The park was originally established to conserve a species – its namesake, the Bontebok. When the species was approaching extinction in the early 1800s (approximately 17 Bontebok left) some land owners set aside portions of their properties to form temporary reserves. In 1931 the first Bontebok National Park was proclaimed on an area near Bredasdorp where the majestic Langeberg Mountains provide a picturesque backdrop for this Park of colorful riches.. The park was later moved to the area it is in now, to suit the habitat requirements of the Bontebok. Today, the smallest national park in the South African National Park stable, Bontebok boasts of its achievements in biodiversity conservation, from the endangered fynbos veld type, coastal Renosterveld, to the bontebok!
