Mokala National Park
Mokala National Park is located off of the N12 national road. Visitors travelling from Cape Town will travel up the N12 for 919 kilometres (569.78 miles) towards Kimberley. 37 kilometres (22.9 miles) outside of Kimberley, just before Ritchie, one will see a signboard to Lilydale. Turn onto the gravel road and travel for 16 kilometres (9.92 miles) before arriving at the main gate.
The national park’s internal sand/gravel road network can be in a poor condition and visitors are advised to contact the reserve for an update on the conditions prior to arrival. During the rainy season between December and February some of the roads are closed as a precautionary safety measure. The one road the closures regularly affect is the main road leading between Mosu Lodge and Lilydale Rest Camp. It is recommended that visitors access the nature reserve in a high clearance vehicle that is more powerful than one’s average Sedan vehicle.
