Things To Do



Somerset East is referred to as a small town of biltong, cranes and fine cuisine. Although the town is perhaps best known for its annual Biltong Festival, it offers more than South Africa’s favorite snack. There is an attractive golf course with a stream running through it, 4×4 trails on surrounding farms, and an 11km mountain drive offers spectacular views.
