The dry, semi-arid Karoo National Park is situated in the central Great Karoo, just north of Beaufort West. The IBA incorporates the Karoo National Park, the town of Beaufort West and its sewage works. A total of 170 species have been recorded in the Park; 77 are resident and 29 are breeding visitors. Despite the low diversity, the Park is extremely important for Namib-Karoo biome-restricted assemblage species, as well as supporting a host of other arid-zone specials.
