Mzungu,

Where are you riding?
As far as I knew one couldn't ride in any of the big parks in South Africa.
(although I knew of one guy who used to ride in Sabi Sands, the locals called
him Meals on Wheels ! ).

The pics were taken in Tanzania but not in National game parks. Forget about South African Parks, Tanzania has the big ones. Even elephants I have seen outside parks. The giraffes were on a road rideable from my house in couple hours on bicycle. Two hard hours from my house I can come across elephant droppings.

Up until about 4 years ago you could ride through Arusha National Park. You are not supposed to but I have riden a bit into some of the parks, sometimes by mistake, sometimes intentionally.

In this you can see elephant on bike trip
