Maps of The Karoo National Park in South Africa

Number 11 on the map below is the location of the Karoo National Park in the Western Cape Province. The map shows South Africa with the locations of all its National Parks.


Discover the fascinating mysteries of the Park’s fossilized history, the days when enormous Dinosaurs and other huge mammals and amphibians were thumping their massive feet on the same ground as you are walking on in the Park.

On the satellite image of South Africa above, the whole area within the yellow line is what we call Karoo. It can be subdivided in two ways. From an ecological point of view the large semi-desert area between the green and yellow lines is called the Nama Karoo region and the small area with a larger rainfall between the green line and the coast is called the Succulent or Green Karoo.

The other and more familiar subdivision is from a geographical point of view, whereby the large northern area between the yellow and green lines is known as the Great Karoo (“Groot Karoo”) and the smaller southern area as the Little Karoo ("Klein Karoo").
