Altes Landhaus is a convenient and centrally-situated base from which to explore the scenic attractions of the Little Karoo, and the natural beauty of the nearby Garden Route. 

A fascinating ostrich show farm, wildlife ranch and cheetah sanctuary, as well as the awe-inspiring Cango limestone caves are all within easy reach, while the spectacular Swartberg Pass offers magnificent views and a breathtaking journey to the old-world charm of Prince Albert village. The good things in life may be savoured in Calitzdorp, South Africa’s port wine capital, while the more adventurous at heart may prefer an exhilarating day trip into the remote and rugged Gamkaskloof valley. 

Beyond the great Outeniqua mountains, a mere 45-minute drive away, the tantalising beaches of the Wilderness beckon, with the picturesque towns of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay offering ample opportunity for holiday shopping, leisure adventure, forest walks and seaside sojourns. Returning via the historic town of Mossel Bay, the Robinson Pass gives glimpses of unspoilt mountain fynbos vegetation and myriad proteas in bloom. Renowned for its first-rate golf courses, the area provides sportsmen with varied challenges in spectacular surroundings.
