Bontebok National Park was established in 1931 to protect the remaining 17 Bontebok Antelopes from extinction. It is the smallest National Park in South Africa but very successful.
Bontebok is a year-round destination. Weather is more predictable with little rainfall from October until March. The chance of increasing precipitation starts in May and lasts until September. Nights can be very cold in winter. In summer canoeing or a refreshing bath in the Breede River is another highlight.
