Graaff-Reinet is the fourth oldest town in South Africa. In the Sunday Times and Tourism SA's Travellers' Choice survey, readers ranked Graaff-Reinet one of the top small towns in South Africa to visit.
Cradled in a crook of the Sundays River, to the approaching traveller, Graaff-Reinet seems like a verdant oasis in the stark surrounding landscape, Yet, practically every visitor remarks on its unique old-world character.

Graaff-Reinet is uniquely surrounded by the Karoo Nature Reserve which is a mecca for hikers, photographers and students of flora and fauna.
Included in this reserve is the famous and awe-inspiring Valley of Desolation as well as the peak Uitkyk, where you can share the vast Karoo skies with the resident Black Eagles in a Microlight (Ultra Light) with an instructor with 20 years experience.
