Graaff-Reinet (Oct 2008)
In October 2008 we went to Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape of South Africa for my cousins wedding. We left George early on the Saturday morning and drove the 3 hours to Graaff-Reinet. We first went to the Acacia Guesthouse where we had rooms for the night.
The guesthouse was very nice. There were 4 rooms. The two rooms in front had twin beds, a small bathroom with a shower and coffee making facilities. The two rooms in the back are bigger with a small kitchen, bathroom and a double bed. After unpacking we went to explore. The guesthouse is close to town and we walked to the main road.
Graaff-Reinet was established in 1786 and is the fourth oldest town in South Africa. It was named after the governor of the Cape Colony, Cornelis Jacob van de Graaff and his wife whose maiden name was “Reynet”.
