    Re: Tanka Karoo NP accommodation options.

    I don't think they would consider any time "high season". It's not a particularly busy park but I think most visitors would avoid mid summer and mid winter when the temperatures would be extreme.

    Re: Tanka Karoo NP accommodation options.

    If you want to camp, I suggest Langkloof over Perdekloof. Book both sites at Langkloof for total privacy. If you want to wild camp, go to Skaapwagterspos.
