The Kokerboom Biological Research Station is an 850-ha farm situated in the pristine koppies of Namaqualand, roughly 5km outside of Springbok in the Northern Cape. The area is well-known for its huge floristic diversity with several species being endemic to the area.

The focus of The Kokerboom Biological Research Station will be to provide secure and affordable accommodation and fieldwork opportunities to students from local and international universities, and to foster collaborations research teams.

The Kokerboom Biological Research Station  is the brainchild of a team of herpetologists, and although future projects on the farm will mainly be reptile-related, we are excited to have students and research teams complete projects on a range of topics. The area has an exciting diversity of mammals, birds, plants, invertebrates, and geology – further research and sampling will be necessary.
