on our way to Jeffrey's Bay

Hi all,

We are on our way to Jeffrey;s Bay for a holiday in Dec. We are passing through towns such as Graaf-Reinet, Jansenville & Uitenhage. We would like to stop at these places for at least 1 hour and would like to hear what yoou regard as "must see's" and "must taste's" (best of local things) - we are very exited about our trip and would not want to miss anything- Most interested in the best place to buy Karoo lamb and biltong/droe wors on this route. We are planning to stock up fwell on the latter. Thank you for all your expert advice & well done for your contribution to the best travel site around :-) l** let me hear what you think***

Graaf-Reinet definitely more than an hour. Valley of Desolation is a must and Reinet House is worth a visit. You should go to the Drosdty Hotel for a drink, as it is a museum in itself. The museum on the high street is dull.

Jansenville is tiny. Dont blink, you will miss it. There is a farm stall just to the North of the town that sold superb biltong a few years ago. I haven't stopped there in a while so not sure if it is still as good. The best biltong is Kudu. But it is a but it is out of hunting season now. The butcher on the main street (only street?) is supposed to be very good.

Uitenhage - hmmmmmmm

Uitenhage: no seriously, there is absolutely nothing there for you (unless you wish to view large amounts of newly built car lots); skip it 100%. Graaf Reinet is bar far the most touristy/scenic/historic. The rest, well, just carry on going. Are you venturing anywhere near Nieu Bethestda? Well thats a goodie - visit the Owl House if you can.
