Video: The Karoo National Park (South Africa)

Have you ever thought about visiting the Karoo National Park, but you have never been there? Well, the following video has some very good reasons to visit South Africa's largest ecosystem:

The Karoo National Park is located in the Karoo area of the Western Cape, about 12km from Beaufort West. Cape Town is about 500km south along the N1, while Johannesburg is situated about 1 000km north of the Park.
The 400m Fossil Trail starts about 200m from the main camp of the Karoo National Park. Along the trail, which was put together by South African National Parks (SANParks) and experts from the Wits University in Johannesburg, you'll find a good selction of the over 26,000 fossils that have been found in the Karoo Basin, as well as information boards showcasing the geological history of the area.
