Situated approximately 12km from Beaufort West, close to the N1, even though it is the perfect stop-over for travelers between Cape Town and Johannesburg, it has so much more to offer. This destination faces the beautiful Nuweveld Mountains and is a haven of peace and tranquility, allowing guests to experience the forbidding Karoo environment. The park is now home to approximately 63 species of mammals and over 200 species of birds. The Karoo National Park is also the only national park that includes breakfast for overnight guests staying in self-catering accommodation (excluded for campers)

Botswana Experience
Anja, our agent, was very kind and helpful all the time to organize the perfect trip. She did it quickly and efficiently. The amount of days we spent in every place was perfect to really enjoy the hotels and the different activities they proposed (in general the hotels are very nice but we don’t have the time to really experience the place but here we did). Also the selections of hotels was very very nice. Nice infrastructure, excellent service (very professional) and outstanding places to visit (all the parks were great). We had a wonderful experience with the company in Botswana.

There were issues with your website among other things that had me feeling uncomfortable. Keith has great energy which eased my concerns. I feel the package Keith put together is great and I expect to have a wonderful trip.
