Soak up the atmosphere and act like you live here
Immerse yourself in village life.
There are lots to do if you want to feel what it is like to live in a town like Prince Albert.
Go to the Saturday markie and have a coffee with locals, visit a community project or relax on the stoep with the Prince Albert Friend newspaper.
Don’t forget to go for a picnic or walk a labyrinth and why not visit our library for a good read or to catch up on the latest magazines.

Prince Albert Parkrun is a free, timed, 5km run that starts every Saturday morning at the Odendaal Sportgronde. April to September we start at 8 am, October to March we start at 7 am. It is part of the growing parkrun phenomenon around the world.
The route includes a bit of tar, some gravel track and about 2 km of trial in the Gordon Koppie. It is a lovely route with fantastic views and it gets you right into the Karoo veld.
We welcome parkrunners from all over South Africa and around the world on a Saturday morning.
Comrades king, Bruce Fordyce and his wife Gill visited Prince Albert during December 2014 to look at a possible route and then returned for the inaugural run on 6 June 2015. Bruce has friends (Di and Jeremy Freemantle) in Prince Albert and old family ties – his great grandfather, Dr Pieter Luttig, was the first locally born doctor and the only person to have a car in those days.
