Lazy trails through the Little Karoo

Just about everyone knows the R62 through the Little Karoo, but tar roads  don’t always reach all a region’s beauty spots. When you’re driving there next, explore some of the back roads…  

The Little Karoo is one of our country’s best destinations for long-distance drives. And rightly so – the famous R62 takes you past quaint rural towns, over impressive mountain passes and through vast landscapes. Then there’s a network of dirt roads that get less traffic and shows you a different side of this region. There’s even a nature reserve along the way as well as some lovely guest farms with campsites and 4x4 trails where you can relax in remote peace and quiet.

Some of them don’t even have any cellphone signal; so if you really want to get away from the world, these back roads are just what you need.
