Wolwefontein Village

port elizabeth

Wolwefontein is a village in the Eastern Cape that has retained much of its old-fashioned charm. It is situated along the R75, on the border of the scrubby Karoo. It is between Uitenhage (in Nelson Mandela Bay) and Jansenville.

 

Nearby towns and popular tourist attractions include:

Dessie’s

Dessie Gourmet Burger

Although having been around for some time, Dessie’s has continued to evolve; delighting the senses and giving the patrons of Port Elizabeth something really special every time they visit. The  secret to their success is, undoubtedly, the fresh flavours, the enormous variety on the menu, the distinctly healthy options available and the setting in which diners are made to feel comfortable, serene and a little pampered.

 

The first Dessie’s was established at the Bloomingdales Centre between ninth and tenth avenues, Walmer. A bubbling water feature, lush garden and open, airy restaurant area makes this an irresistible spot for a languorous breakfast, business lunch or a glass of wine with old friends. The service is efficient and friendly, which always makes coming here that much more enjoyable. This restaurant is large and vibrant, but retains an elegant charm with old-fashioned features.

The Friendly N6

Tiffindell Ski Resort

Known as the Friendly N6, this motorway transports visitors to another world – one of untouched beauty and out-of-the-way intrigue. There are a number of towns, natural gems and fun activities along the way, many of which immerse the N6 travellers into the real wonders of South Africa.

 

Outdoor activities are particularly popular along this route, since it is so varied and spectacular. The most popular of these include fly-fishing in cold trout streams, hiking, abseiling, horse riding, cycling, and even skiing at Tiffindell (the only ski resort in all of Southern Africa). Those who appreciate culture cannot miss the historical towns of Aliwal North, Rhodes and Lady Grey. Aliwal North is also home to hot springs, which are just what the doctor ordered for tired travellers escaping the chaos of city living. Lady Grey also boasts fossil trails that tell the story of humankind generations back. Read more
