De Rust Verblyf

De Rust is a partially undiscovered village found at the foot of the imposing Swartberg mountain range, just 35 kilometres from Oudtshoorn. The village has an atmosphere that is typical of most areas found in the Karoo, it is culturally rich, steeped in history and is home to locals who are hospitable and friendly. Those who are lucky enough to live here, enjoy a slow-moving, uncomplicated lifestyle where the air is unpolluted and traffic jams are unheard of.

While unknown to many holidaymakers, tourists who visit the village enjoy it for its peace-inducing setting. De Rust is the ideal getaway if you’re looking for a retreat to quieten your mind. Upon walking the wide, tree-lined streets, marvel at the unique, 19th-century architecture of the historical buildings. During the day, enjoy the hubbub of the locals as they go about their daily living, and don’t be surprised if they extend warm, friendly greetings your way. 

While De Rust is a hive of activity during the day, at night you’ll be greeted by the welcoming sounds of silence. The streets are empty of cars, and the only sounds you might here are the faint hoots of the resident owls.

Enjoy the peace, quiet and sweet sounds of nothing at one of De Rust’s charming Guest Houses.

De Rust was first established in 1900 after local farmer; Petrus Johannes Meiring discovered a route through the seemingly impassable Swartberg Mountain. The pass, which is now referred to as Meiringspoort, is made up of imposing cliffs and unusual rock formation. The discovery was no mean feat as it allowed for a connection between the towns of Klaarstroom and De Rust, and the Klein Karoo and Great Karoo respectively.

De Rust is a perfect base for those wishing to explore the surrounding areas, offering up activity-filled adventures for active families. The Kammanassie Nature Reserve is found in the nearby area and is a sanctuary for the endangered Cape mountain zebra. Kammannasie, meaning ‘fountain of water’, is a fitting name as the park receives rain year-round.  Seasoned hikers looking for their next challenge can embark on a two-day trek through the reserve. While there are no overnight facilities to speak of, the absence of creature comforts will be rewarded by sightings of wildlife in close proximity – think klipspringer, duiker, grey rhebok, kudu and the odd baboon.
