About: The Garden Route and Little Karoo

At the southern tip of Africa lies one of the most spectacular paradoxes of nature on earth. An arid semi-desert known as the Little Karoo meets a series of mountain ranges in the south that deprive it of much life-sustaining water and, in the process, mark its boundaries with a lush rainforest belt known as the Garden Route. This book will feed the curiosity of those who live in these unique parts of the country and those who travel through them. A lyrical but literal account, its aim is to give a glimpse of what lies out there, seen through the eyes of someone with years of experience in nature conservation and a lifetime of love for these lands that stretch between the desert and the deep.
