Uniondale South Africa
The Little Karoo’s best kept secret, Uniondale on the R62, is to be found in a surprisingly green valley, surrounded by hills. The Kamanassie and Kouga mountains watch silently over this little farming town, and in the distance - the mighty Swartberg becomes the horizon.
Visitors to Uniondale are delighted with the diversity, stunning scenery, magical flora and incredible geology. Our beautiful historical buildings include seven national monuments. There is so much to see and do. Take a guided tour through the town, play a round of golf on our unique Uniondale style course, cycle the many dirt tracks or walk as far as your heart desires.
Visit our restaurants, coffee shops, and gift shops which also display work by local artists. Meet our local characters who will tell you wonderful stories about the town including tales of our ghosts.
Take a scenic drive along good gravel roads, go fishing and on a clear night the stars are spectacular.
The nearby farm stays are also fabulous. Whether your interest is hiking, mountain biking, fishing, birding, hunting, swimming in rock pools, admiring waterfalls, or just enjoying the sounds of silence you will love it here.
Uniondale is a popular cycling destination. This year more than 4,000 cyclists rode the 100km Karoo to Coast mountain bike race from Uniondale to Knysna through the Prince Alfred’s Pass.
