Invigorating crystal clear air, beautiful scenery, tranquil ambience and an abundance of wildlife offer you a special and personal African wilderness experience at Mountain Zebra National Park. Situated near Cradock in the malaria-free Eastern Cape, this national park was originally proclaimed in 1937 to save the dwindling Cape mountain zebra population. Now, at over 28 000 hectares, the park protects over 700 zebra, as well as wildlife such as endangered black rhino and cheetah. The park's Rest Camp offers comfortable family cottages, a campsite with communal facilities, a restaurant and a shop. The Guesthouse and two Mountain Cottages are located further into the Park. All accommodation is serviced daily. Accommodation is self-catering and a barbecue unit is provided at all units and campsites. There are a variety of activities available to guests. Game drives can be booked in the mornings and evenings. Explore the park in your own vehicle, or on the hiking and 4x4 trails provided. Track cheetah under the supervision of a guide, and enjoy a fascinating visit to local San Rock Art caves.
