Mokala National Park, Kimberley

#2 of 12 in Nature in Northern Cape
Take in the rich biodiversity of Mokala National Park, a reserve that protects a number of endangered species. Established in 2007, the park has a total area of 196.11 sq km (75.72 sq mi). Its manageable size and lack of large predators make it a relatively laid-back safari experience. Soak up the atmosphere of the bush and plains, spotting herds of game animals as you go. Keep an eye out for critically endangered black rhinos and white-backed vultures, two of the park's most prized animals to sight. Take a look at our Kimberley trip planner to schedule your visit to Mokala National Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Great park to visit just outside of Kimberley. Lots of buck, Giraffe and Wildebeest. No predators in this park, so you can drive around without to much stress.  more »

  • What a lovely National park. Hugely relaxing, very interesting game. Friendly staff. 5stars for the campsite, could have chilled there for days, watching animals come down to drink...it's superbly designed as well with fridge and gas burners. Really lovely place.
  • Had to sleep in my vehicle as we could not set up our tent anywhere without being overpowered by ants. Fridges are absolutely useless, only the freezer section cools down slightly. Geysers overflow onto roof and then glow down right in front of the kitchen area. Shower has hot water until you open cold, could not be balanced at all.
