Our newest National Park

"Where Endangered Species Roam..."
Mokala is South African National Parks newest park, situated approximately 80km south-southwest of Kimberley, and west of the N12 freeway to Cape Town.
Nestled in the hills, Mokala is in a unique position to offer guests a SANParks experience like no other. The unique landscape and abundance of rare game are complimented by a range of accommodation to suit group visits. Current facilities include two lodges; a restaurant and conferencing facilities. There is also a small rustic camping area as well as a private landing strip at the park.
As the park prospers under the wide Northern Cape skies, a number of activities such as mountain biking, day walks, sunset and night drives, cultural excursions, star gazing activities and bush braais will become available.
The park has a well established road network and future plans include the development of some self catering accommodation, as well as day visitor facilities.

Tour de Kruger

Tour de Kruger a success.
The 209 participants of the Tour de Kruger 2007 have all arrived back tired but exhilarated. This year was the final TDK and a great success from a fundraising point of view, as well as being an incredible experience for all who participated.
The event, a four-and-a-half day mountain bike tour through The Kruger National Park and Mozambique's Limpopo National Park raised about R700 000 for two non-profit organisations, Children in The Wilderness and Peace Parks Foundation.
