Can anybody let me know what the gate time for Karoo are in December or where I can find them as I do not seem to be able to find them on the Karoo home page. We will be there from the 27th Dec to the 1st Jan
Thanks
Debbie

Hi DinkyBird
Don't mean to sound to blond (or grey) but does this mean that one can go on game drives until 10pm??

Must say he looks cool in pink :twisted:

Debbie, I think (will need to confirm) this is only for the road between the gate and the camp. From the camp onwards further into the park, different gate times apply.

Yes only applies to the main road from the gate to the camp. But there are sometimes animals to "watch" on the main road. :P

The boom gates leading to the game areas are closed at sunset.
