Welcome to Prince Albert


It's also a great base to explore the mountains, either on foot, by mountain bike or, if it's just too hot for exertion, by driving the spectacular Swartberg and Meiringspoort Passes.

If you have your own transport, you can easily visit Prince Albert on a day trip from Oudtshoorn or even from the coast, but once you're here you're guaranteed to want to stay for a few days.
