Explore The 4th Oldest Town In South Africa

Graaff-Reinet is best known as the ‘gem of the karoo’, with 220 heritage sites! Located on the bend of the Sundays River and with Camdeboo National Park as its backdrop, this charming and picturesque low-built town will wow you with its ornate Cape Dutch architecture, tree-lined streets, quaint cafes, boutiques and art galleries.  It is perfect for a visit to learn about the area’s history or purchase local traditional produce that continue to be farmed and produced in the area today, such as mohair woollens or ostrich goods.
