Geography and history
Slightly inland are a series of mountain ranges that form the border with the Klein Karoo. These ranges include the Langeberg, Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains and add to the varied landscape of the prestine Garden Route.It’s all about an abundance of blue skies, white sand beaches, rolling oceans, dramatic mountain scenery, indigenous fynbos, ostrich antics and local hospitality.
The Klein Karoo is a semi-arid region with untold beauty. Known for its ostrich farms, spectacular mountain passes, clear streams and some amazing flora to be found in this georgeous area. Quite a few winemakers make a living from vines grown close to the rivers, and Oudtshoorn is a favorite destination with its Cango Caves, ostrich farms, musuems and the yearly KKNK (Karoo National Arts Festival), offering showcases of South African art forms from serious drama to farce and includes music, fine arts, festive food, poetry, theatre and dancing.
