The Grass and Wetlands region is unequivocally a birding paradise that lures bird-watchers in their droves.
The route includes South Africa's largest freshwater lake at Chrissiesmeer. Chrissiesmeer also boasts a mysterious giant footprint in rock that matches one in Canada, and hosts an annual frog watching festival in summer and stargazing festival in winter.
A fierce South African (Anglo-Boer) War battle that was fought at Chrissiesmeer is also re-enacted annually.
It is also home to the 1,000-year-old ruins of the lost Legoya people and San paintings.
