Welcome to Prince Albert
To many urban-dwelling South African people, Prince Albert – a charming village dating back to 1762 – represents an idyllic life in the Karoo. Victorian, art deco and traditional Karoo buildings rub shoulders in the pretty streets, their residents intent on preserving the town's architecture. Despite being surrounded by harsh country, the town is green and fertile (producing peaches, apricots, grapes and olives), thanks to the run-off from the mountain springs. It's something of a foodie town and there’s an Olive Festival each April.
