Tankwa Karoo National Park Travel Guide

Keen to hear the stars sing and feel the earth spin? If you need to get your mojo back with a quiet escape in wide-open spaces then pack your vehicle and head to the Tankwa Karoo National Park for a weekend. Just a four-hour drive from Cape Town brings you to this unique National Park situated within the Succulent Karoo Biome.

Here you can spot rare and fascinating plants, numerous endemic birds and creatures big and small from the magnificent Oryx to energetic suricate families. The sweeping landscapes are inspiring and varied, from the sharp crags of Roggeveld Escarpment to the gentle moonscapes of the Tankwa Desert. And at night the jostling crystalline Karoo stars will sing a new song to you.

Tankwa Karoo National Park is situated between the Northern Cape and Western Cape with the Roggeveld Escarpment in the East, Cederberg in the West, and Klein Roggeveld Mountains in the South. The park is still in a developmental phase and is the perfect place for stargazers, twitchers hoping for a chance sighting of a rare endemic bird and anyone searching for soul-stirring silence.
