We are your go-to travel directory when trying to find accommodation in De Aar, the Northern Cape and the rest of South Africa. We have committed ourselves to finding accommodation that suits your needs and have gathered information about some of the highlights encapsulating the small town. Any traveller can look forward to a huge number of things to see and do and, most importantly, look forward to the accommodation De Aar has to offer.

De Aar is best known for being the second largest rail junction in South Africa. Interestingly enough, the town's title, meaning artery in English, is derived from the underground canal found in the area, but can also be closely tied to the railway junction which experiences high levels of traffic on a daily basis. With many trains travelling from Zimbabwe, Namibia, the Northern provinces, as well as the Eastern and Western Cape, you can savour your journey to the town via train.

It's not all about the junction though. The town is also home to stunning Khoisan rock paintings that you can view on farms such as Brandfontein, Nooitgedacht and Damfontein. Your choice to stay in accommodation in De Aar will bring you that much closer to experiencing some of the activities and sites on offer in the Northern Cape, including feminist writer, Olive Shriner's home which has been transformed into a cafe and museum. Other attractions and activities to look forward to include the Garden of Remembrance (a tribute to British soldiers killed in the Anglo-Boer war), paragliding and a world famous weather station.

When selecting De Aar accommodation, you will be spoiled for choice, with accommodation on offer ranging from guesthouses, lodges and hotels. The quality of service is tip-top and is attributed to the town being small and quaint.

Take your time to explore our selection of accommodation in De Aar and get ready to discover it in all its grandeur.
