Hats off to SanParks for this lovely Karoo Park. You may not get to see the Rhino or any of the lions but you will certainly be impressed by the beautiful scenery, wide open spaces and abundant smaller game. There is an excellent fossil display...More

If you want to get some peace and quiet look no further than afsaal hut. This hut has all the basics you need in a self catering unit.

At R96 per person (SA citizens) this park has a lot to offer if you have a 4x4. For the average car there is only one loop you can take up a very spectacular steep road, with views over the plains and across to cliffs....More
