The Karoo is my favourite place on earth and time and time again I am suprised how full of life this deserted region in South Africa is.
We visited Red Stone Hills, approx. 30 km west of Oudtshoorn. The tops of the mountains still full of snow, the nights freezing cold and the days nice and warm.
Petro Potgieter runs lovely authentic voortrekker cottages that are equipped with everything that one needs in both winter and summer. The dining room with its build-in braai is magnificient, our own indoor bonfire kept us warm at night.
With more than 200 bird species in the area, Red Stone Hills is a walhalla for birders, Not only booted eagles and birds of prey, but also various species of sunbird. The more adventurous will enjoy this part of the world as. Magnificient walks with spectacular views. But if you rather sit on the porch and read a book, then Red Stone Hills is the right place to stay. Close enough to shops and away enough to enjoy quietness and starry nights.
