2 Days / 1 Night Forgotten Route with Train to Karoo

2 Days / 1 Night Forgotten Route with Train to Karoo

The tour departs from the Tourism Information Centre in Cape Town, we do a short city walk and make our way to the Kimberley Hotel (official departure point in the old days to the mining fields) before we depart to Rawsonville on our bus where we meet the Le Roux family for a spot of wine tasting at their boutique estate.

We board the train at Worcestor and travel by train between Worcestor and Matjiesfontein. One road leads in and out of Matjiesfontein, and on it sit a coffee shop, a museum (which our passports gained us free entry into after dinner on our odd night stroll), an out-of-service two-pump Shell Petrol Station, the Laird’s Arms pub and the Rietfontein Nature Reserve, our evening lodging.

We join John the entertainer for a bizarre bus tour of the town, some honkey tonk in the pub followed by dinner catered for at our lodging. Then, go back in the hotel.

On Saturday after breakfast we visit the famous graveyard before heading to Montagu in our bus where we meet with a local meat merchant to experience a behind the scenes look at Biltong production. We wander through the local goods market before we continue to Ashton for a local lunch and an interesting tastings experience.

Our last stop is at a local Olive farm where we will meet the owner and taste their various products. We make our way back on our bus to Cape Town where we end the tour at the Cape Town Tourism Offices. The tour departs from the Tourism Information Centre in Cape Town, we do a short city walk and make our way to the Kimberley Hotel (official departure point in the old days to the mining fields) before we depart to Rawsonville on our bus where we meet the Le Roux family for a spot of wine tasting at their boutique estate.
