De Rust


Stay overnight in the Karoo when you book holiday accommodation in De Rust, a pretty little town in the Western Cape. The quaint little Victorian town of De Rust, on Route 62, is conveniently positioned at the southern entrance to Meiringspoort – a magnificent gorge through the Swartberg Mountain Range – and just a few kilometres from Oudtshoorn, the ostrich capital of the country.

De Rust might be small but it is charming and has become something of a haven for artists and is famous for its dessert wines and cheeses. The area, though sometimes dusty and hot, is malaria-free, safe and boasts a fantastic climate with perfect summers and gorgeous winter days, with the chill factor striking only in the evenings. The streets are tree-lined and host to a number of wonderful examples of late 19th century architecture and the town’s drinking water comes from a mountain spring, which residents claim far surpasses that of bottled water.
