On the banks of the Sundays River inside the Camdeboo National Park in South Africa lies a town which is exciting the interest of both domestic and international visitors to South Africa.
This town is Graaff-Reinet and its more than 220 national monuments and Cape Dutch architecture have made this small town into a sort of time capsule of what life was like in the early frontier days of the Cape colony.
Accommodation that is found here is as varied as the attractions which can be found in the town and throughout the entire area.
The choices are mind boggling, there’s something for everyone, from the most humble camping site to 5 star luxury lodges, if you’re in the area for any length of time you’ll realise that your stay and trip can make your experience of the this Eastern part of the Cape into a world class holiday.
For those looking for a family getaway one of the best choices of Graaff-Reinet accommodation is the self catering units which can be found throughout the area. The self catering units are ideal for larger groups or family units because they allow for an extremely flexible schedule.
A flexible schedule might just be what many people would prefer due to the extremely varied attractions and diversions there are in both the town itself and in the area outside the town. Either way you will never be bored and you will always have something exciting to do.
Much of the Graaff-Reinet accommodation takes this into account and many of the Bed and Breakfast owners will be more than willing to give a visitor pointers about the activities in the area.
If you are visiting the area ask the management of your Graaff-Reinet accommodation to recommend some activities in the area. These can include fly fishing, nature walks, micro lighting or even a trip to view some of the many dinosaur fossils in the area.
No matter what Graaff-Reinet accommodation you choose you’re bound to find something in the town that will excite your interest, remember that this is just your base camp when you explore this fascinating region.
