At West Coast national park the old restored homestead houses the restaurant and shop - the headquarters are in Langebaan in what was originally the site of a hotel.

As Toko said Roodewerf in the Tankwa Karoo is the headquarters: was there last weekend with a group of 19 Juniors and their parents!

Toko is correct on this one :clap: and unless any one objects he can continue. In my 2nd post on this question I mentioned about the offices in Langebaan and support Bookman on the answer. :thumbs_up:

Roodewerf, a 100-year-old farmhouse was sold to SANParks in 1998 and is now park headquarters of Tankwa Karoo NP

Ok - let's give it a go again:

In which NP is mining :shock: co-existing with conservation?

The mining area is about 7000 hectares in the park and diamond mining commenced at Sendlingsdrift in 1970 before the NP was proclaimed.
