ONLY off road trailers are allowed. NO off road caravans! Malaria area Big five reserve and access to the Northern parts of park is normally allowed though NOT guaranteed. (Northern part is off limits to normal visitors)

If 10 vehicles or 20 people have already registered, you may add yourself to the Waiting List! No deposit is required. If a space becomes available, you will be notified and required to pay the deposit, or if it's within the 6 weeks before, then the full amount.

We will leave from the 24hr KwikSpar in New England Road, PMB, on Friday morning promptly at 6am.

We will travel via the N3/N2

We will travel via the N2/R22 to Manguzi (fuel stop)

We then travel back down the R22 and then the P522 to Tembe.

We will sign in at the Reception, lower our tyre pressures and proceed to the Honorary Officer's Camp (about 45/60 mins)

Days 2, 3, & 4 will depend on what activities the Honorary Officer's have planned for us. You will have plenty of time to go on Self Drive Game Drives in the Park

TWO WAY RADIOS (required, VHF only):

Communication between participating vehicles on any 4×4 excursion is important for many reasons. It benefits the safety of drivers, passengers and vehicles while on a 4×4 trail, where drivers can communicate with one another regarding their location and situation, not to mention the interesting information that is shared with participants. The fun part is the many interesting stories that are shared among participants. We use VHF radios only and operate on ORRA Channels 1 - 6
