Cradock is situated on the banks of the Great Fish River and is a typical Karoo farming town. Cradock is currently considered as the capital of the Karoo heartland and renowned for its production of some of the best wool and mohair in the country. In Cradock you can visit the Olive Scheiner Museum, home to one of South Africa’s most famous authors, go and explore the veld, visit one of the many coffee shops or a Karoo farm, experience rare San etchings on rocks or you can take a drive to Mountain Zebra National Park. The park has beautiful scenery, tranquil ambience and an abundance of wildlife to offer. Cradock and Mountain Zebra National Park was proclaimed in July 1937 for the purpose of providing a nature reserve for the endangered Cape mountain zebra. Over the years, additional farms have been purchased to increase the size of the park to the current 284km2. Today the number of zebra found here is over 700!
