Travelling Information

Hospital given is Ceres Private Hospital. Doctors are Marias, Laubscher, Kruger.

The R355 from Ceres, past the Tankwa Karoo NP, to Calvinia, is generally in good condition. It has been reported that due to the small hard stones on the surface, it could cause tyre punctures. But the road is well graded, not many potholes, and can be comfortably driven with a sedan. (January 2015).

 Travel Tip!

This is a nice town to visit in winter for snow.
