Beaufort West Town of Central Karoo

Quaint well-kept town - Beaufort West may be small but it holds lots of treasures. A stroll along the main street reveals many interesting little shops and beautiful churches. The town is neat and clean; kudos to the residents! Nearby Karoo National Park deserves a good look as well.

Prince Albert Town of Central Karoo

A little town with lots of surprises - Lovely restaurants, shops, and a stunning museum! The Ghost Walk with Ailsa was a highlight, and we got to see more of the beautiful Village of Prince Albert.
