Scenic views of Patensie and surrounds

A couple of weeks ago I spent a couple of days touring around the Eastern Cape with a group of journalists and one of our stops was in the Gamtoos Valley town of Patensie.  After a visit at the Malan Cucumber Farm we were taken up to their new cucumber tunnels on a koppie outside town and I snapped these pictures of the view.  The Gamtoos Valley truly is a very scenic and undiscovered area with most visitors just heading through to the Baviaanskloof.  For those who don't have the vehicle to go to deep into the Baviaans, its a great idea to just spend a few days in the valley to enjoy the mix of scenic, historic and agricultural attractions coupled with good ol' country hospitality.

  1. Looks like a sweet little valley.

    BTW, did you intentionally put in word verification. I'm seeing a rash of this and bloggers don't even know it's there.
