Valley of Desolation
Have you heard of the Valley of Desolation? It is a special place, with rock formation created over millions of years, that make you feel on top of the world. And just for fun, you can drive around the Camdeboo National Park, and see some wildlife too!
Spectacular scenery & Plains Game
One of our favorite National Parks in the country, the Mountain Zebra National Park, will take your breath away with the beautiful scenery, plains game, cheetah and lion that you would be able to view.
Fly Fishing with an experienced guide
Experience Wild Fly Fishing in the Karoo. Think along the lines of "Fly Fishing in the Yemen", as this area is classed as semi-desert, but the waters are rich with insect life and the trout grow phenominally!
A Little bit of Art
One of South Africa's foremost abstract artists, and probably the best water color artists was born in Somerset East, and left a collection of his works to the town that he loved so much. Come and experience Walter Battiss...invent yourself...
Did you know that you can still see fossils, in the ground, that are millions of years old? We take you on a journey to see what lies beneath our feet.
