South African Country Life - - Sumario -

A mon­ster snail glid­ing above a sea of tents, a giant egg ‘float­ing’ in the sky, a mu­tant ve­hi­cle/gon­dola eas­ing across the desert. Sound like a farm­stay? In­deed, but one with a dif­fer­ence, when the crowds de­scend on the re­mote north­ern Ka­roo, and Stone­henge farm is trans­formed into Tankwa Town. It’s that time of year for the wild and won­der­ful AfrikaBurn, so read our fan­tas­tic tips for first-timers be­fore join­ing the rev­elry at what many con­sider to be the coun­try’s pre­mier fes­ti­val of the arts. But in this is­sue there’s some­thing for every­one yearn­ing for a taste of life on the farm. Like a slow day ram­bling and sam­pling our way through the glo­ri­ous wine farms of the Over­berg’s Hemel-en-Aarde Val­ley, or a visit to idyl­lic Irene Dairy Farm, to lap up the his­tory, watch the milk­ing, feast on farm-fresh food and walk the av­enues of old oaks.
