Wonderful experience
Jun 2013 • Couples
Thanks to Sue and her wealth of knowledge to show us the finer points of Karoo plant life. We had a wonderful 2 1/2 hours with her. On the surface (if you'll excuse the pun) it was just walking around what seemed a dry, lifeless bit of dirt. But Sue's insight, experience and explanations brought the whole area alive in the minutest detail. Wonderful!!!

The Karoo veld through fresh eyes
Mar 2013 • Friends
This is an absolute must for lovers of the outdoors and nature. The perception that the Karoo veld is barren and boring is very quickly dispelled after a walk on Wolwekraal with renowned botanist, Sue Milton Dean. The journey into the micro world of tiny succulents and symbiotic existence between insects and plants is nothing short of amazing. Sue has certainly opened my eyes to the small wonders of the Karoo. I walk much more lightly on the veld now and watch where I tread in fear of damaging this fragile and fascinating landscape.

This is an absolute MUST DO for visitors to Prince Albert.
