Description: South africa's undiscovered gem - the Western Cape. In spring this hauntingly beautiful area explodes into a kaleidoscope of brilliant flowers. Here, too, are 5 million year old fossils that lie in-situ for all to see. This proverbial garden of eden is the legendary home of Eve - her 117 000 year old footprint has been found alongside the Langebaan Lagoon. This was also the home of the San people who left their paintings on the walls of caves throughout the Cedarberg, a range of mountains where nature has over the aeons carved monumental sandstone sculptures. It's also an area that inspired Louis Leipoldt, the well known South African poet who lies buried in a cave in his beloved mountains.
