I had to look at the Sanparks map to double check my list
KNP
KTP (before it was a transfrontier park)
Augrabies
MZNP
All 3 GR parks
Bontebok
Agulhas
TMNP
Karoo
Golden Gate

Can't confirm, but I may have been to Richtersveld (did a multi-day rafting trip on the Orange years ago). I also frequent a reserve adjoining Marakele NP.

At the top of my todo list:
Mapungubwe
Addo
Marakele
KTP (again)

Yes, if I were to rate all the parks on a scale of 1 to 10, Mountain Zebra would be in my top 5 parks. Great scenery and environment, variety of fauna and flora, comfortable accommodation, very well-maintained and well-planned road network, friendly staff, etc. It all indicates good management. I would recommend 3 nights at least (2 full days) to do it justice.

Addo
Agrabies
Tstisikamma
Knysna
Wilderness
Golden Gate
Karoo
Kgalagadi
Kruger
Mapungubwe
Marekele
Mountain Zebra
Table Mountain
West Coast

OTHERS
Hluhluwe
Umfolusi
Mkuzi
Ndumu

Plus many other Nature Reserves.

I do agree that all are different and each has its own attraction but my addiction is still Kruger - it calls me all the time. The other that also calls me is Kgalagadi but it is so far. For birding and tree beauty - I love Ndumu. There is nothing like the bush.....

:shock: Was thinking that if SANParks had a passport - some of you mites would probably be on your second or even third passports - based on your visits! Well done you guys!
