Klein Karoo Game Reserves

About the area

Along the world-famous Route62, the Klein Karoo is a remote and peaceful valley home to several charismatic animal and plant species. Partly Fynbos, partly Succulent Karoo – the biome which hosts the world's richest diversity of succulent plant species – the Klein Karoo is a welcome escape from the bustling city of Cape Town, a mere 3 hours away. There are several pioneering game reserves at the surrounding mountains' foothills, characterised by vistas of rhino, zebra and giraffe frolicking in the hilly fields. Keep your eyes peeled for the elusive and majestic Cape leopard!
