If you're a resident or even an annual visitor to Gansbaai, you’ve probably noticed a tortoise or two crossing the road...
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 businesses to visit on your next trip to Riviersonderend:
Khomeesdrif is a tree shaded, grassed caravan and camping site on the banks of the Riviersonderend River at the foothills of the Sonderend Mountains. There are 30 grassed sites as well as a newly added wooden cottage which can accommodate 6. The camp offers braai facilities and spotless ablution blocks which are solar powered and wheelchair friendly. Dogs and horses are welcome by prior arrangement.
The RSE (Riviersonderend) farm has opened its doors to all who enjoy the outdoors. The farm offers two circular routes that meander into foothills of the mountains facing sheer rock faces and rocky outcrops with rain forest in places. There is even something for the 4x2’ers to do. RSE 4x4 also holds a comfortable self-catering cottage which sleeps 6 and is nestled between the fynbos with plenty of birdlife and small buck. Enjoy a getaway with a kick at the foot of the Riviersonderend Mountain Range whether you enjoy 4x4 or hiking trails.
Started as an additional income for their biltong shop, Mari’s Fudge soon turned into a popular treat in the small town of Riviersonderend. Now with 6 ladies in employment, the small business makes their own condensed milk and produces over two tonnes of fudge a month. Supplying close to 250 shops, Mari’s Fudge has ventured into making coconut ice and will be making their own butter soon.
Welcome to Riviersonderend Primary School. A positive environment for young minds to learn and grow and experience, Riviersonderend Primary School is a good educational establishment for your little ones in Riviersonderend. And as their slogan reads: Werk en volhard. (Work and Persevere.)
Located on Voortrekker Road, the RSE Golf Club offers a 9-hole course with the backdrop of the Riviersonderend Mountain Range. The Club also serves as a venue for small to medium functions, conferences, banquets and weddings. Take a swing at life at the RSE Golf Club and see if you can spot a birdy while hitting one.
