This small town in the middle of the Karoo is a very convenient overnight spot. It is about 600km from Johannesburg and about 800km from Cape Town. It is here that (if travelling from Johannesburg) the N1 heads off to Cape Town and the N9 and N10 to George and Port Elizabeth respectively, so motorists need to be reasonably alert if they are to stay on the right road. It is about 550km to George and 450km to Port Elizabeth. There is an enormous range of overnight accommodation in the town, including some lovely, well preserved, Victorian-era cottages.
