Prince Albert & Elyolo

Prince Albert had its origins in 1762 when a loan farm named Kweeckvalleij (the valley of cultivation and plenty) was established in a green and fertile valley at the foot of the awesome Swartberg Mountains. Today, the town is one of the prettiest in the country - a place of great serenity and charm, with beautiful architecture, fascinating flora and fauna and great Karoo hospitality.
