In South Africa, there is an area in the Western Cape, between the ‘Swartland’ and the West Coast, that they call “Die Sandveld”. 

Although it is not the biggest producer of potatoes in SA, this region is famous for its potato production. 

However, the area in and around is very beautiful.  Places like Piketberg, Moorreesburg, Koringberg, and more, are especially beautiful during the wheat growing season.

Stop on the route during harvest season and watch the farmers as they harvest wheat.

If you’re traveling through this part of the region on your way to Clanwilliam, do support the businesses in the area.  And if you’re in the area during September months, keep an eye out for the “Moorreesburg Skou”.
