Fodor's Expert Review Bontebok National Park

Swellendam Park (National/State/Provincial)

Covering just 6,880 acres of coastal fynbos, Bontebok National Park is one of the smallest of South Africa's national parks. Don't expect to see big game here—the park contains no elephants, lions, or rhinos. What you will see are bontebok, graceful white-face antelope nearly exterminated by hunters in the early 20th century, as well as red hartebeest, Cape grysbok, steenbok, duiker, and the endangered Cape mountain zebra. There is simple, self-catering accommodation in the reserve, as well as camping facilities.
