Colesberg Accommodation

The quaint Karoo town of Colesberg is best known for being the 'pitstop' when driving on the N1 between Cape Town and Johannesburg. However there is more to this town than it's convenient location and abundance of overnight accommodation for weary commuters. Whether you are just taking a break for the night or spending a few days, Colesberg has a lot to offer.

Since Colesberg has an amazing climate with hot summer days and moderate temperatures in winter, outdoor activities are ideal! Enjoy the starkly beautiful karoo landscape and flora and fauna by hiking or mountain-biking around Coleskop, the mountain after which the town is named. For the water babies, Gariep Dam is nearby and hosts a variety of water sports, events and tours of the dam wall. Many of these outdoor attractions are in walking distance of the hotels and bed & breakfasts around Colesberg.

Animal life plays a big part in Colesberg, since it is primarily a sheep-farming area producing many of South Africa's top merinos. It is also renowned for producing high-quality racehorses and many stud farms, including one owned by golfer Gary Player, are located here. If you are interested in the wild(life) side of Colesberg, visit the Horse Mill in Bell Street or arrange to tour one of the town's historic farms. There are also Game Farms in Colesberg, and hunting trips can be arranged for those who are so inclined.

While you are in Colesberg, take the opportunity to learn about and enjoy it's rich cultural history. Take a walking tour of the town where you can appreciate the early Karoo architecture of the oldest buildings which display a mixture of Cape Dutch and Georgian styles - complete with reed ceilings, yellowwood beams, small gardens and white-washed gables. The Kemper Museum is fascinating with its ancient fossil displays, photo exhibition of the Karoo nomads' lives and re enactment of the Erasmus Jacobs' discovery of "Eureka" at Hopetown (the first recorded diamond find in South Africa) and definitely worth a visit.

With so much to see and do in Colesberg, you may want to spend a few days. Check out some of the self-catering accommodation on offer which will allow you the freedom to sample the local fare of the area.

Colesberg is a marvellous 'stopover spot', when breaking a long journey between Jhb/Pretoria and the Eastern/Western Cape. Great accommodation and great Karoo cuisine!
