Over the Karoo to Matjiesfontein

After an excellent breakfast at the Dennehof (left), and a leisurely morning in Prince Albert, we left for the Karoo and a stop-over at the quirky town of Matjiesfontein, a remnant of Victorian colonialism, and the faded elegance of the Lord Milner hotel. With well-preserved shops and post-office, this single street town resembles a film set and the railway station in front of the hotel serves the main line from Cape Town to Johannesburg.
