Albertinia Tailormade Holidays

Albertinia is between the Langeberg Mountains in the north and the Indian Ocean in the south, on South Africa’s Garden Route.

The town and surrounds offer an eclectic mix of attractions and activities, including a South African game drive experience, in search of the big five in Albertinia. Set against the backdrop of the majestic Langeberg mountains, a malaria-free, private game reserve is home to an abundance of animal and bird life including the big five.

There is good bird watching opportunities along the banks of the Gourits River and you can also view the unique Cape fynbos, of which more than 8500 species can be found along South Africa’s Cape coast. A great place for viewing is along the Dunes Country Route which snakes through the Canca Valley.

Aloe ferox is today a major export product of this area. The leaves are collected during the winter and drained of their bitter-tasting sap, then boiled to form a concentrated product. This area is one of the two principal sources of aloe sap concentrate, the other being the West Indies. A variety of quality wines are LSO produced in the area.

Albertinia was founded by the Dutch Reformed Church. In 1908 a big diamond was discovered at nearby Aasvoëlberg—literally Vulture Mountain—but no further finds were recorded. The town became known for its ochre and kaolin mines. The mining of red and yellow ochre started in 1925 by W.R. van As. Today it is the principal source of ochre in South Africa.
