Calvinia, Hantam Karoo

Calvinia lies at the foot of the Hantam Mountains and is locally known for its annual meat festival, the ever-popular "Calvinia Vleis Fees". In addition to delicious portions of lamb and mutton, the town offers tourists all the appeals of a bygone era combined with modern conveniences. An establishment where tourists might simultaneously get a taste of Calvinia's past, present and cuisine is the Hantam Huis. Built in 1854 and recently restored, this beautiful old Cape Dutch building doubles as a museum and restaurant, serving only the choicest of traditional Hantam dishes to hungry tourists. Those eager for a 'taste' of the Hantam itself can visit the Akkerendam Nature Reserve, situated north of town. Alternatively there is also the Calvinia Museum with its many cultural-historical displays aimed specifically at teaching tourists more about "Life in the Hantam".
