What's of interest in the area :

    Tours can be arranged.
  • The Hennie-Steyn bridge is the longest road/rail bridge in Southern Africa - It's a great place to stop and have a sundowner as you look down at the Orange River as it flows into Gariep Dam.
  • Bethulie dam is a good place to fish or kayak and is in pleasant walking distance (particularly with dogs)!
  • You can go cycling . . .
  • Play a 9-hole round of golf or a game of lawn bowls.
  • Take a drive to  Gariep Dam for a boat trip or dam-wall tour.
