Arniston/Waenhuiskrans PDF Print E-mail

Arniston BayArniston is a village where time has stood still; where the practices of generations of fishermen quietly continue without interruption. But this sleepy little coastal town has seen its fair share of drama.

The name Arniston comes from the British transport/hospital ship that sank near the coast in 1815. The HMS Arniston was carrying 378 pasengers (mainly wounded soldiers as well as women and children) and was sailing from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) back to England when it hit a reef. Only six passengers survived the ordeal.

Botriver PDF Print E-mail


To the average visitor, Botriver might seem dull and boring, with nothing to do.

 Au contraire, my friends.

This sleepy little town is bustling with activity: Botriver Hotel is being renovated, there are quiz evenings at the restaurant by the station and sporting action with MTB and trail running events in the area.

Besides the horse-riding,  and quad biking there are hiking trails. Try the new 4-day Green Mountain eco route, a slack-packing trail with accomodation in guest houses and scrumptioous meals in local eateries. For the less industrious, amble through the vineyards or visit a restaurant or farmstall.

But there are also wine tours to take. Visit one of the wine farms in the Botriver district to taste the fruit of the 2011 harvest... 

Many of the wine estates also offer accommodation, so if you find you have sampled too ambitiously, you can collapse onto a homely bed on the farm.

The area lays claim to the De Hoop Nature Reserve which covers 60 000 hectares of endangered fynbos.

An ideal spot for game viewing and birdwatching (South Africa's national bird, the Blue Crane, can be seen too).

Caledon PDF Print E-mail

Image Caledon is known as the 'Capital of the Overberg'. Eventhough to some it is a simply another town along the N2, it does lend itself to some extraordinary history. Lying a mere 120 km from Cape Town heading towards George, it owes its origin to the hot water springs on the slopes of the Klein Swartberg.  The hot mineral baths today form part of the Caledon Casino Hotel & Spa, an elegant establishment, known the world over for its warm hospitality, well appointed conference centre, a variety of sporting amenities, beauty clinic and excellent personal service.

Another asset of Caledon is the world-renowned wild flower garden and reserve famed for its splendid display of wildflowers (up to 135 different species of proteas). Beginning and ending at the garden is an enticing 10 km, 3–4 hour walk that traverses the wider area. Along this walk you will find charming pathways and wooden bridges, lawns, picnic spots, indigenous trees, shrubs and prolific birdlife - you may even be lucky enough to spot the endemic Cape Sugarbird. A wild flower show is held every September. 

Visit the House Museum at 11 Constitution Street  to discover new facts about a past that couldperhaps link you to your family tree.

Fly fishermen can enjoy still waters 5 kilometers outside Caledon where the farm also offers many activities for adventure seekers. Among the activities are:  trout & carp fishing, 4 x 4 trail, mountain biking, abseiling at the waterfall, hiking on all farm routes, water skiing with own boat and picnicking alongside the beautiful dam. 

 Accommodation in Caledon ranges from hotels, B&B’s, self-catering and award-winning farm accommodation.

Genadendal Info PDF Print E-mail

Image Welcomed by a timeless feeling when entering this town. Of course. This town is almost 300 years old. Genadendal ('Valley of Grace') was established in 1738 by missionary  George Schmidt, who was sent by the German Moravian Churc to convert the Khoi people. The focus of the town is the museum complex, a National Cultural Treasure which consist of 25 museums. The old buildings are dotted amongst ancient  oaks.

One of the oldest mission printing presses in South Africa could be found in the Old Print Shop. The Water Mill offers bread made from stone-ground flour and baked in open-air ovens. Be sure to taste the rooibos drink they serve at reception...

The Moravian Church is known for its talented choir and brass band performances. Visit during the Greyton Classis classical music festival.

Grabouw & Elgin Info PDF Print E-mail


Grabouw is the main town of the Elgin valley, one of the most scenic farming areas in South Africa with a beautiful mountain range and diverse fynbos vegetation. This agricultural centre is home to apple and pear farmers and producers of some stunning cold-region wines. Ideal for pinot noir and Rhine riesling, the sauvignon blancs of this mountainous area are some of the best in South Africa. Apart from indulging in the local viniferous fair, sample brandy at Oude Molen, freshly squeesed apple juice or cider from a farm stall.

Fill a picnic basket with freshly baked pies and spread the blanket under a apple tree. Or sample the local cuisine.

An outdoor lover? Take a hike. Literally. Grabouw lies adjacent to the Kogelberg Biosphere reserve,  the Hottentots Holland Nature reserve, pine forests and farms. There are many trails to pick from, ranging from a few kilometers to gruelling ten-day hikes. The new Green Mountain eco trail is a four-day slack packing route traversing the mountain, fynbos and orchards.

Even slower? Play a round of golf, go kajaking or cuddle up with a good book.

If you want to go faster - rent a mountain bike or do a quad bike or motorbike trip. Go on a 4x4 adventure. Rent or bring or own vehicle.

Trips to the surrounding apple and rose farms can be arranged. Visit the open gardens in November to see stunning rose gardens, take a drive in springtime to admire the soft pinks and white of the fruit tree in blossom or take part in the Oude Molen mountain bike race in August. Dress up in fancy dress and join the Jolly Jester race in December.

Slow or fast, lazy or active, wine drinker or gourmand - Grabouw offers it all.

L'Agulhas PDF Print E-mail

The famous L'Agulhas Lighthouse

Cape L'Agulhas is the southern most town in Africa where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. For this reason it is a prime tourist destination. L'Agulhas also boasts the oldest working lighthouse in South Africa, which has an interesting museum to visit.

This coastline is extremely ominous and many ships have floundered here. L'Agulhas gets its rich heritage from the shipwreck survivors of many nationalities who settled in this desolate place. The name L'Agulhas means Cape of Needles (referring to the jagged rocks of the coastline and also the fact that a compass shows no real deviation between true north and magnetic north at this spot).

Many of the old houses have been bought by city dwellers and been lovingly restored to their former grace. With its narrow streets and quaint architecture, Napier is a town full of charm.

Riviersonderend is a small farming community which developed out of a service to the farms in the surrounding area. It has a very peaceful and rural atmosphere with cattle and sheep lazily roaming the green pastures. The mountain water is brown in colour (caused by organic plant material) and originates from the southern slope of  the Riviersonderend mountains. It is believed to be the purest drinking water in this country.

There are many beautiful walks and hikes to take and nature lovers will delight  in the breathtaking views across the valley.



Stanford PDF Print E-mail

Stanford, South AfricaStanford is a historic little village east of the coastal town of Hermanus. It was established as a farming community. The roads are narrow and the majority still gravel. The houses are full of character and many have been restored to their former glory.There are interesting little shops, art galleries and restaurants and on Saturdays the locals sell their produce at the organic market in the centre of town.

Visit the Birkenhead micro-brewery for a unique beer tasting and lunch. Take children to the Klein River Cheese, a dairy farm 7 km outside Stanford. They can enjoy the extensive playground and tame farm animals - pigs, goats and fowls while you indulge in a picnic basket, but order adhead. The dairy sells their cheeses and has won numerous awards. There are many adventure tours on offer, including 4 x4 trails, quad-biking, hikes and shark-cage diving in the nearby town of Gansbaai.

Struisbaai PDF Print E-mail

ImageStruisbaai is situated just four kilometers from Cape L'Agulhus (the southern most tip of Africa, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet). The beach here is exquisite, with an almost subtropical feel. The water is crystal clear and its brilliant colour is exaggerated by the colourful boats which reside in the harbour. There is a lovely little seafood restaurant at the harbour where you can dine on some freshly caught fish whilst watching the picturesque scene of the locals bartering with fishermen for their daily catch.

History of Struisbaai 


Struisbaai is believed to have gotten its name from one of three sources. “Straw bay” - because of the thatched roofs of the fisherman's cottages. “Struisvogel”, meaning ostrich, or named after an old Dutch word meaning “huge” - in reference to the size of the beach.There is a 24km sandy coastline extending from Struisbaai to Arniston, named Struisbaaiplaat (believed to be the longest uninterrupted beach in the Southern Hemisphere).

Suurbraak PDF Print E-mail
Image of SuurbraakThere is no doubt that SUURBRAAK on the R324 is one of the most beautiful villages in the Western Cape. It was not called Xairu (“Beautiful” or “Paradise”) by the Attequa Tribe for nothing. Situated 250km from Cape Town, 20km northeast of Swellendam (N2), 32km west of Heidelberg and 24km southwest of Barrydale (over the magnificent Tradouws Pass) the historical village, with its 3000 residents, nestles snugly under large oak trees next to the Tradouw/Buffeljags River and almost overpowering Langeberg Mountains (1500m). The town was established in 1812 as a missionary station. The people live close to the ground and some still cook on wood stoves. Local Lawn Services are provided by roaming animals…The historical cottages, Information Centre, churches, shops, clinic, Municipal offices, Library, Post Office, Police Station, crèche and Community Hall along the Main Road will always form the backbone of most activities, but the many upgradings and new building projects in the town reflect that more and more jobs are being created by and for locals and nature lovers settling in the side streets.
