As luminous clouds of dust swirl through the ancient landscape, a tortoise patiently wanders in search of succulent morsels; a lizard basks in the sun while gemsbok and red hartebeest share the arid plains with mongoose, orb-web spiders, skinks and leggy toktokkies... Welcome to Tankwa-Karoo National Park. The extremely high biodiversity is noticeable in the nearly 190 bird species and more than 600 plant species with various game species as well. Activities include bird watching, hiking & cycling, 4x4 trails and self-drive game viewing.
