Tankwa Karoo National Park is situated on the southern boundary of the Northern Cape with the Roggeveld Escarpment in the East, Cederberg in the West, and Klein Roggeveld Mountains in the South. 

Just a four-hour drive from Cape Town brings you to this truly unique national park. Situated within the Succulent Karoo Biome, the area is renowned for its rare and endemic plant species, rich birdlife, and landscapes that will take your breath away – from the sheer cliffs of the Roggeveld Escarpment to the moonscapes of the Tankwa Desert.

While Tankwa Karoo National Park is still in a developmental and land consolidation phase, expanding from the original 26,000 hectares in 1986 to nearly 143,600 ha by late 2010, it is the ideal destination for those seeking the brightest stars in Africa, a once in a lifetime glimpse of a rare endemic bird or perhaps nothing more than a silence that reaches deep into the soul...

Tankwa National Park is a well-known stop for birding enthusiasts in search of Karoo endemics. The Park’s list currently includes 174 bird species of the 178 species known to occur in the Region.

During 25 to 29 May 2009 saw the commencement of the largest single relocation of antelope into Tankwa National Park since its reintroduction programme began in June 2004. During this week, 81 Gemsbok and 69 Red Hartebeest from Mokala National Park found a new home in Tankwa.

 

ACCOMMODATION

There are various cottages and guesthouses in and around the park - both self catering and B&B.
