The driving force behind the opening of this museum on 30 April 2004 was a small group of enthusiasts who realized the importance of preserving this town's history for the future generations.
The purpose of this museum is to show how past generations lived in this area. Therefore it is important to obtain antiques and memorabilia and preserve and maintain the exhibits.
This confirms the Albertinia and Albertinia's Museum's motto "rura mihi placent" we like the country life (lifestyle).
Visit the original Aloe Factory in Albertinia where you can watch a demostration of traditional aloe tapping. Find out more about cosmetic and wellness products, browse through the shop and buy an Aloe Ferox seeding. Enjoy a nice meal from the coffee shop.
Garden Route Game Lodge
One does not expect to find access to the big 5 on the Garden Route, usually associated with verdant, generous vegetation, forests and rivers rather than the bushveld necessary to sustain game.
But the Garden Route Game Lodge, with the Langeberg Mountains as its backdrop, provides a wonderful break from the monotony of a drive. Be warned though – you might want to stay for longer than a mere lunch stop as there is plenty to keep you occupied.
Family owned winery in the Garden Route. Jakkelsvlei is named after all the jackals seen in the mountains surrounding the farmland. Explore the unique, off the beaten track wine farm and experience true Southern Cape hospitality or just sit back and enjoy the fruits of this labour of love.
