The Pleasure of Getting There
Port Alfred is very centrally situated about 1000km from Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. This creates an opportunity to start your holiday the moment you get into your car. You don’t have to get there in one day. If you are coming from Jo-burg, consider staying over at the Gariep Dam. This is the largest dam in South Africa and sits like a large emerald in the stark Karroo landscape. There is an abundance of accommodation to suit every taste and budget. If you are coming from Cape Town, you obviously have to pass through the stunning Garden Route. With iconic places en-route such as Wilderness, Knysna and Plet, you will be spoiled for choice for your stop-over. If you are coming from Durbs, you will pass through the Wild Coast region.
With existing places like Hole in the Wall, Mazeppa bay or Umgazi River bungalows on the way you will be tempted to stay over a night or two. Finally you will arrive at Green Fountain Farm Resort near to Port Alfred. You will enjoy a hearty welcome from our friendly team and a memorable holiday.
