About the Tour

Take a stroll with me through the heart of Clanwilliam. Meet some of the locals, hear about the town's red gold, invest in some veldskoene, and sample perhaps the best biltong in South Africa.

Clanwilliam is one of the ten oldest towns in South Africa. It's the perfect base for excursions into the Cederberg and and a charming example of old-world hospitality at the edge of the Karoo.

Tips

Places to stop along the way

Nancy's Tearoom, Old Gaol, Ramskop Butchery, Strassberger Shoe Factory, Yellow Aloe

Best time of day

Anytime between morning and sunset, except in summer when its best to avoid going out in the mid-day, as it can get thoroughly hot. The Clanwilliam Museum inside the Old Gaol is open on weekdays from 8am to 12:30pm and on Saturday from 9am to 12pm. Busy Saturday mornings are a great time to experience the vibe of the town.

Precautions

Clanwilliam is a small and friendly town but always be safety conscious. Make sure you wear sunscreen, carry water, and wear a hat. If possible, avoid the mid-day heat in summer.
