Explore the rich history of a small Karoo community and the majestic landscape around it
Why was it possible to establish a farm where the village lies today? How could the community survive so isolated and in such a harsh landscape? Who was brave enough to build a road across the Swartberg mountain?
You do not have to be a historian to enjoy the many stories that tell our history! Apart from being enlightened about how early settlers made – and enjoyed – a life, you may even find out what a set of false teeth and a flying doctor have in common.
