Tankwa Karoo National Park is a Scientific National Park in South Africa. The park lies about 70 km due west of Sutherland near the border of the Northern Cape and Western Cape, in one of the most arid regions of South Africa, with areas receiving less than 100 mm of average annual precipitation, moisture-bearing clouds from the Atlantic Ocean being largely stopped by the Cederberg. Other low areas receive little more, as the Roodewerf station (coordinates: S32°14’27.9” E20°05’44.5”) with 180 mm of mean annual rainfall. In the hottest areas of the park, the mean maximum temperature in January is 38.9 °C, and in July the mean minimum temperature ranges from about 5 to 7 °C. Before this Park's proclamation, the only protected area of Succulent Karoo was the 2 square kilometre patch of the Ga

  • Tankwa Karoo National Park is a Scientific National Park in South Africa. The park lies about 70 km due west of Sutherland near the border of the Northern Cape and Western Cape, in one of the most arid regions of South Africa, with areas receiving less than 100 mm of average annual precipitation, moisture-bearing clouds from the Atlantic Ocean being largely stopped by the Cederberg. Other low areas receive little more, as the Roodewerf station (coordinates: S32°14’27.9” E20°05’44.5”) with 180 mm of mean annual rainfall. In the hottest areas of the park, the mean maximum temperature in January is 38.9 °C, and in July the mean minimum temperature ranges from about 5 to 7 °C. Before this Park's proclamation, the only protected area of Succulent Karoo was the 2 square kilometre patch of the Gamkaberg Nature Reserve. Succulent Karoo has, together with the Cape Floral Kingdom, been declared a Biodiversity Hotspot by Conservation International. Tankwa's area has been increased from an initial 260 to 1436 km2. It is bounded on the east by the Roggeveld Mountains, on the west by the Cederberg, to the north by the Kouebokkeveld Mountains and on the south by the scattered foothills of the Koedoesberge and Klein Roggeveld Mountains, and the Tankwa River. The park's headquarters are located at Roodewerf (GPS coordinates: S 32° 14’ 27.9” E 20° 5’ 44.5”). Distances from the nearest towns to the park's headquarters are: Ceres (180 km), Sutherland (120 km), Calvinia (110 km) and Middelpos (52 km). In 1998 Conrad Strauss sold 280 km2 of sheep farm to the South African National Parks. The park has started with the reintroduction of game that used to occur naturally in the area. Research was done beforehand to ensure that introduced animals would survive on the overgrazed veld. The vegetation in the park falls within the Succulent Karoo biome and has been described as very sparse shrubland and dwarf shrubland. Several unique succulent genera occur here, such as Tanquana, Braunsia and Didymaotus. The park is home to a large variety of birds (188 species - 2015 figure), such as the black-headed canary, Ludwig's bustard, and the black-eared sparrow-lark. Peak birding season is August to October. (en)
  • Nationaal Park Tankwa Karoo is een wetenschappelijk nationaal park van Zuid-Afrika. Het park ligt zo'n 70 kilometer ten westen van Sutherland, in de buurt van de grens tussen de Noord-Kaap en de West-Kaap. Het park is tot Nationaal park verklaard in 1986.Het park is gelegen in een van de droogste regio's van Zuid-Afrika, met zo'n 50 tot 70 mm regen per jaar. (nl)
  • 塔卡瓦·卡鲁国家公园(英語:Tankwa Karoo National Park)是南非的科学国家公园。公园距南非最干旱地带,西开普与北开普交界萨瑟兰西部约70km,年均降水在100mm下,来自大西洋的降雨云抵达锡德伯格处大多停留。其他较低地区接收的雨水更少,路德维尔福站(coordinates: S32°14’27.9” E20°05’44.5” )年降雨为180mm。公园最热的地区,1月平均最高气温为38.9℃,7月的平均最低气温为5℃至7℃。在公园宣告成立前,多肉干旱台地高原的保护区为仅占2km²的加姆卡伯格自然保护区。多肉干旱台地以及开普植物王国已被指定为生物多样化热点地区和国际保护组织。 塔卡瓦地区从最初的260km²增长到1436km²。东部以罗格菲尔德山脉(Roggeveld Mountains)为边界,西部的边界为锡德伯格,北部边界地处库布克菲尔德山脉(Kouebokkeveld Mountains),南部边界为古多伊斯伯格(Koedoesberge)和克莱恩·罗格菲尔德山脉的山麓和塔卡瓦河。公园管理处坐落在雷诺斯特河上的保尔肖科,将一处旧农舍转用为办公室和游客接待区。 1998年,康拉德·斯特劳斯把280km²的牧羊场售给南非国家公园。公园开始再度引入过去常在此出现的猎物。事前,为确保引入的动物能再过度放牧的草原生存曾做过调查。公园的植被多为多肉干旱台地高原生物圈内的植物,曾被描述为稀疏的灌木丛和矮灌木丛。公园还是大量鸟类的家园,如黑头金丝雀、黑头鸨、黑耳雀百灵。观鸟旺季为8月至10月。 (zh)
