Books Info:

The Garden Route and Little Karoo free pdf 'A book that is a joy to pick up and page through - one that will always take me back to where I've been.' Such is the intention behind this book, a description of the lush rainforest area of the Garden Route and the paradox of its proximity with the semi-desert of the Little Karoo. The author explores key areas of the coastal stretch between Mossel Bay and Storms River and of the broad valley, the Little Karoo, on the other side of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikama mountains. Both regions are home to a great variety of plants and animals and are opened up and linked by roads built with great skill and massive effort through mountain passes and across rivers. Thousands visit these spectacular areas, heading for the sea or - in the opposite direction - the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees and the Cango Caves. This book will give them a glimpse of the wild and wonderful life along the way in a land steeped in history and natural diversity.
