Bike friendly game parks...
« on: July 16, 2009, 04:52:23 pm »
Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a game park in south africa that allows bikes in?  I know there a few that allow walking tours so someone must let bikes in...

I was also a bit unhappy about the fact that I had to leave my bike at the gate when I went to Klaserie.

But when we spotted a Leopard and a bunch of Elephant half an hour into the park I felt slighlty better. :peepwall:

Unfortunately had the same problem. It seems that all SANParks do not let bikes in.

Bots, Zam and Nam are the same!

Although some private parks are not to concerned about your life and let you in!

Bikes don't have a reverse (maybe a giant harley, but who the F* rides a harley in a game park), and that seems to be problematic when you have a stubborn bachelor Rhino/Elephant or Buffalo chilling in the road...

I have had a few run ins with quit a few animals, and luckily escaped a few very near Very dangerous situations!

If anyone knows of any other parks that allow bikes in, please do tell!!!!!!!!  ;)  ;)  ;)  :thumleft:

excellent news, thanks Chicco!

Guess the person I spoke to about it at SANParks "didn't have the time" to check which parks allowed bikes in.
