LIT­TLE BIG TOWN

Road Trip - - GEMS TRIP -

Lost in the vast­ness of the Great Ka­roo in the East­ern Cape, the tiny town of Nieu-bethesda lies ap­prox­i­mately 50 kilo­me­tres from Graaff-reinet. Stone wa­ter fur­rows still line the wide, dusty streets – de­void of street­lights and the un­pleas­ant scent of fume-pro­duc­ing in­dus­try – of this an­tique town for­got­ten by time. Whether your in­ter­est lies in art, bush­man paint­ings, fos­sils, climb­ing, hik­ing, bird-watch­ing, moun­tain-bik­ing, horse-rid­ing, game-view­ing, or un­in­ter­rupted star-gaz­ing, Nieu-bethesda will leave the in­ner wan­der­lust ad­ven­turer in you beam­ing with de­light. Food and ac­com­mo­da­tion is as sim­ple and honest as the town it­self, with the crème de la crème on of­fer be­ing The Ka­roo Lamb restau­rant and a three-star self­ca­ter­ing guest house (namely, Ganora Guest Farm). Other highlights in­clude the Sneeu­berg Brew­ery, the Kitch­ing Fos­sil Ex­plo­ration Cen­tre, and pop-up craft mar­kets.to find out more about the town and its many hum­ble of­fer­ings, visit www.nieu-bethesda.com.
