SANParks: Camdeboo National Park

The Valley of Desolation is the most well-known draw card for visitors to Camdeboo National Park, but the park has so much more to offer. Don’t let its ominous name fool you, the Valley of Desolation is an awe-inspiring place where the views from atop tall rectangular cliffs could easily make one believe they’re on top of the world.

Situated in Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape, this 19 405-hectare park includes the high slopes of the Sneeuberg mountain range, as well as low-lying plains and the picturesque Nqweba Dam. Keep your eye out for the elusive and adorable bat-eared fox, Cape buffalo and an endless array of birds.
