Want to know where those delicious figs which you enjoyed at our breakfast @ De Bergkant Lodge were picked? Weltevrede Fig Farm, just 25 km outside Prince Albert is a chance to see how figs are harvested, processed and packed.
The Fransie Pienaar Museum is a short stroll along Church Street from your private suite or double room @ De
Bergkant Lodge. The building is the original hospital and offers a trip back in time to when the town first developed and claimed its royal name.
Along with some fascinating fossils, it has its own distillery where ‘Witblits’ is produced in the time-honoured manner. Learn how herbal remedies and the use of 'Witblits' is used medically in the valley, both of which can be purchased at the Museum shop, if not sold out!
Situated in the exquisite Prince Albert Valley, the family owned and operated Fernskloof organic wine farm produces handcrafted wines with personality from organically grown grapes. Open for tasting and sales, you are welcomed by Diederik Le Grange, the man behind Fernskloof’s winemaking and viticulture and the seventh-generation family man on the farm with a lineage that hails back to the first Huguenots who arrived in the Cape as early as 1671.
The tasting room is open daily from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm and on Sundays from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm by appointment.
The farm also prides itself on its 16 km hiking or running trail.
Just two kilometers out of town, the Karoo Donkey Sanctuary is the largest donkey rescue centre in Africa. When you visit their happy sanctuary you assist them to rehabilitate and rehome rescues from dire circumstances of both the Chinese donkey skin trade and from over-work, abuse and malnourishment as beasts of burden in the cart-horse industry. Sir Robert, Amazing Grace and Mona are just some of their rescued stars waiting to meet you!
