- In any list of top unconventional plays for oil and gas, one and only one play stands out in the whole of sub-Saharan Africa: South Africa's Karoo Basin.
- Most of the country's reserves are located in the Karoo Basin, which in itself, encompasses three quarters of South Africa's territory and the whole of Lesotho, although the prospective areas for shale assets are much smaller and concentrated in the southern half of the country, in a semi-arid biodiverse environment.
- Other areas include Anglo Coal's 19,300 square mile area to the east, and Bundu Gas and Oil Exploration's 1,235 square mile area north of Port Elizabeth.
