Located in South Africa :: Western Cape (Klein Karoo)  :: Calitzdorp
Category: Attraction :: Historical Site

Matjiesvlei is just a few kilometers away from Calitzdorp. You turn off to the left into the mountains and then down into a valley. From the turn-off it is a bit of a narrow mountain pass, but it's not 4X4. There are 4X4 routes on the farms.

Matjiesvlei is not a small town, nor village, nor even any more, it’s just an old interesting little place. Although the little museum years ago was a post office and small school, and contains a wonderful collection of stories about the area.

It appears that the farmers around the vlei area have turned all buildings into ‘holiday cottages’, but some of these cottages are now owned privately by people living elsewhere.

There is no shop / garage/ café etc. and there is no cell-phone reception, making it a lovely area to get away, enjoy peace and quiet and nature.
