Mokala National Park: Access roads are in a very bad condition!

According to South African National Parks (SANParks), the access roads to Mokala National Park's Mosu Gate and Lilydale Gate are currently in a very bad condition. Both roads are not recommended for normal caravans. Although both access roads are in very bad state, SANParks advises visitors rather to make use of the Lilydale Gate as the access road from the N12 to the Mosu Gate is in an even worse condition following a recent cloud burst. SANParks also recommends to contact Mokala National Park prior to a trip for up to date information with regards to the accessibility of the roads as sedan vehicles might not be suitable for all roads within the park when there has been rain in the area.

Mokala National Park is located in the Plooysburg area south-west of Kimberley in the Northern Cape. The National Park covers 28 414ha and is home to, amongst other species, Buffalo, Tsessebe, Roan Antelope, Sable Antelope, Giraffe, Gemsbok, Eland, Zebra, Red
Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Kudu, Ostrich, Steenbok, Duiker and Springbok.
