South Africa: Places to visit in 2010

Or you could pop over a little before World Cup year if you so desired. To be perfectly honest, once you read the first installment in this new 6000 miles… series, I think you’ll have trouble staying away.

So – number 1. The Fred Turner Windpump Museum in Loeriesfontein.

Loeriesfontein, a neighbouring town only 65km from Nieuwoudtville, hoasts a unique Windmill museum of which there are only two in the world – the other being in the U.S.A.

I’m always impressed by unique things of which there are only two. For me, that makes them even more special than those rather routine and ordinary unique things of which there are only one.

Stand by for more great places you can’t afford to miss on the South African tourist trail. For more, just follow the TOURISM TIPS category in the sidebar. Suggestions welcome.

  1. Ooh, a uniquish windmill museum. Don’t forget the giant pineapple, that is not to be missed!

  2. Oooohh… a windmill museum! I’ve always wanted to go to one of those… NOT!

    I think the mountain should be reason enough to visit… it does come with a gorgeous table-cloth after all!

  3. Helga Hansen » The football is the reason o visit. I just feel that the usual tourist haunts may well be overwhelmed.

    Po » The pineapple is a good one. Thanks.

  4. “Loeriesfontein, a neighbouring town only 65km from Nieuwoudtville, hoasts a unique Windmill museum of which there are only two in the world – the other being in the U.S.A.” Is it a “windpump” or “windmill” museum….surely there’s a big difference (and I think there’s more windmill museums in the Netherlands). Also, tell me more about hoasting…. 😉
