For those suffering from Cenosillicaphobia (the fear of an empty glass), a visit to Matjiesfontein should cause no further distress!
"It is curious, and to me very attractive this mixture of civilization & the most wild untamed freedom; the barren mountains & wild Karroo & the railway train."- Olive Schreiner, March 25th, 1890
Take a trip on the Old London Bus, let yourself be summoned to dinner by trumpet, soak up the history in the Transport or Victoriana museums, take in the uniqueness of the Little Karoo with veld walks, hikes and mountain bikes, visit the Boer War British Army remount encampment site (c.1900) nearby, play a game of tennis or Petanque, or simply relax, and read in the hotel's opulent lounges or by the residents only pool.
It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas at Matjiesfontein.
Let’s face it – everyone loves a good photo opportunity, and what better way to share your selfies, special moments or artistic expressions than on social media? Instagram in particular allows digital natives to curate content in ways that best express themselves using inspiration from their surroundings.
