MUST BE OUT BY THAT TIME AND THOSE WITH ACCOMMODATION
BOOKED MUST BE IN THEIR REST CAMP BY THAT TIME.
IT CAN BE DANGEROUS TO IGNORE THESE DEADLINES,
WHICH ARE STRICTLY ENFORCED.

ARE ENFORCED. NORMALLY IN ORDER TO BENEFIT FROM THE
GAME VIEWING POSSIBILITIES A LOWER SPEED WOULD BE AVERAGED.
DOMESTIC ANIMALS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE PARK AND
VISITORS MAY NOT LEAVE THEIR CARS EXCEPT AT CERTAIN CLEARLY
MARKED AREAS. THE PARK IS NOT A ZOO - THE ANIMALS ARE WILD.
ALTHOUGH MOST WILD ANIMALS ARE NOT AGGRESSIVE, THEIR INSTINCT
IS TO ATTACK IF THREATENED, CORNERED OR FRIGHTENED.
VISITORS WHO FOLLOW THE REGULATIONS AND THEIR COMMON
SENSE WILL BE 100% SAFE.

FUEL AND REFRESHMENTS ARE AVAILABLE AT MOST REST CAMPS.
DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CAR TO RUN LOW ON FUEL AS DISTANCES

NORMAL WHEN STOPPING AND STARTING, ESPECIALLY
WITH AIR-CONDITIONING OPERATING.
