Ask a dozen people what they know about Uniondale and you will get twelve different answers ...

To us locals Uniondale is the best place ever, and we love getting visitors share it with. We are proud of our Little Karoo agricultural dorpie. Here you will experience the sense of community and belonging that only happens in small towns like ours.

Agriculture is still very much part of the town, which is the central hub for employment, schools, hospitals and other community activities. Local farmers support the school and boarding house, churches and charity organisations. Farming includes sheep, angoras, seed and fruit farming which all employ a lot of people.

Visitors to the area are delighted with the wide open spaces, diversity, stunning scenery, magical flora and incredible geology.

Our historical buildings include seven national monuments.

The best way to experience Uniondale and surroundings is over a few days. Many travellers and holidaymakers use of the town and surrounds as a base for day trips. We are well known for our choice of quality accommodation including guesthouses, farm stays, self-catering cottages and camping sites.

In Uniondale itself you have a choice of places to eat, whether you just feel like a delicious snack, coffee and cake or a full meal.

Our unique Uniondale-style golf course has to be experienced. Tee off with great scenery around you, plus the odd Angora goat or springbok as spectators.

With more than 300km of dirt roads in the area, Uniondale is a destination in itself for mountain biking or cycling, bikes and offroad vehicles. More than 4,000 cyclists ride the 100km Karoo to Coast mountain bike race from Uniondale to Knysna through the Prince Alfred’s Pass.

Whether your thing is just chillin’, or getting out and about, there is so much to see and do in the Uniondale and Haarlem area.

Don’t just take our word for it – come and experience it for yourself.
