Activity knows no boundaries here

What do you get when you combine incredible natural beauty, endless roads and a safe environment?  An urge to get active, of course!



Prince Albert presents an activity for every level of enthusiasm.


If a gentle stroll on a farm or a friendly set of tennis is your thing, you are in the right place. If you are an adrenaline junky, be our guest – shoot down the Swartberg Pass on your mountain bike or hike into Gamkaskloof.


There are lots of options between the extremes, so get your running shoes, bicycle or hat and explore the endless Karoo.
