Farm History

In this area with its long and rich history, Dr Frikkie Strauss and family, farm with cattle, sheep, rooibos tea and sutherlandia (kankerbos). The latter being in great demand due to its unique medicinal qualities.

The name, Traveller's Rest emanated from passing travellers who used to span out here next to the river to give water to their horses and oxen, as well as to rest, before tackling the very steep Pakhuis Pass to the West, or the dry Karoo to the North-East.  This was long before the self-catering cottages and restaurant were built.
