Xplorio Headquarters

At Xplorio we believe in the power of community and as such we like to shine the light on some of our community members. Here are 5 great bsuinesses to visit on your next trip to Riviersonderend:

Biltong Sonderend

Located in the Main Road, you won’t be able to miss this brightly coloured shop and its bold signs. Venture inside and find a selection of quality, locally produced biltong and meats. This is the perfect stop for a snack on the road or during the rugby game on Saturday and better yet for that true South African braai with your mates.

Vn’ Desden

Vn’Desden has an exceptional confectionery and many a mouth-watering jam and preserve to choose from. Stop by this ‘Original Pies Shop’ on your visit to Riviersonderend for great freshly made products. Here the owner, Petro’s famous original recipe pies are also made with tender love and care.

Jongenskloof Country Retreat

Situated against the backdrop of the Riviersonderend Nature Reserve, this retreat offers a beautiful and earthly tented camp on the banks of a mountain stream. The venue also plays host to some of the popular events hosted in the town such as Vortex and Circle of Dreams.

The Padloper Coffee Shop

Welcome to the vibrant coffee shop in the centre of Riviersonderend. With a menu full of delicious breakfast, toasted sandwiched, milkshakes and other beverages and light meals, this is definitely a great stop before you head out to explore for the day. The shop also holds locally produced and sourced arts, crafts, preserves, honey and much more.

Ubuntu Crafters

Ubuntu Crafters is a community based NPO that teaches craft skills to the unemployed people of Riviersonderend. Aimed at creating self-employment opportunities, the organisation creates and sells beautiful, handmade goods at their shop like coat hangers, shelves, bookcases, handbags, purses and many more!
