Come and experience the place of big skies and distant horizons with Silent Steps.
Explore the expanse of the Tankwa through this unique opportunity, on foot, whilst soaking up the sense of desolation, peace and serenity only found in the Tankwa.
The Tankwa Karoo National Park lies about 70 km due west of Sutherland, near the border of the Northern- and Western Cape, in one of the most arid regions in South Africa.
The Tankwa Treasure Hike is often mistaken for the Tankwa Camino. This is not the same hike- not in distance, scenery, area or the number of days it takes to complete the hike.
The 67km Tankwa Treasure Hike is a hike through the Tankwa National Park, starting at the very popular Tankwa Tented Camp (once home to the annual AfrikaBurn event) and ending on top of the Gannaga Pass.
This four-night, five-day slack-pack hiking experience offers you the very unique opportunity to walk through and overnight in one of South Africa’s most desolate National Parks- known for its Steenbok, Klipspringer, Red Hartebeest, Gemsbok, Kudu, Savannah Baboon and Black backed-jackal.
