  • Nederduits Gereformeerde Kerk - Kareedouw, Western Region, Eastern Cape
Nederduits Gereformeerde Kerk - Kareedouw, Western Region, Eastern Cape  © Morné van Rooyen @ Wikipedia


Nestled between the picturesque Tsitsikamma and Zuuranys mountains, at the edge of the Tsitsikamma forest, lies the eastern cape town of Karredouw. The town was established in 1906 as a mission station for the Dutch reformed church, and gains its name from the Khois phrase meaning "path by the Kare trees". Karredouw lies approximately a hundred and thirty kilometers from Port Elizabeth, and serves as the gateway to both the Langkloof Mountains, and as the only southern entrance to the Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve.

The town owes its existence mainly to the farming and agricultural activites in the region which are dominated largely by forestry and fruit farms. The Langkloof Fruit region , between George and Port Elizabeth, includes the towns of Avontuur, Haarlem, Misgund, Louterwater, Krakeel, Joubertina, Kareedouw and Assegaaibos, and is second only to the Western Cape in terms of deciduous fruit production. Kareedouw is also home of the famous Rensilfier furniture factory, which manufactures high quality Black, Yellow, and Stinkwood fruniture. A statue of a woodcutter stands in the town, erected in memory of woodcutters, and serving as a reminder of the town's history of forestry.

The valley with its rows of fruit orchards, magnificent picturesques mountains and pristine perrenial mountain streams provide visitors with excellent photographic opportunities. The awe inspiring scenery of the region provide visitors with a variety of popular outdoor activities which include 4x4 rides through the Suurveld, Kouga and Baviaanskloof Wilderness areas, canoeing on the Kouga River, camping, hiking and horse trails, and guided motorcycle tours which travel along the well known Route 62 through the Little Karoo to Port Elizabeth. The tranquility of the region was so appealing to the late former Prime Minister of South Africa from 1966 to 1978, John Vorster, that he requested to be buried in the memorial garden next to the old stone Dutch Reformed Church.

The Khoi people who once lived in the region made a delicious honey beer that was called “karrie”, using a combination of honey, water and the roots of a particular succulent. It is in honur of this Khoi tradition that the annual Karrie Festival is held every March. Another feature which attracts visitors to the region is the Apple Express, which departs from Humerail Station in Port Elizabeth, and takes its passengers on a scenic ride westwards over the tallest narrow gauge railway bridge in the world, the Van Stadens Bridge (255 feet/ 78 m), and onwards to Loerie.
