"One of our favorite stops in that area, however, was at Ganora Farm, dating back to the mid-1700’s, situated in the foothills of the majestic Snow Berg Range. At lunch, we met Hester, one of the farm owners, and enjoyed dining on traditional South African bobotie with spiced rice, organically grown vegetable dishes, koeksisters, and melktert (milk tart). Hester’s husband Jan-Peet has a rare collection of fossils, all discovered on the farm, and dating to about 280 million years ago when mammal-like reptiles roamed the earth pre-dinosaurs! The farm also boasts sites with well preserved Koi & San rock paintings and engravings that bring to life 10,000 years of Bushman folklore."
