Colesberg - A great place to visit if you want to experience the countryside and find inner peace.

Ideal stopover for travelers to the Cape - We used Colesburg as our stopover travelling from Johannesburg to George and then returning to Lydenburg. The journey through the magnificent scenery of the Karoo was breathtaking. Words are inadequate to describe the beauty of this part of South Africa.

Small town = great rest stop on N1 - Colesberg is great for an overnight stay between Joburg and Cape Town.

Colesberg - My family and I stayed overnight in Colesberg whilst travelling from Durban to Cape Town. The town is very attractive with its old stone architecture and the people who ran our accommodation and the restaurant we had supper at were very friendly. We walked from our accommodation to the restaurant to have supper and felt very safe.
