The 3rd Largest Park in South Africa

The flora within the AENP is quite varied, and like all plant life, is a central factor to the ecological system in place. Several species of rare and endemic plants, particularly succulent shrubs and geophytes are native to the South African region within the AENP. Many species are under environmental pressure, however, and are facing possible extinction.[3]

More than 600 elephants, 400 Cape buffaloes, over 48 endangered black rhinos (Diceros bicornis michaeli) as well as a variety of antelope species. Lion and spotted hyena have also recently been re-introduced to the area. The largest remaining population of the flightless dung beetle (Circellium bacchus) is located within the park.

Top things to see:

  1. Lion (found mostly in the southern section of the park)
  2. Herds of elephant at Hapoor dam
  3. The Interpretive Centre at Main Camp
  4. The picturesque Zuurberg Mountain
  5. The rolling sand dunes of the Woody Cape section
