We camped at the Karoo National Park for the first time, and the facilities were amazing. The staff friendly and helpful. The ablution facilities are clean and always had hot water. There is a communal kitchen with a microwave and fridge/freezer.

We had a lovely two night stay with great game viewing. We saw large herds of Gemsbok, many smaller antelope as well as a wide variety of birds.
