Barely an hour and a half's drive from Cape Town lies the historic country town of Tulbagh, nestling in an exceptionally beautiful valley surrounded by majestic mountains.
With heritage and natural beauty, award-winning winemakers, a theatre to entertain, a chocolatier, accommodation and restaurants to suit every taste - the question is actually: "Why Not?"
On the 29th September 1969, the quietness of night was shattered at 22h05 by tremendous explosive sounds followed by a gigantic roaring, rumbling noise rolling forward like the waves of a stormy sea. Stupefied people rushed outside over broken glass and fallen plaster. The mountains surrounding Tulbagh resembled a city of lights as falling rocks acted like flints on the tinder-dry vegetation and started fires.
