Located on the west side of Long Kloof
Characterized as wide, open desert
Ostriches "Wolwekraal was on the sunset-side of the Kloof and his mother always said it was the better side." "By the time he made the Kloof side, God had had nothing left but stones and dust and wagon trees and rhinoceros bush and aloes." "The road gradually got whiter...the wind blew the dust against the bushes and it lay like ash over everything." "The walls of the houses were white...with thatched roofs and tin roofs." "The world suddenly tumbled forward and down the mountainside, with the road zigzagging down to the bottom." Pathway between the Kloof and the Forest through the mountains
Used to travel to Knysna "A constable was standing in the passage, his buttons were much shinier than those of the constable in the Kloof." "Historical Plaques in Knysna, South Africa." Open Plaques. RSA Fellowship, n.d.
