The mountain known as the Koringberg rises like a plinth out of golden or green wheatfields. The village, almost untouched by modern life, nestles below it and is home to many artists and crafters. It lies 116km from Cape Town, 6km off the N7 to Namibia.
Originally known as Warren's Camp, after the resident engineer who was responsible for laying the railway line in the early 19th century, Koringberg is a tranquil little village where guinea fowls, dikkoppe and small buck can still be found in abundance. The Autshumao (Herrie die Strandloper) fountain can still be seen and will be developed as a tourist attraction. A foot path up the mountain offers a breathtaking view stretching - on a clear day - as far as Table Mountain.
The area also boasts two well-known grapefarms and a Hackney Studfarm owning both the champion mare and stallion in SA. The nearby Misverstanddam also offers all kinds of watersports.

I had the most wonderful weekend and Misverstand dam recently. Truely a great water sports area. Nice for jetskiing, skiing, fishing etc. You obviously have to bring your own equipment, but the little houses can be rented on the water etc and you can buy more gas there for your boat or jetski, it's really great.
