Services: South Africa’s unique heritage is not only captured in our buildings and monuments, but is also reflected in our soil, captured in our people and imprinted in the variety of our fauna and flora that flourishes in abundance against breathtaking landscapes.
The Eastern Cape primarily lends itself as a rich and diverse natural playground, having the dramatic Karoo to one side, the magnificent Sunshine Coast to the other, the largest malaria-free big seven game reserve The Greater Addo National Park, the world heritage site “Baviaanskloof”, as well as the many settlers towns with their authentic stories.
Kirkwood, set on the banks of the Sundays River, is best known for its citrus industry, Jansenville has its Mohair and Ostrich farming, Graaff- Reinet with its ornate settler buildings and Valley of Desolation and the Owl House in Nieu Bethesda are but a few amongst many of these unspoiled, under-commercialized sites in the Eastern Cape, where a short visit treks us back in time to appreciate and embrace our rich history and culture.
In order to share and experience this heritage with our guests, “Heritage Trails” offer a variety of weekend getaways, tours, day trips, functions and events to cater for all. Along with many popular set programs, we also welcome our guests to design tailor-made packages that best suite their need, plans and budgets.
Showcasing some of the lesser known "off the beaten track" destinations in and around the Karoo Heartland and Sunshine Coast, we offer a combination of programs ranging from Guided Tours to Self-drive Programs, Beach & Bush Escapes, Dirt & Dust Adventures, featuring activities such as day and night Game Drives, Quad bike Trails, Horseback Safari rides, Archery and even a chance to experience Guided Walks, focused on viewing and experiencing the extraordinary endangered white rhino on foot.
Heritage Trails, as part of the upmarket hospitality group “Pegasus Hospitality and Marketing” enjoys the advantage of utilizing its own Tourism Graded four star properties, including a pristine private game reserve nestled in the Karoo Heartland, located on a historic trading route of the early settlers called Koffylaagte (Coffee Valley), and enjoys a unique advantage of being perfectly set at the centre of these Eastern Cape attractions.
