Somerset East was originally established as a frontier town on the Eastern Frontier, being a frontier town you could say they have always been up to their necks in adventure.
The Boschberg area in which the town was established is perfect for hiking, fishing, mountain biking and other outdoor adventure activities that the Eastern Cape is slowly becoming known for.
As adventure travel spreads through South Africa, Somerset East is determined not to stay behind in this race.
The Great Karoo has always been one of my favourite destinations when searching for adventure in South Africa. So when you are next looking for a starting point for an adventure, why not choose Somerset East. Trout Fishing in the area is extremely good and some of the hiking trails will take you through beautiful valleys that you did not expect to find in the Karoo.
So when you are next in the Eastern Cape make sure you plan a stop in Somerset East for some great adventures.
