Located along the N1 between Cape Town and Johannesburg, Colesberg is set against the backdrop of the Karoo, a semi-desert blessed with a widespread diversity of fauna and flora. The magical Coleskop, one of the many kopjes surrounding the town, can be viewed from approximately 40km away, and as you approach it, it seems to never get any closer.
Once you have settled into your Colesberg accommodation, you may want to visit one of the town's national monuments such as the Colesberg-Kemper Museum. Relics and fossils that date back to the era of dinosaurs can be found on exhibit in the museum. Further exploration of the kopjes may have you stumbling upon Stone Age artefacts as well. As your accommodation in Colesberg is nestled in the Karoo, you have the prospect of viewing archaeological sites that hold the story of South Africa's early history.
Being in a semi-dessert doesn't mean you can't enjoy water sports, as the Gariep Dam holds approximately 5 953 cubic metres of water, drawing crowds of water sport fanatics from in and around the Karoo. The accommodation Colesberg has on offer is as visually appealing as the scenic locations surrounding the town.
