The great secret of the Great Karoo: Mount Camdeboo

With a landscape as flat and desolate as this, the wind and the silence comes from everywhere, all around you. The horizon of flat Great Karoo is interrupted only by large, canyon-like mountains that rise like exponential chart lines in the distance. In the middle of May, the almost-winter wind is unforgiving when you’re trying to keep your car on the road - a narrow tar strip that carries on in a straight perspective line about 20 km ahead.
