Little Karoo
is located in the Western Cape in South Africa.

Although lying immediately inland from the Garden Route, this area really could not be much more different. Set at a much higher altitude, the climate here is a good deal warmer and drier, which means that when the weather is great down on the coast it can be too hot and dry up here, but when the coast is cold and windy, the winter months up here can be glorious.

Montagu ... is an interesting old town, set on the north side of a dramatic pass through the Langeberg Mountains, gateway to the Little Karoo and famed for being a major centre for the production of dried fruits.

Sanbona ... is a huge private wildlife reserve covering the dry landscapes to the north of the Langeberg Mountains, the only really decent wildlife reserve in the whole of the Western Cape.

Oudtshoorn ... is the ostrich capital of the world and a fine old settlement with some wonderful farmstead accommodation. The Cango Caves in this area are also a major draw.

Calitzdorp ... is a small town to the west of Oudtshoorn, the area also covers other small dorps including Ladismith.
