Mokala NP is located 84km/7mi outside the town of Kimberley.
You will most likely enter South Africa by flying into O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg or Cape Town International Airport (CPT) in Cape Town. You can hire a car and drive from there or take a connecting flight to Kimberley Airport (KIM).
The park is a convenient stopover en route between Johannesburg and Cape Town. The distance from Johannesburg is approximately 500km/310mi and from Cape Town 1,000km/620mi. Visitors to Mokala generally drive there on their own, and the park is accessible with an ordinary 2WD car. However, a 4WD might be best if you plan on visiting during the rainy season.
