Swartberg
DID YOU KNOW?

The Swartberg Nature Reserve was declared a World Heritage Site in 2004. This arid area is predicted to get hotter and drier with climate change. Most towns in the Karoo rely on groundwater as well as river water stored in dams, while planned fracking activities are a risk to the area's already threatened ground water supply.
