Area Information:

Cradled in a crook of the Sundays River and surrounded by the Camdeboo National Park lies GRAAFF-REINET with its unique old-world character - the town known as the "GEM OF THE KAROO".
Graaff-Reinet is named after Cornelis Jacob van de Graaf and his wife Cornelia Reynet and is the fourth oldest settlement in South Africa (after Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Swellendam). The town was established in 1786 and thus experienced four changes of supreme government - including the proclamation of the so-called "Republic of Graaff-Reinet".

Property Facilities:

This cheerful complex is surrounded by beautiful gardens, complete with free Wi-Fi on premises, swimming pool with a baby pool, swings for children, braai areas and safe off-street parking with remote controlled gates - creating a space inviting guests to relax and unwind.

Attractions:

One of the 12 most spectacular cactus and succulent gardens in the world, the Obesa Cactus and Succulent Garden, is situated opposite Obesa Lodge.
Reinet House: Once the home of Rev Andrew Murray and Charles Murray for over 80 years, it was completed in 1812 and fully restored in 1947, it opened up as a cultural history museum in 1956.
Military History Museum.
Old Library Museum.
National Monuments.
The CAMDEBOO NATIONAL PARK, nestled in the horseshoe bend of the Sundays River and protected by the Sneeuberg mountains, is 19457 ha and virtually encloses Graaff-Reinet. The park includes the Valley of Desolation and the Nqweba Dam.
The VALLEY OF DESOLATION with its sheer cliffs and precariously balanced columns of dolerite which rise 120 metres from the valley floor, against the timeless backdrop of the vast plains of the Camdeboo is a magnificent and unforgettable site to see.
