Must be the Bontebok National Park, near Swellendam. This park was proclaimed in 1931 to protect the last 30 bontebok left in the wild.

Thanks Pumbaa! It's one park I haven't been to yet. Have you been there and, if so, what is it like?
Next question:
This Park contains the highest concentration of thick, fleshy, water-storing-stem plants in the world. Which is it?

Are you referring to the Baobab? If so then its Mapungubwe?

Nope. It's not a specific species of plant, but rather a group.

No, not Tankwa, nor Addo.
Remember, I want to know also which group of plants we're talking about when you guys eventually get the Park.
