    Default KTP Nossob - Fuel Availability

    We will be going to KTP through Mabuasehube this coming April. We intend re-fuelling at Nossob. Can anyone advise how reliable the fuel stocks at Nossob are - both Petrol and Diesel. Is there any chance of them running out? Has this happened before? Any info will be appreciated...

    They ran out of diesel at Nossob when we visited in April 2006. It was only for a day or two though. On previous visits we had no problems.

    Have visited nossob about 6 times over the last 5 years and never had a problem. Sometimes they do limit the amount of fuel you can buy to R300, but this has not happened to us in the last 3 visits. You can also ask on the sanparks.org forum.

    I've never had a problem, although I do know that when we had the petrol strikes a couple of years ago they struggled (but so did a lot of less remote places).

    Regarding the fuel limit, this has been done away with. It was done in the past because Nossob has no phone lines and they wanted to limit the potential fraud on garage cards. They now have a "line" for the webcam, so can process your purchase in full.
