Lying about two Hours' drive from Cape Town, Redelinghuys is known as the 'potato Capital', of the Sandveld. It lies on the R366 between Picketberg and Velorenvlei, North of Aurora and on route to Elands Bay, (if you like detours).

The Village itself is quaint and charming with beautiful scenery and, as with most Villages in South Africa, dominated by a magnificent Church on its main street, with plenty of Victorian Architecture (to satisfy your craving for sumptuous, historical surrounds!)

The Village started its life, as part of the Farm; 'Wittedrift'. Today, it is used mainly by those in search of time out, a sojourn in the Country and those who want to spend time at Velorenvlei Estuary, one of the largest natural Wetlands and a RAMSAR protected site.

From July through to October this part of the World is a floral tapestry to which Hikers and Nature Lovers, are drawn. Visit Redelinghuys, to see: the Dutch Reformed Church and Bell; the old Church; the Old Pastorate, which is now a guesthouse. 

It is a Village which lies among the Citrus, Vines, Vegetables and Potato Fields, (that provides an escape that City dwellers are after!)

 "Just about the only thing from which the Village seems to suffer is its ambiguity – not many people know about it – and there are many, who after discovering the little Village, are only too pleased that it remain this way!"-International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women, who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities!
