Little Karoo

The Little Karoo is a fertile valley bounded by three mountain ranges, the Swartberg, Langeberg and Outeniqua. It runs parallel to the more famous Garden Route, and offers a similar combination of stunning scenery, country guesthouses and old historic towns, yet it attracts a fraction of the visitors.
