Calvinia lies in one of South Africa’s largest provinces, the Northern Cape. This little Karoo town sits about halfway between Cape Town and Upington. In Calvinia you can allow yourself to be "transported" to the past without being deprived of all the modern comforts. Relax in the peace and quiet, where the past and present are intertwined.
Calvinia offers a range of accommodation options including Guesthouses, Bed and Breakfast's, self-catering units and farm stays. There are numerous hiking and biking trails throughout Calvinia. These trails offer breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
Akkerendam Nature Reserve with two hiking trails allows you the opportunity to enjoy magnificent scenery and watch the abundant bird life. Spring flowers for nature lovers and the ever popular Meat Festival at the end of August.
