With vines to one side and a kranz to the other, Calitzdorp Railway Station offers travellers an idyllic space to rest before venturing forth to explore the surrounding Route 62 area. Guests have a choice of staying in the ticket office, Safari tents,backpackers, or camping in their own tents or caravans.. The ticket office, a self-catering unit, with a double bed, and two singles, is provided with white linen and towels. It has two functioning fireplaces which are ideal for the chilly winter evenings. Modern toilets, and hot hoers are a short walk away in the shared ablution block. The backpackers is furnished with bunk beds, and linen is supplied. It has its own toilet and cold shower.The Safari tents are furnished with a double or two single beds and linen and towels are provided. Each campsite is equipped with electricity and water and also has its own barbecue area. The backpackers, and tents share modern ablution facilities with hot showers, as well as a kitchen with a fridge, a gas hob and cutlery and crockery. The Station also offers facilities to host functions and has been the choice venue for film shoots, weddings, weekend workshops, birthday and stag parties, art exhibitions, and the local Winter in Calitzdorp Festival. The typical little Karoo town of Calitzdorp is probably mostly recognized for its production of some of the country’s best port wines. Queen Street is one of the oldest streets in town and begs a stroll to properly absorb the number of Edwardian, Victorian and Karoo-style buildings heavily influenced by English architecture. Activities include walking trails in the Gamkaberg Nature Reserve, and the Redstone Hills, Groenfontein, and Matjiesvlei. Birding in the hills and viewing the fynbos areas are also more than rewarding.

    Little Karoo South Africa

    Little Karoo Backpacker Hostel Accommodation

    The Little Karoo is the hot, dry region squeezed between the Outeniqua Mountains that separate it from the green and luscious Garden Route, and the rugged Swartberg Mountains that separate it from the wider, hotter Great Karoo.

    The well marketed Route 62 extends further than the actual R62, including parts of the Breede River Valley. It's a lovely, quiet alternative to the rather more goal-oriented N2, passing through some interesting little towns and winds its way past loads of wineries and guest farms that specialise in rugged activities like 4x4 trails and quad bike trails. The major part of Route 62 runs straight through the Little Karoo towns of Ashton, Montagu, Barrydale, Ladismith, Calitzdorp, Oudtshoorn and De Rust.

    It's a lot of fun to zig-zag backwards and forwards between the N2 and the R62 over some very scenic mountain passes, alternating between the lush green Garden Route and the drier, more austere Little Karoo. Most well known for its ostrich farms, which have developed into mega tourist traps, the Little Karoo supports a thriving agricultural industry. Olives, deciduous fruit and wine add to the rather heady mix that most local restaurants exploit gleefully.
    Calitzdorp, which is most well known for its great port, holds a port festival every July, and there are fabulous wine farms along the whole length of the R62. Probably the most well known attraction in the region, though, is the enormous Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn. There are some great rock paintings in various parts of the Little Karoo.

    The magnificent landscapes, locally known as red hills, offer some fun day walks, and the high mountains on either side of this long, thin valley, offer fantastic multi-day hikes. There are loads of really great cultural attractions, not least of which is the annual KKNK, the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (Little Karoo National Arts Festival) in Oudtshoorn. It's a party. Big time.
