Koringberg Swartland West Coast South Africa


Off the N7 tucked between the towns of Moorresburg and Piketberg nestles the quiet hamlet of Koringberg. Originally called Warrens Camp it changed its name when the community broke away from the Dutch Reformed church in the neighbouring towns of Moorreesburg and Hopefield.
This hidden gem  has a pace reminiscent of gentler times. No malls, commercial stores. No traffic lights (there are stop street signs). Beautifully restored homes dating in the early 1900´s. Smiling faces and a hello from the locals as you drive by reminds you of old fashioned values lost in the city.
Koringberg comes abuzz with activity during the MTB Race and Quad bike Challenge
There is also the Bread festival (Brood Fees meaning Bread Festival) held in the Kerk Saal (Church Hall)

The indigenous Rhenosterveld to be found in the Swartland has many varieties of plants which cannot be found in other regions in the Cape. In spring the fields come to life with colours and smells to brighten any day.
