The tiny town of Piketberg in the Western Cape is beautifully situated in the foothills of the Piketberg mountains. The area around these mountains is used mainly for farming, and if you look, you’ll see wheat being grown as well as the famous Rooibos Tea.
As with many South African towns, there is a big Dutch Reformed Church designed in neo-Gothic style, and this is worth a drive-past for sure
So many people en-route to Cape Town, make it a priority to stop over and explore these small villages as they hold so many attractions and fascinating history. People stopover for a night or so and end up staying far longer. That is why it is important to have good accommodation. Kapteinskloof is sought after because it is so restful and beautiful.
Animal lovers particularly will love knowing that all the farm animals here are not pets – they are family.
