Hi CliveG and welcome! The roads in the park are great but you wont have any problems! A bit sandy and norrow sometimes but dont think it would be a problem. The 20 odd km from the main tar road to the entrance gate to the park is very corogated, just take it slowly... Might be better now though, dont know...

Are the roads in Mokala navigable with a sedan?

No problem in wintertime, I don't know about the summertime.

In general all the roads are fine for sedan during dry season. But it can be a problem and not accessible when it have rained alot.
But sure reception will advice you accordingly when needed.

Hi, I see that there are no braai facilities etc in these bungalows. Does anyone know if there are communal facilities to braai etc or does one have to eat in the restaurant only?

Hi bushhappyfred
I copied this

Mosu Lodge

* Luxury Executive Suites (2 units)
* Self Catering (braai, micro wave, two plate stove, fridge, utensils, cutlery & crockery)
* One Bedroom with double bed with electric blanket
* WC, shower, bath, hand basin
* Fire place and air conditioner

* Semi Luxury Rooms (13 units)
* Non-self Catering (only electric kettle, no braai area, no fridge)
* One Bedroom with two single beds
* WC and shower, hand basin
* Wall-fitted heater and ceiling fan

from here I don't know if it is of any help??

Hi bushhappyfred, as Dotty pointed out its only the Luxury Executive Suites that have braai facilities.
When staying in the semi luxury units, you will have to have your meals at the restaurant. There's no communal braai facilities.

Mosu Lodge?

Never heard of it. Is it new? Where?

Is it possible to drive with a normal car in Mokala NP or do I need a 4x4-Car? I want to visit the park in November 2010 after two weeks in Kruger NP.

Hi taxinms,

We were in Mokala in December and there were several sedans in the park.

It should be no problem, the roads are pretty good gravel, although the road from the N12 to the park gate can be a bit corrugated. Just lower your tyre pressures to ease the ride.

Welcome to the forum taxinms
I have done Mokala a few times with a sedan and had no problems. The only time the roads will be a problem is when it had rained heavily.
As Senyetse said the access road to the entrance gate to the park can be very corrugated, so best is to take it easy and slow.

@taxinms
if you want to be shure to drive the whole park, I recommend you to choose a 4x4. We were in Mokala last November and found very bad roads caused by heavy rainfalls. Most of the roads were closed for one or two days and after opening them, several of them could only be passed with a 4x4.
Its a beautiful park, you should visit and enjoy it.

Hi,

I've browsing the forum for information on Lilydale rest camp at Mokala National Park. I've also conducted a wider search on Google and flickr to see what people are saying about it, but haven't really seen or heard anything concrete.

I'm planning a trip to Mokala in mid-March and we're going to stay at Lilydale.

I'd like to know if anyone has stayed at Lilydale and what it was like there. I know that it's situated away from the main part of Mokala, which is not going to be a problem. What I'd like to know is what the camp itself is like. Is it well-maintained? Does it have a view of any kind? What were the units like? Staff friendly and helpful? How long does it take to drive from Lilydale to Mokala?

And it would be awesome if anyone has photographs of Lilydale. I've had a couple of less than satisfactory experiences with new parks, which is why I'm trying to do as much homework as possible before getting there to avoid disappointment.

Many thanks.
