TRAVEL! HIGH ON THE HOG

 

By Roy Watts

 

 

The Crags - some 20 kilometers from Plettenberg Bay is a wondrous locality featuring golden beaches, unspoiled indigenous forests, and pristine waterways tumbling through the rugged ravines, gorges and gullies that give it its name. An awesome tableau, it is framed by the distant Outeniqua Mountains, all tinged in varying shades of purple.
