Graaff-Reinet Town of Karoo Heartland

Beautiful Karoo Town - I would advise anyone wanting to have a rest to visit Graaff Reinet for a few days! It is a lovely town.

Nieu Bethesda Town of Karoo Heartland

Finding Oneself in a "dorpie" - A dorpie in the real sense of the word! The town takes one back to the early settler's days and has been kept so for the many years.. The people are friendly; we leave our room open; we walked through the streets in complete peace. There is still so much to see; so much to learn from the people that live there. A pity that the town is not advertised enough. I only heard about it after watching a programme on Owl House. But there is much more to New Bethesda than just Owl House. A really wonderful place to find yourself.

Nieu Bethesda Town of Karoo Heartland

Nieu Bethesda...charming and quirky - Loved this village, with a charming feel and very beautiful. The drive into the valley where it is situated is very scenic, and the place has an old, isolated (in a good way) village feel to it that makes one feel as if one has stepped back in time. It is peaceful and memorable and the main attraction, the "Owl house", is an unforgettable must see - so glad we visited this town!
