The 80 000 hectare Tankwa Karoo National Park protects one of the most starkly beautiful tracts of the Tankwa Karoo. It teems with life and character, from the dramatic landscapes, wide silences, eccentric richness of plant diversity and the rare and prolific birdlife that exploits this landscape and its relative isolation.
