Driving into town from the N7, pass straight over the first stop street on the R303 towards Ceres and travel over Middelberg pass into the Koue Bokkeveld – home of Ceres fruits. Explore the wine farms in Ceres, Wolseley and Tulbach, or drive to Porterville and visit the Waterfall Farm (tel nr 082 8781358) to hike 22 waterfalls in 2 hours.
If you have more time you can always hike the Grootwinterhoek hiking trail with “Die Hel” swim spot, which has been rated the no. 1 natural swimming pool in South Africa. The hike is a full day 18km there and back, but definitely worth it.
