Come and experience the place of big skies and distant horizons with Silent Steps. Explore the large expanse of the Tankwa, whilst having the unique opportunity to explore the area on foot and soak up the sense of isolation, peace and serenity only found in the Tankwa. Tankwa Karoo National Park lies about 70 km due west of Sutherland near the border of the Northern Cape and Western Cape, in one of the most arid regions of South Africa.
The Tankwa Treasure Hike is often mistaken for the Tankwa Camino. This is not the event, not in distance, scenery, area nor in the number of days it takes one to complete the Camino. The 80 km Tankwa Treasure hike is a hike through the Tankwa National Park, starting at the very popular Tankwa Tented Camp (once home for the annual AfrikaBurn event) and ending on top of the Gannaga Pass.
This five night six-day slack packing experience offers you the very unique opportunity to walk through and sleep in one of South Africa’s most desolated parks known for its Steenbok, Klipspringer Red Hartbees, Gemsbok, Kudu and Savannah Baboon and Black backed Jackal.
