Health

Graaff-Reinet, surrounded by Camdeboo National Park, is classified as a malaria-free area. It is, however, recommended that guests contact their local travel clinic for advice on the necessary precautionary measures for visits to this region.

Get to Know Your City

Nestled in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, Graaff-Reinet is the country’s fourth oldest magisterial district. It is home to over 220 heritage sites, including various houses, buildings and farms, which reveal the town’s journey through time. The town is situated within the Great Karoo and is thus surrounded by natural beauty, rich in fauna and flora.

Graaff-Reinet experiences little rainfall as the Great Karoo is considered a semi-desert region. Arid air and cloudless skies are typical of this area, as are great heat and frosts. Daytime is typically warm, while nighttime and early mornings can become cool, even in summer months. This climate results in a very particular landscape, dotted with xerophytic vegetation.
