In the 'hood, De Rust as a destination

The quaint little Victorian town of De Rust, on Route 62, is conveniently positioned at the southern entrance to Meiringspoort - a magnificent gorge through the Swartberg Mountain Range - and just a few kilometres from Oudtshoorn, the ostrich capital of the country. De Rust might be small but it is charming and has become something of a haven for artists and is famous for its dessert wines ... cont.
