The Mountain Zebra National Park’s restaurant is situated in the malaria free Eastern Cape 25km to the West of Craddock which is 260kms North of Port Elizabeth.
The restaurant is fully licensed and serves a splendid a la carte menu, including a variety of light refreshments. The craggy heights of the Mountain Zebra National Park's Bankberg embrace rolling plains and deep valleys, and have become an entrancing preserve for the Cape Mountain Zebra. The proclamation of the park in 1937 saved these animals from extinction, and currently their population stands at 300 where they roam 28 412 hectares of land. Other mammals found here include the cheetah, Cape buffalo, black rhino, eland, black wildebeest, red hartebeest and gemsbok, while mountain reedbuck and grey rhebok frequent the higher areas. Caracal occupies the niche of primary predator.
The National Park is yet another exceptional conservation effort. This small park (by African Standards) of 65 sq km's was established in 1937 to protect the 5 remaining mountain zebras of the huge herds that used to populate the area. Out of the 5, 4 were male!!! Cabinet ministers at the time could not see a problem and dismissed the problem as "donkeys in football jerseys". Amazingly conservationists managed to establish a breeding herd and there are now 350. So come visit Mount Zebra for all the wonders on offer and pop into our restaurant to be delighted and refreshed…
