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.
