ACCOMMODATION IN GRAAFF REINET
This beautiful little town has so many lovely old buildings, museums and art galleries it would take you days to see them all. It is also right in the middle of some incredible scenery, situated as it is in the middle of the Camdeboo National Park. It’s a short drive to see the eerie Valley of Desolation, which is particularly atmospheric at sunrise or sunset. Graaff-Reinet is the only place in South Africa where the agave cactus is grown and where tequila is made – but it’s not called tequila. It is also the centre of the organic lamb farming industry. It is the closest town to the iconic village of Nieu Bethesda.
