The Maclear district of the North Eastern Cape is at the southern end of the Drakensberg range. Situated between 2000 and 2500m altitude, the
region enjoys a high summer rainfall and very cold winters with snow and frost. The vegetation is montane grassland with a high diversity of orchids, geophytes and other forbs. The area is only accessible to 4-wheel drive
vehicles and can only be visited in the company of local guide Adele Moore. There are numerous spectacular San Hunter-Gatherer Rock Art sites in the
vicinity to which Adele can take visitors.
