Tankwa Karoo National Park

Tankwa Karoo, up on South Africa's Northern and Western Cape border, might not be the easiest place to get to, but it's well worth the drive.  No matter which direction you're coming from the last stretch of road will be dusty, muddy, bumpy and occasionally more of a suggestion than an actual structure.   

The park is a beautiful collection of desert, grassland and mountain, rich in bird life and succulent vegetation.  If you're a FOMO candidate this isn't the place for you.  No cell signal, no TV's, just big sky that shines bright at night and absolute peace and quiet.

Not a bad place for a fish kebab and ostrich steak
