Exploring South Africa

Spend some time really looking at rock art:The northern Cedarberg, just over two hours north of Cape Town, has some of the most easily accessible and best documented rock art around. If youre in a position to splurge out on a luxury game lodge experience, stay at Bushmanskloof, where youll be pampered and taken on escorted rock art tours. If, however, youd rather watch your budget, Travellers Rest, next door, is an inexpensive self-catering establishment that offers access to the equally spectacular rock art on the Sevilla Trail. You wont be accompanied by a hunky game ranger, but you can buy an inexpensive map and explanatory guidebook.
Ride with the herd at Kaapsehoop: This fabulous, misty, mountainous landscape is home to what is probably the largest herd of feral horses in South Africa. Theyll often join up and spend some time with the domestic horses (and riders, of course) on an escorted horse trail. You also stand a good chance of seeing the rare and endangered blue swallow.
