Hantam Karoo

Very worthwhile is a visit to the Calvinia Agricultural Museum in the former Jewish Synagogue. In a very appealing way, the history of the settlement of this area is documented there, covering sheepbreeding and other agricultural subjects.

Wildflower, CalviniaThe Akkerendam Nature Reserve lies 2 km north of Calvinia at the Hantam mountain. This nature protection area is 2500 hectares in size and offers 2 beautiful hiking trails: the Karee Tree route is easy and takes 2 hours; the Sterboom Route takes about 7 hours and leads up the mountain to the plateau. It is a sweat-producing stretch, but the reward of a stunning view is worth it.
