    Default Biking the national parks

    I'm struggling to get any info from SANParks on this, but does anyone know where I can source a list of parks and reserves where motorbikes are allowed?

    I understand you don't really want to do this in places like Kruger, where you'd be seen as a tasty meals on wheels option, but it would be nice to know we wouldn't be turned away on a bike elsewhere after a couple hours ride to get to the gate.

    From Sanparks Site:

    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

    Tsitsikamma National Park Motorcycle friendly
    West Coast National Park Motorcycle friendly

    Best would be probably to contact the place/park you are planning to travel to and get first hand info.

    Vehicle Restrictions
    Powerboats and quad bikes are not allowed.
    Motorcycles are allowed in the park.
    The driving speed limit in the park is 40km/hr and in certain sections, 20km/hr. Visitors should adhere to these restrictions in order to safeguard the wildlife (big and small) in the park.
