Loved this San Park and would definitely return. Different as it is in the Karoo but much quieter than some which is its charm.

So I'm going to let you in on a little secret: the Guest Houses deep within the park, about 15 km from the main reception/restaurant/cabins are AMAZING. There are 2 farmhouses from the 1830s sitting atop a hill, with a gorgeous view. The homes have...More

Yes you can but I dont think you can do the 4x4 trails - and they are really interesting. The road is tarred or fairly good dirt road most of the way.
