Route info: This route is point to point and not circular. It is very scenic with many changes in terrain and vegetation. It starts out on the outskirts of Ladismith and passes a few small farms with live stock before it moves on into the game reserve areas where wildlife is ample. Not far outside of Ladismith life slow down significantly and you might encounter a donkey cart, a herd of goats crossing the road, a very old tractor preparing a small patch of land…life is slower and less complicated out here. When you get to the top of the plateau the landscape opens up to the vast beauty of the Klein Karoo and here is where you might encounter: Kudu, Gemsbuck, Eland and many other smaller game.
