The pretty little railway town of Touws River, between De Doorns and Matjiesfontein in the little Karoo, lies some 185 kilometres east of Cape Town.
Touws River is set on the fringes of the Klein Karoo, basically a valley sandwiched between the Langeberg and the Outeniqua Mountains, which in turn separates the Little Karoo from the Garden Route’s coastal strip. The town, built on the banks of the Touws River, is one of few towns this close to Cape Town to have escaped, for the most part, the overexcited exodus of Capetonians to ‘weekend’ homes in villages within easy reach of city living - possibly because the N1 passes through it.
Secure parking and free Wi-Fi are provided on the guest farm. The guests farm is pet-friendly by prior arrangement - farm birds and animals roam around freely.
'Touws' is the Hottentot word for ‘gate’ and the town is regarded as the gateway to Route 62, the longest wine route in the world, and as a ‘doorway’ to the Karoo. The town is also on the national flower route, which, between July and September, is alive with the vivid shades of Karoo flowers. Touws River is also home to the Cape’s famous fynbos, succulent Karoo and rare renosterveld vegetation and its wide spaces and beautiful views make it a wonderful space in which to unwind.
Visit the Loganda pillars, used for astronomical calculations in the 1880s, and the Kagga Kamma reserve to the north of Touws River, where ancient San painting sites are said to be 6000 years old.
