Northern Cape DestinationsCalvinia, Upper Karoo

This attractive Karoo town lies in one of the largest wool-producing districts in South Africa, about half-way between Cape Town and Upington.

The Calvinia Museum, housed in an old Art Deco synagogue in Church Street, focuses on farming, transport and the lifestyle of the early inhabitants. The Tourism Office in the museum arranges guided walking tours of the town's special places of interest.

Two trails through the Akkerendam Nature Reserve offer opportunities to admire the lovely flowers found only in this region. The Hamtam Meat Festival is an event held in Calvinia every year in the last week of August.
