The Beauty of Touws River

The Beauty of Touws River

Website

The pretty little railway town of Touws River, between Barrydale and Ladismith in the little Karoo, lies 185 kilometres east of Cape Town.

'Touws' is the Hottentot word for ‘gate’ and the town is regarded as the gateway to Route 62, the longest wine route in the world, and as a ‘doorway’ to the Karoo. The town is also on the national flower route, which, between July and September, is alive with the vivid shades of Karoo flowers. Touws River is also home to the Cape’s famous fynbos, succulent Karoo and rare renosterveld vegetation and its wide spaces and beautiful views make it a wonderful space in which to unwind.
