More info about Aberdeen

The town of Aberdeen may be one of the smallest in the Eastern Cape Province, but it is historically significant and has become a key cultural and artistic hub for all arts and culture connoisseurs. Lying at the foot of the majestic Camdeboo Mountains, Aberdeen is strikingly beautiful with dramatic backdrops and undulating fertility to endlessly rivet those travellers who get the chance to visit the area. One of Aberdeen’s most enchanting features is its dedication to Victorian architecture; with many of its homes built before 1890 and sporting distinctive domes, gables, turrets, and plaster motifs the town has been appropriately declared an Architectural Conservation Town. A very special monument in Aberdeen that attracts its fair share of visitors is the Dutch Reformed Church. With its 50m tower being the tallest in South Africa – affectionately nicknamed the ‘Leaning Tower of Aberdeen’ – its huge olive tree in the garden that originates from the actual Garden of Gethsemane, and its unique collection of biblical wall hangings that adorn the church hall, the Dutch Reformed Church is an exceptional dwelling amongst religious and non-religious visitors alike. Another attraction of intrigue particularly for those who love history is the local cemetery. Immaculate and kept in pristine condition, the Aberdeen cemetery is of special historical significance as it is home to quite a few British and Boer soldiers who lost their lives fighting in the Anglo-Boer War. The British graves are numbered and the cemetery is open to the public. For the nature lovers who enjoy being outdoors, the Camdeboo Conservancy between Graaff-Reinet and Aberdeen features eco-friendly activities, rare plants, and horse rides. All in all, it adds up to a wonderful sojourn as you experience the marvellous delights and wonders of Aberdeen.
