The Mokala Interpretation Centre
The Mokala National Park is not just where endangered species roam but also where history comes alive.
The Interpretation centre was officially opened on 9 September 2013. The reason behind this initiative was to capture the history of the place and showcase how the beautiful landscapes evolved over time. This forms part of the Park's Interpretive Programme in support of tourism and multi-disciplinary conservation education. The primary role of the interpretation Center is to engage and educate the community. The centre gives an insight of how people use to see themselves as part of the ecological web. Visitors get to see the rock engravings and ancient artefacts used by the inhabitants of the land. Illustration was one way by which inhabitants could delineate their beliefs.
By visiting the centre visitors will embark on a transitional journey of how the people developed over the years. The artefact displays play a huge role in educating the public about the rich cultural heritage facet of the area and lifestyle of the people. It's also a great place to learn about the biodiversity of the Mokala National Park with animals on exhibition alongside descriptive information about animal and plant species found in the vicinity of the park. Day and overnight visitors can go on a tour, which showcases the amazing landscape that the Park has to offer.
