Enjoy wide open spaces, flat topped mountains, incredible rock formations, and the peace and tranquillity of the awe-inspiring Karoo at Prince Albert in the Western Cape. This charming town is situated just 2km’s from the foot of the Swartberg Pass, and is the perfect base for exploring the wonders of the Swartberg including Gamkaskloof (The Hell) and Meiringspoort. Among the many activities you can enjoy on your visit are hiking, mountain biking, birding, exploring the caves and the incredible plant species in the area. You’ll also enjoy a truly spectacular stargazing experience surrounded by silence and the inky blackness of the Karoo night sky.
Where to stay:
Stay in the luxurious and absolutely breath-taking Vrisch Gewagt farm. This Karoo retreat offers a variety of accommodation options, all with spectacular views of the landscape. Visitors can choose from The Birdwatcher River Cottage, Paradys Huis, Hannes Cottage, The Cook’s Cottage, The Artist River Cottage, The Library Cottage, and Manor House, each of which is uniquely furnished with no expense spared on luxury and comfort.
We ask that you be mindful of the water shortage in the Western Cape and practice #WaterWiseTourism on your visit.
