There is a road that you can ride through the Addo Elephant National Park. Its a short cut from the Town of Addo to the N10.
The sign says " Use of motorcycles are at your own risk"

Access to Bird Island off Lamberts Bay is by foot only.
Costs R20 per person for a day pass.
Well worth going if you enjoy birds, especially Cape Gannets.

West Coast National Park.

Biker friendly, no access problems other than the talkative guard at the gate.
I did not notice the fee.

I don't think I would want to ride in Marloth Park on a bike, when I was there years back I heard all sorts of stories of lions escaping and taking out locals plus the big animals coming over from Kruger.

Could get exciting, almost as adventurous as riding through Diepsloot.

Ko Ko Tjara is 'n nice park met baie wild oorkant Karoo park by Beaufort. Ons het lekker wild gaan kyk op die XR;s.  Sommige paaie was baie lank laas gebruik.
