More About


Travelling along the R62 from Barrydale the unmistakable cleft peak of Towerkop comes into view from many miles away. First climbed in 1885 by a 23 year old Ladismith man, Gustav Nefdt, a feat that was not repeated until 1947, the mountain still draws the adventurous.

Just 25 kms east of Ladismith the impressive Seweweekspoort links the Klein and Great Karoo. Glancing upwards from the winding gravel road the tortured folds of the sandstone mountains are awe inspiring and well worth the short detour.
