Information and history

ID #4965

De Rust, Meiringspoort, Karoo, Western Cape.

At the foot of the Swartberg Mountains near the entrance to Meiringspoort.  In the evenings, when the last rays of sun disappeared behind the curious red koppies, transport riders would draw their wagons close to the river to guard against wild animals.  Strangers never lacked for hospitality and pleasure in De Rust. The sweet wine, lamb and dried fruit from nearby farms saw to that.  To while away the time and to chase away ghosts, De Rust became known for its young women who could dance like angels. These days when you stroll down the sedate streets the town seems steeped in rest. But remember …still waters run deep.
