We hadn't been to Prince Albert before but it turned out to be a great surprise. Saxe-Coburg is a lovely guest house run by the very friendly Dick and Regina. We had the pool suite which was extremely spacious and very peaceful. 3 days weren't really enough in this gem of a Karoo town. It was a joy to walk around with everyone passing the time of day-a lovely atmosphere. There were many houses with interesting traditional architecture and it was worth a town walk just to see the decorated waste bins!
We had a 'once in every 5 year' storm whilst we were there and the main road became a river as there are no storm drains. The huge garden to Saxe-Coburg was like a giant paddling pool. made even more impressive as Dick had flooded the garden the same day by emptying his water tank!
Fruit farms,wine estates, the incredible Swartberg pass coupled with wonderful Karoo scenery make this place a must if you never visited before.
