Valley of Desolation

Recommended
You can't remain indifferent to or tire of the view of Graaff-Reinet, the arid plains and Spandaukop Mountain afforded by the Valley of Desolation.Columns of dolerite appear as you drive by, further enhancing the spectacle, which reaches its natural climax at dawn and dusk when the sun's rays light up the landscape.
