Besides sheep farming, the town offers other interesting attractions such as a steam engine graveyard and the Loganda pillars, used for astronomical calculations in the late 1880’s.
Our safari day tours are available for Loganda guests, to come and see the Big 5 (Lions, Leopards, Rhino, Elephant, Buffalo) that’s only 9km away from the Loganda Lodge.
To the north is the popular Kagga Kamma Reserve with ancient bushman painting sites which are 6000 years old. The nature reserve is also home to a variety of wildlife and bird species.
The Touws River area provides a very useful introduction to karoo endemics and does complement the better known Karoopoort area some 40km to the North. Birding is a popular activity here (namely; The Titbabbler, Fairy Flycatcher, White-throated Canary and The Black Eagle). You could target 80 birds on a summers’ day including 15 not found significantly closer to Cape Town!
Touws River which is situated on the national flower route, bursts into a kaleidescope of vivid Karoo flowers in the spring. Touws River is also home to the Cape’s famous Fynbos, succulent Karoo and rare renosterveld vegetation.
