The Conservation Area
Right at the edge of the Tankwa Karoo you can expect lush vegetation ranging from mountain grasses to glorious succulents. The aim of this wonderful conservation area is to rehabilitate the veld and encourage indigenous animals to the area.
The next step is to bring in larger grazing animals.
It is advised that you travel here in a high clearance vehicle rather than an average car due to the terrain.
