Bucklands is about 47 km from the pleasant Karoo town of Steytlerville. If you are looking for “a road less travelled” this is it! Early pioneers and hunters who came up from the Cape in their wagons frequented this historical region, which forms the southern reaches of the Plains of Camdeboo. They came in search of a new life and “white gold” – ivory. They established farms in the valley flanked by the Baviaans and Grootrivier Hoogte that you can visit today. The climate is typically Karoo – dry and healthy with hot days and cold nights. Activities include bird watching, game drives, and overnight camps. Explore age-old San paintings, scenic walks, horse riding and mountain bike routes. Bucklands is situated at the head of Grootrivierspoort. Unforgettable trails and walks down the “poort” amongst yellowwoods, cycads, swimming holes and picnic spots. San caves and paintings and a fossil reef said to be 300 million years old!
