Beaufort West Reviews
Quaint and tranquil surroundings.
Good for a stopover. Many shops and garages to stock up. It’s very hot in December so prepare for heat and have water on hand! We encountered very friendly people, both residents and families passing through Beaufort. We had a very positive experience. Beaufort is literally on the road to Cape Town so it was ideal for a stopover coming from Johannesburg.
Beautiful a must go visit.
More info about Beaufort West
Many words describe Beaufort West; it’s the gateway to, or the capital of, and sometimes referred to as the jewel of, the Karoo. The Karoo is a great big semi-arid desert with huge clear skies and thousands of hardy succulents, some posing as stones to avoid detection. Beaufort West lies at the entrance to this unique ecosystem and travellers between Johannesburg and Cape Town pass through here or use the town as a brief rest stop. In their haste to reach their ultimate destination, they miss out on some of the most amazing landscapes and points of interest that Beaufort West has to offer.
