You don't need a 4x4 but high ground clearance is recommended - a Ford Ka is probably not the best choice of vehicle.

Do you think we could make it in a peugoet 405 kombi.
Is it rather pothole or just very rough terrain. We are not worried about our old car, would just have to know that we would get thru.
How do we book this, can't find it in the Addo accommodation listing.
Thanks for answering,
greeting from the freezing Northern Hemisphere, looking forward to getting back home.

There are a few rocky river sections to get through (the river beds are mostly dry so water shouldn't be a problem). Take it easy and get out to move rocks etc if you need to (you are allowed to get out of your vehicle in the Kabouga section).

Hi gil,
As j-ms says, it is mostly the rocks underneath that could damage a low-clearance car that are the problem.

To book Kabouga, you can contact the reception office (Tel: 042 2338600) or email addoenquiries@sanparks.org
