Yet, despite its harshness, it is a very fragile ecosystem, prone to over-utilisation but permeated with an aura of peace, solitude and tranquillity. The park protects one of the highest concentrations of endemic succulents on earth. Despite the remote setting, tasty and innovative meals are magically produced by our Landscape guide. Teas and lunches are taken al fresco wherever the notion takes us, all the while maintaining a relaxed pace on our journey of discovery.
