East Griqualand Region Of KwaZulu Natal

East Griqualand Accommodation | Accommodation in East GriqualandSituated in the south-western corner of KwaZulu-Natal, the East Griqualand region resembles an expertly crafted tapestry where rolling landscapes in hues of green and blue are set against a dramatic backdrop of the Southern Drakensberg Mountain range. Originally settled by the Griquas, this beautiful land holds a remarkable historical significance, with many of the small towns, named after famous leaders, paying tribute to their heritage with monuments and quaint museums.

The area is predominantly an agricultural stronghold with stock farming at the forefront. Farmlands are lush and boast flourishing herds of cattle and sheep. Enjoying a somewhat colonial lifestyle, the residents share close relationships and often gather at the local Polo Club on a Sunday to watch family and friends, mounted on muscle ripped ponies, thundering up field, turf flying, in pursuit of a tiny white ball. Other sporting clubs include tennis, squash, bowls, cricket, hockey, rugby, cycling and road running and visiting teams and enthusiasts are welcomed with a charming hospitality and warmth.

The natural setting and balmy weather renders the area perfectly suited to outdoor living. Feel the warm morning sunshine on your face as you head out for the day, armed with a walking stick and a smile. Inspired by nature, hiking is a popular pastime and crisp air and breathtaking sights await you. Explore fields and ravines or visit an ancient San Rock Art site. With an abundance of freshwater rivers and dams, fantastic fly-fishing opportunities are available.

Enthusiastic anglers don their waders in the hopes of landing a trophy sized Rainbow or Brown trout. Crystal Spring Dam, which is located in the Mount Currie Nature Reserve, is a favourite spot to catch bluegill, bass, carp and trout. Water sports and boating activities are also available. The reserve is administered by the KwaZulu Natal Parks Board and covers approximately 1700 ha. Visitors are also able to partake in bird-watching, game viewing, hiking, 4x4 trails, walking and kayaking. Other reserves in the area include the Wildfred Bauer and the Mountain Lake Nature Reserves.

For the more adventurous try your hand at paragliding where you can leap from a cliff face and soar over the fields and towns gaining a new perspective of this diverse region. A round of golf can be enjoyed on unique courses set amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the region. The town of Kokstad boasts the only 18 hole course in the region. Call in at working farms where children are able to interact with farm animals or go on a pony ride. Craft shops, museums, local eateries and historical building are also well worth a visit.
