De Krantz Huis is the perfect private getaway, located at the summit of the Van Rhyn’s Pass. With all the wonderful amenities such as the pool and patio area with its breathtaking views of the valley, you might find it hard to leave the serene comfort of your room. If however your are feeling adventurous, here are some of our top recommendations of things to do in the area:

If you visit us during the months of August to October, you can take several guided or unguided tours, either walking or driving. Gardens such as The Hantam Botanical GardenThe Nieuwoudtville Wild Flower reserve, or the Matjiesfontein Padstal & Flower Route are some of our personal favourites.

If you make it to Nieuwoudtville town, we suggest stopping at the Glacial Pavement. where you will have the chance to take a look at the 300 million year old history of the area. If you are in the mood for reflection, why not have a look at the beautiful NG Kerk that was established in 1897. For all you gear-heads out there, we have not forgotten about you. You can visit the Protea Motors Garage showroom to view their collection of cars and bikes.

If you’re still building up the courage to go into town, you can always do some night photography at the biggest quiver tree forest in the southern hemisphere. Be sure to book early as spots are limited.

Shout out to Dear Travallure for inspiring many of these recommendations.
