The climate is superb with an extremely high sunshine index, spectacular night skies and pure clean air. The village is a well preserved gem, with water furrows and beautifully preserved Cape Dutch, Karoo and Victorian buildings – thirteen of which are listed National Monuments and there are a further five in the district, including the Swartberg Pass and Gamkaskloof, the so called “The Hell”.

Prince Albert Leesfees 2019
With so much world focus on global heating and the effects of climate change: fires in Brazil and floods in Indo-China and the Karoo experiencing a lengthy drought, the theme for the 2019 Leesfees: See things differently / Kyk met nuwe oë is most appropriate. Do we look around enough? Are we aware of our surroundings and the wonders we are in danger of losing? Come and explore these and other issues at the 8th Prince Albert Leesfees.
