uniondale, western cape, south africa
Uniondale, a small town in the Little Karoo, South Africa, came about by the joining of two towns (Hopedale & Lyon) in 1856.

Initially known for its wagon building and ostrich feather industries, which later waned and left a quaint farming town. Uniondale lies next to the Langkloof and is today primarily a sheep, goat, seed and apple farming community.

To the tourist it offers a relaxing stay in comfortable guesthouses and self catering farm cottages away from the crowds.

A variety of activities are on offer in the region such as scenic drives, 4x4 trails, guest farms, agri tourism, hiking trails, game viewing excursions and remnants of a rich history.

Near De Hoop, just outside Uniondale, there are a number of sites where san rock art can be viewed and also Anglo Boer War battlefields and forts.

Concession hunting is available on some of the farms in the area.

Uniondale is ideally situated to form part of circular tourist routes that include destinations such as Oudtshoorn, Baviaanskloof, Port Elizabeth, Knysna and George. It is also at the end or start of the popular Route 62 and adjacent to the Langkloof known for it's fruit as well as indigenous flora farms.

Uniondale is linked to Knysna and Plettenberg Bay (a mere 85km away) by the stunningly beautiful Prince Alfred's Pass. The the pass was designed and built by Thomas Baines and still has the original hand packed stone retaining walls.

The Uniondale Tourism Office is located at the old Royal Hotel In Voortrekker Street , the main road of Uniondale, South Africa. Visit the Uniondale Website for more details.
