Re-discover the drive
Pack a picnic, grab the camera and go for a drive.
Prince Albert is perfectly located as launch pad for exploring the Swartberg Mountain, the Little Karoo and the Great Karoo. If you do not want to go far, a gentle drive out of town to appreciate the view or the sunset is in order.
Take a chair – here we stop next to the road to sit for a while. You will be surprised at what that does for your soul.
We put together some suggestions to get you going.

It is a given that you will take a drive along the Weltevrede Valley road to see the sunset.
About 25km along the gravel road you drive up a small pass. At its summit, look down towards the Weltevrede Fig and Guest farm and back towards Prince Albert. As the sun sets the mountains behind are transformed, passing through every shade of blue to the deepest purple, while ahead of you the sun strikes peaks and clouds with golden-orange and sultry-pink hues.

You can stay in the Weltevrede Valley in houses dating from the 19th Century.
