Self Drive Safaris

South African National Parks

For those explorers in need of fresh air, experience the beauty and diversity of South African National Parks, travel and explore our national parks, wildlife and nature reserves right on your doorstep!

Please see detailed information on the location of game parks, visitor times and gate entrance fees.

Be sure to carry your identity book, driver’s license or passport to gain entry to the park.


The Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries (DEFF), has provided clarity to the rules around game drives in a statement made on Monday 1 June 2020. Game viewing is a key part of the collapsed tourism sector and the rules apply to private reserves, game farms as well as state-run parks.

Self-driving will be allowed provided that the passengers are from the same household. Masks are only required to be worn when using the refreshment stops and engaging with other members of the public. Guests are welcome to purchase food items from the restaurants on a take-away basis and make use of picnic sites. Picnic sites are spaced out evenly with social distancing in place and will be sanitized throughout the day.
