Hey everybody,
sorry, this may be a stupid question, but does the "Always stay in vehicle" rule also count for Tankwa Karoo National Park?
I am from Germany and have so far only been to Kruger, so I was wondering whether it is possible do walk around Tankwa whilst camping there...?

Thanks for your help already,
Rolf

:D Hi Rulefiggur, this is what i can find. :thumbs_up: Enjoy. :)

To ensure a safe and joyful trip through our parks, kindly adhere to the rules and regulations
under the Protected Areas Act.

Quote:
Rule 5.
STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE – In most of the national parks there is a possible threat from dangerous
animals. In such parks guests may only alight from vehicles in designated areas. No part of your
body may protrude from a window or sunroof and doors should remain closed at all times;

We have camped there many times. For sure you can walk around or do some hikes - Tankwa Park is not even fenced. You can walk as much as you like and even cycle, but you are not allowed to drive around after hours (night time). Enjoy !!
