Touws River


... is located around 170km northeast on the N1 from Cape Town in the Overberg area of the Western Cape of South Africa.

This town marks the start of the traverse across semi-deserts of the Great Karoo. In Victoria times it became very important as a depot for steam trains on the new railroad heading inland. The train ards have long since fallen into disrepair, but steam enthusiasts enjoy crawling over rusting hulks in the engine graveyard.

Aquila Game Lodge ... is the only accommodation of note in this area, a rather modest wildlife reserve.
