Guest Reviews for Tankwa Karoo National Park (close to Sutherland)

Come and experience the wildlife and wilderness that makes Africa such a special place - the memories made on safari will stay with you forever!

Tankwa is an amazing place - unlike anywhere else. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay a happy one, Including helping to change a flat tire. Don't expect luxury, although it's certainly very comfortable and the pool was a blessing. Really enjoyed our stay.


Perfect accommodation. Clean and well presented. Have recommended it to my friends.

A wonderful place to visit. Open spaces, friendly staff. Special area.


What a unbelievable experience. We live in SA and don't known what beautiful places we have got. Accommodation was very nice and the people so friendly and helpful. We loved the place.

We had a great 2 days in the Tankwa Park, when we arrived at the reception it was to hear that we were the only people booked in the Langkloof Campsite. On asking the receptionist if there were people in the Perdekloof campsite she informed us that there were and when we asked if we could relocate to the Perdekloof campsite within a couple of minutes she had arranged this and we were on our way.The stay was great we did most of the drives and the 4 x 4 routes to the lookout points which were magnificent.The only grip we have, is that we did the Watervlei 4 x 4 route and this was fine as far as the Escarpment look out point and then after that the route just disappears. This route has not been maintained, and therefore we had to turn around and could not complete the course which made our traveling day at least 3 hours short.It would be great if this route could be maintained.
