch it first thing in the morning before you go out for your first drive and let them know where you are going that day and they write it down on the back of your permit and in their book and they give you your permit back which you keep with and hand in when you get back etc or hand in at the next camp you are staying at ..... hope that helps .... had me confused the first time until I realised the permit has to "sleep" in their office :redface: - then I was ok ... sounds silly now I know but it helped .... At TR the hokkie where you leave and collect your permit is at the entry gate, at the others it is at reception ...

Have a wonderful holiday :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Hi Katja :D
the pressure, if I remember correctly is 1600 bar... not important what car... it's a mesure for a tires
you can do that a thet petrol station at Twee Rivieren :thumbs_up:

Yes, the permit is to know if you are coming back... from the desert :wink: = no permit at the reception = go on convoy to search you :whistle:

at TR, Nossob and Mata 2x you could do the check in for the small camps :thumbs_up:

:hmz: next week... :dance: have a great time, great travel, great sightings... and return with a... travel tale :D
