Experience the Klein Karoo, which is a long valley bordered by the Swartberg and the Langeberg Mountains in the Western Cape, it forms the southern sibling of the larger Karoo – the Great or Groot Karoo occupies the northern part thereof.

From Prince Albert over the Swartberg Mountains and all the off-the- beaten- track roads, along Route 62 to Montagu

This is the land of succulents, fruit orchards in blossom and vineyards.

Landscapes of towering cliffs, clear streams and a unique biome dominated by the aloe and dwarf baobab tree (Botterboom) with its yellow peeling bark and midsummer red tubular flowers. Majestic mountains lend a blue haze to the distant horizon and spring in this semi-arid climate with winter rainfall.
