Banish Those Winter Blues with One of the Best Holiday Escapes to the Karoo

Have you been looking for an affordable weekend break in the Karoo over the winter holidays? It has been a long, hot summer and as the cold winds start to blow, many families from all over South Africa will be visiting one of the oldest holiday towns in the Karoo: Graaff-Reinet. Yes, every year, thousands of people head down the famous and scenic Route 62 to the beautiful, historical town of Graaff-Reinet.

In a crook of the Sundays River and in the midst of the Camdeboo National Park, Graaff-Reinet, also known as the “Gem of the Karoo”, is a place of big skies, game farms, starlight instead of street lamps, lamb shanks as opposed to steaks, and a delightful collection of historic Cape Dutch architecture. It is a place where one can enjoy the silence and the starry night sky without all the distractions of big-city life. Offering peace, fun, adventure, and entertainment – with plenty of unique places to see – it promises families, couples, friends, and passers-by a chance to escape the world, catch their breath, and live in the moment.
