Enjoy the 19th-Century Charm of Graaff-Reinet With a Stay in Our Accommodation

Escaping to another time and place is rare these days; it may seem almost as if every corner of the country is permeated with a striving towards modern society’s rat race. Once in a while, it’s nice to just get away from it all – away from the blaring sirens, roaring traffic, and overcrowded cities. For a little peace and quiet, there is no place quite like the Gem of the Karoo – Graaff-Reinet. If you have been looking for a vacation spot that is out of the way, our accommodation in this quaint town is perfect for you.

Why Graaff-Reinet Offers a Great Getaway

For those who enjoy exploring places with a rich and deep history, then this is one town for you. The infrastructure is still reminiscent of an era gone by, and because it is the fourth oldest town in South Africa, many of the buildings are continually maintained and restored to their original personality. Old Cape Dutch architecture lines the streets and over 220 buildings have been proclaimed as national heritage sites. The town was established in 1786 and lies in the quiet shadow of the awe-inspiring Sneeuberg mountain range in the Eastern Cape. Right in the bend of the Sundays River, Graaff-Reinet is full of both natural and historical curiosities. Within the town, there are four museums that are home to memorabilia, fossils, art, and almost anything else that paints the story of the Karoo’s remarkable history.

There is no shortage of things to do here, either. The town is surrounded by the Camdeboo National Park, which boasts 249 bird species, 43 mammal species, and 336 plant species. A visit to the Valley of Desolation also offers spectacular views of this untamed world, but you could also stick closer to the town and visit some of its many endearing shops and restaurants.
