Known for it’s clear crisp sky, Tankwa Karoo National Park is a favourite for seeing the beauty and majesty of the universe’s bright lights. A park of dry desert and moonscapes with a mix of rich vegetation in other parts. This National Park is more than 4 times it’s size when it opened in 1986 and has continued to reintroduce wildlife into the National Park.
With Campsites, Cottages and guesthouses you get to stay in a place far removed from everyday life and feel nature surround you wherever you go. The horizons are vast, the cliffs, sheer and the sky, well amazing is the only word for Tankwa Karoo National Park. Have a break here and enjoy nature as it is.
