Regulations relating to vehicle mass

Unread postby Butch Robertson » Thu Mar 26, 2015 9:29 am

I am in the process of acquiring a 4x4 motorhome with which Swambo and I plan to hit the road in few years time. I have been told that various Parks in SA and elsewhere in Africa charge higher vehicle entry fees and also deny access to certain roads if the vehicle has a mass of more than 4000kg.
I have searched but cannot find any information on this relating to SANParks.
Does anyone have any knowledge on this?
Thanks for your time.

Hi Butch Robertson and a warm welcome to the forum :gflower:

Please have a look here Park Rules

Vehicles of a carrying capacity exceeding 4 000kg, buses or any vehicles with more than 25 seats, are restricted to the tar roads.


I do hope this helps.

Enjoy the motorhome!!!

Thanks Lion Queen. This helps a lot although it limits my choices. Who wants to stick to tar roads only?
