In my new series, showcasing some magnificent swathes of sand from around the world, see the Gamtoos River Coastal Reserve.
We had driven the striking Garden Route (for those unfamiliarwith South Africa, this route is more coastal than garden-like, heading southeast from Cape Town). Shortly after Tsitsikamma National Park, we saw, in the distance, these enormous dunes.
They turned out to be the Gamtoos River dunes and a more raw, lonely, windswept landscape would be hard to find.
Take a virtual visit here, to see for yourself:
