Sutherland Town of Namaqualand

Great small town to visit any time of the year - Sutherland is known as being the coldest place in South Africa but can be very hot during the day in summer. Peaceful vistas, no air or light pollution and a rural feel bring back the longings for a time gone by. Local sheep graze in fields adjacent to the lower town. whilst a wide Main road and a very historical church make Sutherland a sleepy Karoo town. The proximity of SALT and the excellent tours they offer bring in many visitors each year.

Sutherland Town of Namaqualand

Middle of Nowhere - Centre of the Universe - Off season Sutherland is quiet and a long way from anywhere. A charming Karoo town with an attractive church, Boer War cemetery and some genuinely good restaurants. Sleepy is the word. Just up the hill is the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) an astronomical facility so famous that it attracts scientists and visitors from all over the World to gaze into the vast vault of Space. Awesome is the word.
