Clanwilliam Museum & TOWN TOUR

Church in Clanwilliam Town
Clanwilliam is one of the 10 oldest towns in the country. (Number 7 if we are counting...) Visit the fascinating Clanwilliam Museum to learn about the Cederberg’s unique history from the San bushmen people and their rock art to the Settlers and even the Anglo-Boer war. Find out what makes this peaceful part of South Africa tick with displays on citrus farming, rooibos tea, leather goods. And learn about the unique culture of this rural area perhaps typified by the riel dancers. 

Walk down Park Street to see the pretty 1820 Settlers Houses. These are a smaller simpler version of Cape Dutch houses in the winelands. Pop into Strassbergers shoe factory for a pair of immensely comfortable ‘veldskoen’ (hand-made mountain boots which are perfect everyday use).

Learn about our Rooibos Tea industry by visiting the factory and Netmar tea shop. And then round off your morning with a visit to one of our charming coffee shops and boutiques. Clanwilliam has plenty to keep you occupied for at least a morning.
