Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Aliwal North, in Eastern Cape

Aliwal North is situated in the Eastern Cape Provinc along the Orange River on an old strategic ford, now upgraded to a pontoon, used by the Voortrekkers and Bushmen and named Aliwal by the Governor of the Cape, Sir Harry Smith, to honor and remember the 1846 battle in which he defeated the Sikhs from India.

The Museum is bursting with a wealth of knowledge and interesting things to see and learn. It is made up of two buildings, the old library dating back to 1876 and the Old Dutch Reformed Church dating back to 1864.

Brimming with culture and history about this little town, you will be able to find historical newspaper collections, photographs, objects and items used during these times and interior displays of street scenes with houses and shops as well as an outside display of old farming methods.
