Got a very good one emailed to me Spookie, send me a pm with your email addy and I will send it to you. Also, I have filled in a request on the Mokala pages for updates to be done. Maybe you could also do it to help speed up the process.

Hi OD

I saw the notice regarding the drives in reception and yes, there are drives available. Morning drives, afternoon drives, night drives (18H00-21H00). I am not sure about the times of the other drives. There is also a rock engraving drive.

Unfortunately I don't have the updated price but it is around R110 per person and R150 for the rock graving drive. I could be mistaken.

Thanks for all the info guys! Sounds Great! :clap:

Does anyone know where i can find a map of Mokala that shows possible hike trails and the various roads in the park...

I've checked the SanParks website and searched Google but I haven't found much... :wall:

I have got 2 more requests for the map. Does anyone else want it. If so please PM me and I will send it later tonight.

Good news. I for an email from Admin, who said that the Mokala pages would shortly be updated and hopefully with the map that I will surreptitiously send to her as well!

not sure if this has been mentioned before (I'm too lazy to read the entire thread):

- they do hand out (very basic) maps of the park when you check in (although this basic map was more than sufficient for us)

- the one night we stayed there the night drive went out even with only one customer (me)

- on the N12 there are now signposts for Mokala NP

My son is included in one of the rugby teams that will take part in the annual Craven Week. This year the Craven Week is hosted by GWK rugby and it will be held in Kimberley from 10 - 16 July 2011.

The teams he plays for, has matches on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and we are considering a visit to Mokala National Park on either Wednesday or Friday.

Are day visits allowed? If yes, any recommendations?

Thank you!

I am sure you'll enjoy this little gem of a park. Especially if you are into birding (smaller species and photography). Try and do all the loops but I won't recommend taking the road to Lilydale for a day visitor.

Hope you'll enjoy it.
