OTHER PLACES OF INTEREST IN SOUTH AFRICA: 
 
Golden Gate:  This unique national park was created in 1963 to conserve 11 500ha of golden sandstone cliffs and highlands along the Lesotho border with Natal and the Free State provinces. Great caverns and rock shelters are home to various raptors, including the bearded vulture, the black eagle, the blue crane and the jackal buzzard. Animals to be found on the lower grassland slopes include black wildebeest, eland, red hartebeest and oribi.
 
Aliwal North Springs:  The town was originally important during the Cape frontier days as a transport depot, and crossing point of the Orange River. Two thermal springs found on the farm Buffelsvlei (buffalo watering hole) led to its popularity as a health resort. The springs are highly mineralised at temperatures of 31°C.
 
Graaff Reinet:  An historic Karoo (Khoi-Khoi word meaning "land of thirst") frontier town that was established in 1786 to govern an area too remote from the Cape at the time. The desolate plains of the Great Karoo are nearby and good examples of Cape Dutch architecture are found here. The "drosty" (residency) was constructed to house the governor, his family and officials, and their slaves. Today these restored buildings are part of the Drosty Hotel.
 
Mountain Zebra National Park:  Situated in the Bankberg Mountains, on the edge of the Great Karoo, this park is a sanctuary for the very rare Cape mountain zebra, (Equus zebra zebra) , which stands only 1.2m high. Vegetation is typical Karoo with fine acacia, wild olive and succulents like aloes. After good rains in April, the landscape is covered with flowers. Bushman rock paintings can also be viewed.
