This area is part of the Park's game viewing area which is home to buffalo, antelope such as gemsbok, eland, red hartebeest and springbok, smaller mammals such as the black-backed jackal and many bird species.

There is a communal kitchen equipped with stove plates, cooking and eating utensils and microwave. Tents are booked as individual units but there is also a communal braai area for group use. Communal showers and toilets are provided.

Nqweba Camp Sites

Fifteen caravan or tent sites are situated beneath thorn trees on a gravel substrate. Each site has a braai unit and power point. A communal kitchen provides deep freeze, stove top and microwave facilities while the communal ablutions have showers, toilets and a universally accessible unit.

Valley of Desolation

No visit to this National Park is complete without a trip to the Valley of Desolation. It is a geological phenomenon and forms part of South Africa’s most spectacular sights. Columns of Dolerite rise 120 metres up from the valley floor, providing sensational views over the Camdeboo plains.

Game Viewing and Birding

Presently, approximately 19km of gravel roadways provide visitors with the opportunity to view the entire range of indigenous species in their preferred habitats. For birding enthusiasts, nearly 250 bird species have been recorded in the Park.

Trails and Walks

The Crag Lizard Trail (45 minutes) starts at the Valley parking area and extends for about 1.5km via the Valley viewpoints. It is marked with the Crag Lizard logo.

The Eerstefontein Day Walk starts and ends at the Spandaukop gate. There are three route options of 5km, 11km and 14km with good rest spots at Eerstefontein and Agtersfontein.

The Gideon Scheepers Trail is an hour long walk, starting at the Gideon Scheepers Monument, which commemorates the historic figure, and ending at Barbergat on the R63 to Murraysburg.

There is no charge for hiking trails in the Park, apart from conservation fees.

4x4 Trails

Koedoeskloof 4x4 trail (grade 3 to 4) : This trail provides a drive to the top of the mountain, providing unique and spectacular views of the landscape. The trail can be completed with a return journey following the same track in about three hours but the Karoo tranquility and scenic vistas beg for a full day outing.

Visitors can only attempt the trail in a 4x4 vehicle (no 2x4's with diff lock).

Driekoppe 4x4 Trail : This is a scenic grade 2 trail. Wildlife that may be seen in this section of the Park includes Cape mountain zebra, kudu, mountain reedbuck, klipspringer and baboons. You can follow the track past the water supply pump, to the top of Hanglip with its panoramic view of the Camdeboo plains or follow the stream bed down Wolfkloof to the waterfall. You can also walk a circular route by following the left hand turn off. Both 2x4's and 4x4's can make use of the trail.
