Karoo National Park
People with Disabilities
An in-depth accessibility profile for Karoo National Park has been compiled.
The rest camp has three units accessible to wheelchair users (2 chalets with 2 beds and a sleeper couch and and one unit with 6 single beds in 2 bedrooms).
The reception area and shop can be accessed easily enough (there is a small step at the entrance to the building.) Descending into the restaurant is currently achieved via an exceptionally steep ramp, and even the strongest of wheelchair users will need assistance.
The highlight of the park from an accessibility perspective is a fossil trail accessible to wheelchairs and most of the circuit is on a smooth, firm surface with an appropriate gradient. A bird hide and a couple of other walks are not accessible, but wheelchair users can follow the road down to the picturesque campsite and make their way around it absorbing the fauna and flora. Birds, insects and tortoises are particularly prominent. Otherwise visitors can go on a scenic mountain drive or a game viewing plains drive.
