Info about Barrydale

barrydaleBarrydale is situated between two extremes. On the one side is the beautiful and fertile Tradouw Valley and on the other side you are faced with the stark and semi-arid Klein Karoo. These striking contrasts are experienced in a distance of 10km. Two scenic drives will bring you to Barrydale.

The N2 through Caledon and bypassing Swellendam, turning off onto the R324 after Buffelsjags via the Tradouws Pass.

For the lovers of nature Barrydale offers unsurpassed vistas of mountains. Hills and valleys are covered in flowers during spring and summer.

Pleasant walks along footpaths in the semi-arid Klein Karoo to more adventurous climbs in the foothills of the Langeberg Mountain will take the hiker to places of beauty and tranquility. With an annual rainfall of 300mm it seems as if the sun is always shining and temperatures of 35C or even higher is very common in the middle of summer.
