Latest Update 13/04/2009 - Changes are in BLUE

 

NO-GO AREAS:

(MPU/LIM) Kruger National Park - No physical geocaches are permitted, but earthcaches and virtual waypoints of multi/mystery caches within the park are OK, provided that they do not encourage breaking any of the park's rules which can be found here, and provided that they contain educational content. Earthcaches have blanket permission, and it's not necessary to ask for specific permission for each earthcache. Feel free to refer to this post when submitting your earthcache listing.

 

(GAU) Rietvlei Nature Reserve, SE of Pretoria - The park management insisted on removal of caches in this reserve a few years ago after an incident.

All existing geocaches on their properties are in the process of being inspected, and will either "legalised", or removed if they deem it undesirable.

This applies to the following properties under their control -

Rietvlei Nature Reserve and fishing area at the dam, Groenkloof Nature Reserve, Fearie Glen Nature Reserve, Wonderboom Nature Reserve, Bishop bird park (Rooihuiskraal area), Austin Roberts bird sanctuary, Boardwalk bird sanctuary, Chaimberlain bird sanctuary, Strubendam bird sanctuary, Techno Park bird sanctuary, Moreletakloof Nature Reserve, Pierre van Rhyneveld Nature area, Luton Valley bird sanctuary, Fonteinedal leisure resort, Moretele leisure resort (Mamelodi), Derdepoort leisure resort, Joos Becker Caravan Park, Rooiwal leisure resort (near the Rooiwal powerstation), Klipkruisfotein leisure resort (Soshanguve), Ga-Mothakga leisure resort (Atteridgeville, next to Church street extension - west), Kwaggaspruit leisure resort (Corner of Quagga west and Trans Oranje in Pretoria West), Zwartkops leisure resort, Rooihuiskraal leisure resort (Rooihuiskraal historical grounds), Findel park (Centurion area), The reeds (Centurion area), Hennops river, Quaggasrand (Laudium area), Panorama park (Centurion area), Raslouw park (Centurion area), Sunderland ridge (Centurion area), Colbyn valley (in the East), Lucas rand, Frank Struben Bird sanctuary, Magaliesberg range, Chaimberlains, Klapperkop, Zandfontein

At this stage, Rietvlei Nature Reserve remains highly sensitive, but with proper discussions directly with the management, a new cache in that area can be possible. This will be one area that they will hide their own caches to show the rest of the geocaching community some history and awareness of nature.

After consultation with various local cachers and my overseas collegues, I've decided to lift the above self-imposed interim restrictions which have been in effect for the past 7 months. I do however ask that geocaches be created in an ecologically responsible manner, and that all local rules be meticulously observed.

(KZN) With immediate effect (from 26 August 2015) - there is to be NO CACHING in the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve. Detail

 

All caches will be disabled by the Reviewer - and any found logs will be deleted.

 

We have had a meeting with the Reserve Management - and he is not happy with the geocaching community over the years. In particular he has cited:

  • Climbing fences and not using designated entrances
  • Not paying relevant entrance fees
  • Littering
  • Moving off trail
  • Parking in non-designated areas
  • Continued disregard for rules
  • Contravention of the National legislation regarding Protected Areas.
