Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Heidelberg, in Western Cape

Just about halfway between Cape Town and Knysna on the Garden Route of South Africa is the little town of Heidelberg. It is a historical village with some gorgeous old architecture. It is also a convenient place to stop for a snack and refreshments when passing through, and this is exactly where The Biltong Factory comes in.

The Biltong Factory started off as a small operation and has grown into a popular tourist hotspot for those wanting to indulge in some traditional South African fare. Biltong is meat (beef or game, usually) that has been salted, spiced and air-dried to create a really tasty, nutritious snack. It is fantastic for a road trip, as it is light, moreish and easy to hold without making a mess in the car.

Biltong can be dry or wet, or even crisp sticks with different flavours. There is so much scope and variety, and The Biltong Factory uses its skills and experience to create unforgettable flavours and quality. Game meats tend to be less fatty than beef, but there are also lean beef options for those who do not want to indulge in the delicious fatty bits.

Heidelberg has plenty more to offer, despite its being quite small. There are farm stalls and coffee shops to explore, as well as hiking trails and bird-watching spots for those wanting to savour the prettiness of the South African countryside. It is some 275 kilometres from Cape Town and the Cape Town International Airport.
