I hope this thread will still exist in 2018 :pray: then I will wait for your 2018 Kaapsedraai and your visit to WCNP (there is no big or small cats in the park) therefore bikers are maybe allowed. :hmz: I saw some in Cambedoo national park :thumbs_up:

Maybe Isinkwe has a seat for you on the bike :D

These are the SANPARKS that allow Image

Motorcycling

•Agulhas National Park – Motorcycle friendly
•Golden Gate Highlands National Park – Motorcycle friendly
•Karoo National Park – Motorcycles allowed after prior arrangement
•Knysna National Lake Area – Motorcycle friendly
•Namaqua National Park – Motorcycles allowed on all public roads
•Tankwa Karoo National Park – Motorcycles allowed
•Tsitsikamma National Park – Motorcycle friendly
•West Coast National Park – Motorcycle friendly
•Wilderness National Park – Motorcycles allowed on designated routes

The most surprising to me is Karoo National Park

Quite a few more than I think many people realise :D :D
Isn't it just amazing how potatoes give us fries and vodka? :D The rest of the vegetables should get their act together :rtm:

Just make sure before going......
I've been to Namaqua NP a few times and am sure that although they permit motorcycles, it is only to drive through the park.

In other words, you may not overnight in the park with a motorcycle.

They won't even permit you to enter if you are towing a trailer with quad bikes loaded 8)
