4*4 trails in Karoo NP

Unread post by Minca » Sat Jul 09, 2016 4:10 pm


we will be visiting karro NP next february. we will be travelling through SA by a small camper with no 4*4.
I was reading the information about Karoo NP and found this:
There are four 4x4 eco-trails available to visitors in 4x4 vehicles, at no extra cost:
Nuweveld EcoTrail (90km) and Afsaal EcoTrail (13km) are available to visitors in 4x4 vehicles.

does this mean that 4X4 vehicles are available at the park which can be rented for these trails? or do you have to bring your own 4X4 vehicle?

hope anyone can help.

thanks in advance.

Hi M&M - you need to bring your own.

There are lovely drives in the park that you can do without a 4x4.

And if you have a high clearance vehicle, many of those 4x4 routes are quite OK without 4x4. I have a teeny Terios, and drive around someof them without engaging 4x4, and really nothing serious to worry about...
