This historical valley clouded in mysticism lies in the embracing folds of the Swartberg Mountains. It is where in the 1830’s a group of trek Boers settled and lived in almost total isolation from the outside world.

With the road completed, the little community crumbled. The youngsters now attending schools outside and having been exposed to the bright lights of neighbouring towns soon departed for pastures greener. The others followed due to old age and drought. In 1992 all but one small farm had been sold the remainder later to become the property of Cape Nature.
