Day trip to De Rust

A great day of fun and exploration neatly fitted into a 1-day trip.

Domein Doornkraal Padstal: Beautiful wines, a souvenir or two and a tasty snack for the road.

De Rustica: Olive oil tasting, tours and a few award-winning products to stock your pantry with.

Gift Shops: In true Karoo town fashion, De Rust has a multitude of beautiful little gift shops stocking everything bottled, pickled, homemade and handcrafted, where every item is uniquely created with care. Just take a stroll down the main road to start discovering all these little treasures.

Restaurants: If you fancy some traditional country cooking, you’ve come to the right place. De Rust Restaurants serve up hearty home-cooked meals, great local wines and a generous portion of big-hearted Karoo hospitality.

Klein Karoo Horse Adventures: Follow old jeep tracks and game paths on horseback through the foothills of the Swarterg Mountains and experience the beauty and wonder of the veld up close.​

Meiringspoort: The road leading through this magnificent natural gorge winds its way through huge rock formations and crosses a total of 25 drifts, each with its own name and interesting bit of history. Stop at one of the shaded picnic spots or hike up to the waterfall for a dip in the rock pools. But even great adventurers need a good night’s rest. Kleinplaas offers spacious 3-star chalets, fully-equipped with all you might need for a comfy stay and is only about 35km from De Rust.
