Map of Kruger Park Roads

Unread postby DuQues » Tue May 17, 2005 11:47 am

For all you people who do not have a map of Kruger National Park handy: Here is a map!
With your leftmousebotton depressed you can move the map, with the righthand one you can zoom in or out.
Enjoy!

The blue bokkies on maps represent waterholes.

Yes you can usually buy your KNP mapbook (my most current one is published by Honeyguide) at the gate, altho sometimes they are out of stock in the language you prefer — but then you can just wait and try the shop at your first camp.
The map book shows all the details and gives all the information you'll need and also has pix of most of the common animals and birds — altho a good field guide will give better pix and more details.

I am prefacing this by saying it may sound like a silly question, but what is the difference between the different coloured routes?
I assume that the thick blue line represents the river, but am wondering about the Thin Blue routes, Thick red route, Thin Green route and the Yellow route.

Obviously you can buy several in the Park!!

I like the Honeyguide map best. Its much clearer than several others on sale in January.

Its called the Kruger National Park Map, available in several languages. Honeyguide Publications.

That's the best one yes, in my eyes.
And I think you can buy it at Kalahari.net?
They deliver overseas at very reasonable prices, good service too.
I would add a few other goodies to keep the shipping cost a low percentage...
Maybe add a bird book like Sasol or Roberts?
Mammals book? Well, a whole library to choose from. ;)

I have just received this map and thought it very useful in order to calculate distances from the various towns around the park. :D

Fantastic!

Although we know the area pretty well, this map is very clear and stylised. It leaves out all the other features which tend to clog up other maps, in cases when all you want are road numbers and distances.

Thanks, Elsa.

Garmap and KNP

Unread postby David Maritz » Mon Feb 07, 2011 11:57 am

I have the latest software of Garmap and all the maps loaded.

Now to my knowledge and printed maps of KNP I have seen there is quite a number of roads available to travel on Garmap and it is more that are shown on the printed maps?

Is there anybody that has traveled some of these additional roads or are they management roads as well?

I am trying to map all my roads and once in KNP to tell Mr Finkelstein (GPS) where to go to and from there I can just laze away and drive and if I am waiting I can also check my time of arrival and kilo's left.

It always ends up in where to go? Where is the map? Give the map to me!

Mr Finkestein will talk to me and I will steer into that direction!

You are only allowed to drive a small amount of roads, the rest is indeed management roads, roads for "reserved guests only" (like to bushcamps or consessions) and firebreaks.
And 4x4 tracks of course, which you are not allowed to do with anything but a 4x4,

David Maritz , beware of those Garmap roads . I assisted confused people near Orpen dam in December with directions , they thought they were at Orpen gate , this was minutes before gate closing time and they still had 2 hours of travelling to the gate .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.
