Cimate and topography

When most of the low lying Karoo plains are baking hot, the mountain air is cool and refreshing. Temperatures hardly ever rise above 34 degrees, and the nights cool off, ensuring a good night’s rest. In winter temperatures can drop to -8 during the night, but with the warm Karoo sun, one can have lunch outside in temperatures between 12 and 20 degrees.

Day trips in area

Sneeuberg Private Game Reserve is surrounded by three historical towns – It is 77 km from Graaff Reinet, 35 km from Nieuw Bethesda and 40 km from Middelburg. These towns offer unique experiences and can make great day trips or stopovers.
