Experience spectacular landscapes! The Little Karoo plateau is incredibly varied, with its huge cliffs, desert landscapes, crystal clear rivers and fertile wine-growing regions. Step back time to discover towns that have hardly changed in decades. Visit Oudtshoom, home to the world’s largest ostrich population, or head to Montagu, known as the Gateway of Little Karoo, which is a charming settlers’ town with well conserved Cape Dutch and Victorian buildings and home to many artists and artisans. Go hiking on beautiful trails. Swellendam, South’s Africa third oldest town, is an ideal location to enjoy the delicious local fruits, including youngberries, a delicious blackberry variant.
