Why Visit?

The thinly populated Northern Cape region of South Africa is home to Mokala, a national park established in 2007 to protect and provide safe refuge for black and white rhinos. Day and night game drives, rock art excursions, picnicking, adventure activities and a restaurant make this a well-rounded destination that is within close proximity to the old frontier town of Kimberly.
