Karoo Park

Near Beaufort-Wes, The Great Karoo is a vast and unforgiving landscape of which the Karoo National Park is but a small portion. Being the largest ecosystem in South Africa, the Karoo is home to a fascinating diversity of life, all having adapted to survive in these harsh conditions.

Karoo National Park is dominated by the lofty Nuweveld Mountains and rolling plains, with a wide variety of endemic wildlife – such as black rhino, buffalo & black eagle – and a wide diversity of succulent plants and small reptiles. Activities include hiking, game viewing, scenic drives and more
