Just two hours’ drive from Cape Town, between Piketberg and Verlorenvlei, lies the charming village of Redelinghuys. The town was founded on what was originally a farm named Wittedrift and today is a refuge away from fast paced life and a sought-after getaway for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers.
Visitors to Redelinghuys can look forward to quaint country charm, beautiful historic architecture, and warm friendly hospitality, all surrounded by stunning scenery – with the Verlorenvlei estuary (one of the largest natural wetlands and a RAMSAR protected sites) on Redelinghuys’ doorstep, as well as the beaches of Elands Bay being close by.
There is a myriad of activities to experience in the area, from hiking to 4×4’ing, canoeing, birdwatching, crayfish diving, mountain biking, sightseeing tours and more. For those looking for a slower pace, you can enjoy a variety of cafés and eateries, wine-tasting, crafts, and farm stalls.
