Cheerio Gardens

On route to Tzaneen, in the heart of the Magoebaskloof mountain area you will find the famous Cheerio Gardens, where hundreds of different Japanese flowering cherry trees come into spectacular bloom during late September / early October.
 
What makes this beautiful site even more spectacular, is the fact that most other gardens in the vicinity are also then ablaze with the vibrant colours of azaleas, crab apples and other spring-flowering shrubs and trees.

The Ostrich Boom - by Adri Odendaal

The main reason for Oudtshoorn’s quick fortune can be summed up in the unlikely form of the ostrich.
 
The huge flightless bird, indigenous to Africa, and ideally suited to the Karoo’s dry environment, produced magnificent feathers that had become extremely popular as high fashion accessories in Britian and Europe, especially when feather trimming for hats and boas. 
 

River Capture site in Georges Valley

A River Capture site can be found nine kilometres down the Georges Valley Road, at the turn off to the Wolkberg Wilderness Area, a point on the Letaba River where a prehistoric act of “piracy“ occurred.
 
This very rare example of stream piracy occurs when streams increase the size of their valleys by the erosion of the soil and rocks surrounding their channels, either by widening their channels or by head ward erosion.
