Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Graaff Reinet, in Eastern Cape

The Camdeboo National Park, previously known as the Karoo Nature Reserve, completely surrounds the town of Graaff-Reinet, and it is in turn dominated by the two gloriously unusual geological formations of Spandau Kop and the Valley of Desolation.

The Eerstefontein walk starts and ends at Spandau Kop, which you cannot help but see from the town. In the shadow of this unusual koppie you will find a cactus labyrinth at Obesa Nursery (but that is an aside for those interested in tacking something a little spiritual onto their outing).

You can choose any of three walks that start and end at Spandau Kop gate, and there are a couple of great picnic spots at Eerstfontein and Agterstefontein to round it all off. Look out for the amazing gifbol geophytes, a bulb that looks just like an onion.
