Hi Mfezi
You can find a map of KTP on this site :

As there are not so many roads it can be sufficient to start planning :thumbs_up:

Hi Mfezi

You know, average travel time is much more important than km but for your information it's around :


Twee Rivieren to Mata Mata :115 km or +/- 3 hours
Twee Rivieren to Nossob : 125 km or +/- 4 hours
Nossob to Mata Mata : 142 km or +/- 4 hours and half

Enjoy :thumbs_up:

Hi Goronta

Thanks once again for the information. It is really much appreciated. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Why is it that the average travel time more important than the distance?

Although I did not see any report of rain in KTP thus far Bushbuddies, I would suggest you keep an eye on the 7 day forecast Here :hmz: .

We were in the park last week and no rain, 2 days some clouds, but not even one drop.

And this week in Upington we had lovely clouds late Tuesday afternoon but no rain. :( :(

The park is bone dry!! Really praying that we receive some rain soon.

Thank you Lion Queen! I was hoping you would spot my question here. I hope we will bring some rain with when we come tomorrow. Would love to be there and see the transformation! :D (And hopefully to cool things down a bit! :lol: )

My brother and I will be arriving in the park on Dec. 29 from the US via Windhoek. Unless we are able to get Rand in Namibia, which may be possible, we'll need to get cash in the park. This is my third trip to KTP and in the past I've been able to get cash at the shop in TR. Is that service still available? I'm aware that credit cards are accepted for fuel and bookings such as game drives, but I'm not certain whether cards are accepted in all of the shops. Plus, its much easier to use cash for lots of transactions.

Thanks in advance.

Marc

You will easily get ZAR cash at the airport in Windoek.
