Tankwa-Karoo National Park

Our last stop on our arid parks trip was at the Tankwa-Karoo NP, where we were again with our group from Skikpad, this time staying in the beautiful Elandsberg cottages in the north of the park.  We could not wait to travel south to see the daisy fields that had so impressed us in 2013, but were amazed to see not one single flower in the area.  It was that dry!!  A trip up the Ganagga pass, however, restored our faith in the area and we were rewarded with many beautiful scenes and interesting plants, some of which are shown below.  Bird life was also good along the pass, with many sunbirds and even a rare Fairy Flycatcher.
