What is there to do in the area?

There are lots of attractions in and around Bethlehem.

Bethlehem is the perfect location for a weekend breakaway, only 25 km from the quaint village of Clarens where you will be spoilt for choice with a host of galleries, craft shops and restaurants to explore, while the more adventurous in the family can indulge themselves in the many outdoor pursuits on offer.


About 40km from Bethlehem you will find the Golden Gate National Park. The dramatic sandstone rock formations are the defining feature of Golden Gate. Named after two towering, almost perpendicular, rock formations that face each other and divided by a valley, Golden Gate National Park is a photographers paradise. Hiking trails, afford the opportunity of coming across some of the wildlife which include the black wildebeest, blesbok, springbok and eland. The rare bearded vulture, uncommon bald ibis and black eagle are just some of the highlights for bird watchers.


Bethlehem is also the perfect overnight stop between Cape Town and Durban.
