The 28 100 ha Mokala National Park lies at the interface of two biomes, namely the Savanna Biome and the Nama-Karoo Biome. It is a safe haven for a number of rare and endangered species including Sable, Tsessebe and Roan antelopes. Disease-free buffalo are also bred at this malaria-free reserve.
Given the diversity of habitats found at Mokala National Park, the reserve offers excellent birding opportunities with large raptors and white-backed vultures often being sighted. In addition, there is a rich archaeological and cultural history on the reserve with a number of rock art sites having been recorded. These may be viewed during guided game drives.
