The Klein Karoo – So Much to See and Do!
This is big sky country and is the most diverse region in the Western Cape. It is famous for its friendly people, the mystique of the magnificent landscapes, scenic routes through picturesque towns, world famous sights, lush vineyards and orchards, and the dry open veld that stretches into the distance.
Some of the things we recommend in the area are
- Oudtshoorn - the capital of the area
- Cango Caves - 20 million years old and one of the world’s great natural wonders.
- Enjoy three spectacular passes in the Swartberg mountains. (1) Swartberg Pass, (2) Meiringspoort, and (3) Seweweekspoort Pass.
- Enjoy our Working Ostrich Farm Tour
- Adrenaline sports are plenty in this area
- Learn about our Local Culture
