Situated at the foot of the Zuurberg Pass, it has been a popular stopover point since the diamond rush of 1869 and remains an attraction for visitors interested in history and authentic colonial architecture. The combination of 19th century South Africa and romantic peace and quiet make for an unforgettable and unique experience.
