Valley of Desolation
Camdeboo National Park and the Valley of Desolation is a short 14km drive from the historic town of Graaff-Reinet
Just an hour's drive from Somerset East, the Camdeboo National Park offers a lovely diversion to your day. Then there is the Valley of Desolation, part of the Park, and awe-inspiring landscape of ancient rocks overlooking the stunning Karoo landscape and the Plains of Camdeboo.
This trip can be combined with a historical walk through the town of Graaff-Reinet, or a township walk to experience some of the local culture. Another alternative is to take a short trip to Nieu-Bethesda for lunch and to experience the fossil museum.
