History and Geography

Aberdeen is situated in the Camdeboo Plains against the backdrop of the Camdeboo Mountains on the N9 between Graaff Reinet and the Garden Route. The district is renowned for its wool and mohair, being the largest mohair producing area in South Africa. The town has an extremely healthy climate, a restful and rural atmosphere, unpolluted air and breathtaking starry night skies.

 

Activities

With its rich heritage, Aberdeen is a town that attracts many newcomers, some of them escaping the rushed lifestyle of the big cities! With the healthy climate and the slow pace of life, the town offers a relaxing remedy for the stresses and strains of modern life.

Many artists have settled here including Carlos de Souza, whose intricately decoupage ostrich eggs have found a home throughout the world. Various other crafters have workshops that may be viewed by appointment.

Annual rainfall totals 260 mm, with the plains being hot in summer, and the mountain areas relatively cool throughout the year. During mid-winter snow occurs regularly on the peaks of the Nuweveld Mountains. Pack cool clothing for summer and warm for winter – the region is subject to sudden changes in weather, particularly in the mountain areas.

Fonteinbos Nature Reserve (1500ha.): Has a Perennial spring, a Dinosaur footprint. Birdlife and game includes Springbok, Kudu, Steenbok etc. There are several hiking trails in the reserve and the Camdeboo Mountains, and you can also visit a meteorite site and a petrified forest on nearby farms.

Camdeboo Conservancy: Off the N9 between Graaff-Reinet and Aberdeen lies the “green valley”. One can bathe in the shadow of towering mountains, hear the sound of water flowing everywhere and be blessed with forests of trees and uncountable smaller plants.

Come and join in all the various eco-friendly activities on offer or experience the peace and tranquillity which comes naturally as you enter the Conservancy. Whether you enjoy a day of farming activities or delight in a horse ride, you are guaranteed to experience the restoration of your soul!

Take a drive to the nearby Camdeboo Mountains for majestic views...visit one of the many farms for a cup of tea and a light lunch.
