The last official word by SANParks posted on 11 March 2013:
South African National Parks (SANParks) has cancelled the Kgalagadi Desert Cycle Tour which was scheduled to take place in September this year.
The tour was first moved from the north of Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park to the south, but after the new proposed route was chosen, interest in the event was lower than anticipated and the decision was made to possibly relocate the tour to Augrabies Falls National Park.
The Desert Cycle Tour is an activity that fits into the Augrabies Falls National Park Management plan and carries the full support of management. By relocating the Tour, participants can also expect significantly longer legs of the tour than what was planned for Kgalagadi. We are currently awaiting confirmation of the various routes from Park management and will keep you updated.

We will ask Lesego to confirm that the position has not changed, but I really doubt it has, and the email you received must be from a gremlin in the system SG.
We will lock this topic until we have a reply from Lesego to post here.
