Karoo National Park
We offer various safari and tour packages to the Karoo National Park. We can also create a custom tour package that will suit your needs best.
Towards late afternoon, the great, unyielding canopy slowly softens its fierceness, from pastel shades of pink and blue, the colours deepen setting the endless Karoo canvas ablaze with glorious hues of orange and red.
The Great Karoo is a vast and unforgiving landscape of which the Karoo National Park is but a small portion, The Great Karoo is the largest ecosystem in South Africa and home to a fascinating diversity of life, all having adapted to survive in extremely harsh conditions.
The Karoo National Park is dominated by the lofty Nuweveld Mountains and rolling plains, where many species that originally occurred here now occupy their former ranges. These include Black Rhino, Buffalo as well as Cape Mountain Zebra. Over 20 breeding pairs of Black Eagle find sanctuary within the park. This Park is also home to a wide diversity of succulent plants and small reptiles.
According to historical records, the last wild Lion was shot at the nearby settlement of Leeu-Gamka in 1842. Historical evidence of Lion occurrence in the area includes farm and river names based on the word “leeu” or lion and the fact that the two main rivers draining the Central Karoo mountains – the Leeurivier and Gamka River – derive from the Afrikaans and San words for Lion respectively.
Two male lions, two lionesses and four cubs were released from the Boma in Karoo National Park, becoming the first wild, free-ranging lions in the Great Karoo.The lions were translocated from Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape, where the establishment of a lion population had been very successful following their introduction in 2003.
The Klipspringer Mountain Pass (named after a small buck, The Klipspringer ) lies within this unique Park not only provides visitors with spectacular views, but this Pass is also an example of civil engineering toil and precision.
The Karoo National Park is a convenient stopover on route from Johannesburg as well as Cape Town into the central parts of South Africa.
