The Karoo National Park, founded in 1979, is a wildlife reserve in the isolated Karoo area of the Western Cape, South Africa near Beaufort West. The area is mostly semi-desert and is well known for its isolation. The national park, which covers an area of 767.9 square kilometres (296.5 sq mi),[1] is home of many desert mammals, along with the Verreaux's Eagle and various species of tortoise, for the park lays claim to having the most of these species of any national park.[2] Endangered species such as the Black Rhinoceros and Riverine Rabbit have been successfully resettled here.
