Eksteensfontein - Vioolsdrif

Unread post by marras » Tue Jun 30, 2015 8:39 am

My intention is to ride my dual purpose motor cycle from Port Nolloth to Sendelingsdrif via Eksteensfontein then along the river on the Namibian side to Vioolsdrif and the back to Port Nolloth via Eksteensfontein. I know the SanParks parks do not allow motorcycles but I'm unsure if these roads are actually in the park. They seem to skirt the boudaries. I'm therefore unsure if I can travel this route by motorcycle. The roads are on all the road maps and I assume national roads. Can anyone advise me on this?

A warm welcome to you, Marras.

That sounds very interesting. I wish you a good ride.

Dear marras,

The only portion of the route that you will use that runs through the park will be from the park gate to Sendelingsdrif. You will however be able to drive along the road from the park gate to Sendelingsdrif, but you will not be allowed to leave the road and drive into the park itself.

Hope the above answers the uncertainties you had.

Enjoy the trip :thumbs_up: .
