There is an Olifantsriver in the Little Karoo just south of Oudtshoorn,
running in westernly direction and joins the Gamkariver at about 33d40m S ;
21d42m E near Calitzdorp. Attakwaskloof lies 30 km directly south from this
river though with the Outeniqua Mountains in between.
We have a standing joke about the numerous Olifants Rivers in SA.
I'll see if I can trace the farm.
