Staying in Prince Albert
In the charming and historical Karoo Town of Prince Albert, we take a rest day to enjoy the luxury of civilization before heading off into the wilderness of the Baviaanskloof. Beautifully preserved buildings with a mixture of Cape Dutch, Karoo and Victorian architecture make up this town. It’s very easy to spend hours wandering around the town visiting art galleries, museums, and some excellent restaurants with fine Karoo-style dining. Some of us decided to visit a local olive and organic wine farm a few kilometres out of town, famed for providing a selection of superb wines for the Charlene Wittstock’s and Prince Albert of Monaco wedding. Not ones to turn down the offer of free wine; we happily tasted all 20 of theirs before cycling off to tackle the Kreedouw Pass.
