Any idea at what time one can enter the Park in October.
We will be overnighting outside the park and need to book in at Twee Rivieren reception.

Hi Mistral,

Gate times for October in the morning is 6H00.

What we've done in the past is go to the gate, fill in the permit and then we do the "booking in" stuff when we reach camp. Wilderness camps can book in at TR, Mata Mata or Nossob.

:hmz: AFAIR, reception opens at 7h30, and I am not sure about the outer gate.

Is it also 6h00 or 7h30.

This has always been an issue.

BB I phoned and reception opens 7Hoo.

The gate at reception (the outer gate) opens at 6H00. And she confirmed we are more than welcome to enter at 6H00 and then book in at a later stage. :thumbs_up:

Oh good. One can have a little ride down to Rooiputs and back and then check in. :thumbs_up:

We've in the past done a near full day of driving only booking in just before gate closing! ( had some great sightings so we spend some time there!)

Or if your first camp is Mata Mata, for example, drive up to Mata Mata and book in there.

I opened the link as I am also interested in entrance gate hours and see it opens at 7:00am but what time does it close?
Camp gate hours are 6:30 to 18:30 but can't see entrance gate closing time.
Maybe it is same as camp gate as in Kruger?

I think it might be so, Kite but am not sure. Let's hope that one of our regular KTP visiting 'mites will be able to help.

I have received confirmation that the entrance gate at Twee Rivieren closes at the same time as the camp gate, Kite.
