Rural Tours is all about opening gates, doors and hearts to the hidden tourism gems of the Eastern Cape Highlands.
The Eastern Cape Highlands (Aliwal North, Barkly East, Bossies Laagte, Clanville, Dordrecht, Herschel, Floukraal, Lady Grey, Moshesh’s Ford, New England, Rhodes, Rossouw, Sterkspruit, Tiffindell and Wartrail) has a Treasure Chest of Tourism Attractions that are unknown to the Tourist. There are various reasons:
We are off the beaten track and the small number of visitors do not warrant the development of these into full blown organised tourism attractions with a compliment of staff and guides.
Many of our tourism gems are on private property which are inaccessible to the Tourist.
Some Tourism Attractions such as Rock Art, Fossils, Vulture sites etc. are sensitive and need to be protected from villains. For this reason we cannot put up signage or directions to these sites.
