Thanks for the info everyone - one less night of dishes .....
Looking forward the butterfish (I've only had it once and as a non-fishy person I was bowled over so here's hoping it is on the menu!!!!)

Yes, shouldn't be a problem. E.g. i renewed a wildcard at an remote place like Sendlingsdrift (Richtersveld) without fuss. Just go to reception.

Hi - Will be visiting Augrabies end April 2011 and am interesting in driving the 94km wilderness road. However, find information on this route scarce. E.g. where to book, grade of route, what to see on this road, etcetera. Please help.

Hi Matthee
You don't have to book the route,depending on your stay you will pay the tariff for day visitors or overnight visitors only,so there's no cost attached to the road.
You can do the road with a normal sedan vehicle or 4x4,the last option will enable you to reach 2 of the waterpoints as this was a initiatif to enhance game viewing.
The total lenghts of the road is 92km starting from the rest-camp/a map will be available at the reception,there is a longer route approximately 6hrs,shorter one is approximately 3hrs.
There is also a picnic site on the extended route.
All game species is reintroductions and the following can be seen,giraffes,red-hartebees,springbok,gemsbok,ostrich,hart-mann zebras,eland,kudu's, and althougt there are a lot of species it all depends on how lucky you are.
It is better to go out early for planning your route,the game areas gate opens at 6:30 and close at 7:00.
Other initiatiffs was to attached names to the routes,these will enable tourist to know which route to take and if something happens for instance vehicle problems,at least less time will be spent on searching.
Extended route-named as quiver loop,community of quiver trees can be found here.
Short route-hartmanns loop,possibility to see zebras in this area.
Hopes this help,if theres other questions regarding this,please asked.

Hi Lima
The roads in Augrabies Falls national park is open but only on the central section of the park,the western section is still closed.You will also be able to only visit the view points and would need a 4+4 vehicle to reach the area where the bridge is closed to Holombacht where the waterhole is.
Dont know when that section will be open or when repairings on the road will start as we have quit a lot of rain recently and is no use to repaired if the roads going to be washed away.

Hopes it help.

Thanks Guru,

I have n't a good map off the augrabies park. Only the one at the website of the park itself. So I can't really know where the bridge is and the holombacht waterhole. We have rented a 4x4 probably a toyota dubbelcap. Can we see a lot of the park even with the road damage? We will be there in august this year. It will be a one time visit i think, so we want to see as much as possible.
