  • This place is awesome. If one has time and you are in the area it's just incredible. Go to the top of the mountain and check the view.
  • What a great day, visited Camdeboo National Park including The Valley of Desolation, stunning vistas of the mountains, the valley and Graaff-Reinet from above. Take water, hat and wear good sunscreen. We visited at 9 am in early February and it was very hot. Then we went to the Game Viewing Area just further along the R63. Again well worth a visit.
