olive Schreiner's Grave - In accordance with her wishes, Olive, her husband Samuel Cronwright, their baby and dog were buried here on Buffelskop, about 15 kilometres south of Cradock. The grave is a dome-shaped sarcophagus, as the ground was too rocky to dig a hole. It’s a powerful and hauntingly beautiful spot.

Cradock accommodation in the Eastern Cape Karoo style.

Olive Schreiner loved the Karoo with a passion that is reflected in much of her writing. She spent her early life in the Eastern Cape and its varied landscapes are celebrated in her work, nowhere more evocatively than in her most famous book, A Story of an African Farm.

Wild Fly Fishing in the Karoo - A little closer to Cradock, the Paul's river, whose origins are also fountain sourced, hold several old hippo holes with clear water that also connects with the brown Orange / Fish river water.  The fish (yellowfish, moggel, mudfish, carp and barbel) move up the clear Paul's river in search of food and gravel beds to spawn.  Here, patience and stealthy water craft has the fish literally nymphing at your feet.
