See an abundance of wildlife in a tranquil ambiance with crystal-clear air at Mountain Zebra National Park, a game reserve offering camping and safari activities. Founded in 1937, during a time when Cape mountain zebras teetered on the brink of extinction, the park currently shelters over 700 animals. Spanning 284 sq km (110 sq mi), the reserve also houses caracals, black-backed jackals, bat-eared foxes, ground squirrels, buffalos, black rhinos, and a number of other large herbivores, such as black wildebeests, red hartebeests, gemsboks, and grey rheboks. Recently, cheetahs and lions were released after a predator-proof fence was erected around neighboring farms and campsites in the park.
