Cradock Tours and Travels
Divided by the powerful Great Fish River that runs through it, Cradock is a charming, quaint village with Victorian-era charm permeating from every street corner. From a historical standpoint, Cradock has born witness to much of South Africa's turbulent past. The Great Trek originated in this region and the ostrich boom, which provided farmers with a quality source of income because of its meat and leather, took place in this area. The land here is also drastically more fertile than other rural towns of this kind thanks to the water that has been diverted from the Orange River.Read More
