Our Towns

Bergrivier offers visitors a diverse experience from a long stretch of clear white beaches in Velddrif and Dwarskersbos on the Atlantic, to the rural hinterland hugged by mountains between Piketberg and Porterville. The towering mountain peaks of Piketberg and Porterville are adorned with ancient and intriguing rock formations and fynbos.

The hinterland is the region’s rural heartland – and is crisscrossed by wide dusty farm roads, wheat fields, and small Sandveld villages such as Redelinghuys, Aurora, and Eendekuil. The Sandveld, known for its arid landscape, in spring blooms into a kaleidoscope of colorful flowers.

Goedverwacht is a living landscape rich in culture and heritage. Here you can mingle with the locals; take in a bit of culture and stay overnight in their homes originally built by the Moravian Church in the 1960s.

A perfect hideaway, Bergrivier boasting luxury accommodation ranging from mountain cabins to seaside camping sites.

Join us on October 14th for an epic day of mountain biking at the Piketberg MTB Challenge hosted by Org De Rac.
