Travel Information


Karoo National Park
The park lies only a few kilometres off the N1 freeway, some 500 kilometres north-east of Cape Town and 10 kilometres from the town of Beaufort West. All roads in the park are tarred with the exceptions of a 4x4 trail and the access road to the Mountain View Restcamp. The gate is open daily between 5 am and 10 pm, the park office until 8 pm.

You can hit the Karoo 4X4 Trail in your own fourwheel drive or in a park vehicle with a guide. Nightdrives are available. The two hiking trails are the 800 metre long Bossie Trail and the 11 kilometre long Fonteintjieskloof Trail. The Karoo Fossil Braille Trail is 400 metres long and gives good insight into the geology and palaeontology of the Great Karoo. There is a swimming pool available for the guests and a birdhide at the dam near the main camp.

Restcamp and Accommodation
At the main camp of the Karoo National Park there are beautiful bungalows in the Cape Dutch style with either 6 beds (2 bedrooms) or 3 beds (1 bedroom). All bungalows comprise a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a patio with barbecue. The somewhat remote Mountain View Rest Camp has very basic huts with communal toilets. The Karoo Park also boasts an excellent camping ground with electricity at the main camp. At the main camp there is a restaurant, a small shop, a swimming pool Pool and a very nice visitors' information centre.
