Victoria West is in the heart of the Great Karoo, about 615km from Cape Town. The area boasts a fantastic variety of bird species for nature lovers with several trails, including the renowned evening walk which lends itself to a new experience and romance, especially if one is lucky enough to take advantage of the moon when full.
The Karoo is famous for our hunting facilities and a wide variety of sort after buck species. If hunting is not your sport, game viewing is available where unforgetable shots are substituted with a lens and binoculars. Bowling greens and tennis courts are available for those of you who are more interrested in social sports.
The main building of de Oude Scholen was built during 1891, during the historical Kimberley Mine diggings and served as an education facility for kids who’s parents were working on the dig. Being the first primary school in Victoria West, the building holds a vast history and an air of nostolgia within it’s foundations.
