Joubertina

Joubertina

Joubertina lies between the Kouga and Baviaanskloof Mountain catchment areas in the north and the Tsitsikamma Mountain Range in the south. In 1807, the former Dutch Reformed Church Minister of Uniondale, Rev WA Joubert, established a Dutch Reformed rural community on the farm Langkloof. One of the conditions of the sale of the farm was that the consumption of any alcohol on the site was prohibited. This condition is still observed today.

History And Architecture

Dutch Reformed Church: The church dates back to 1911 and was the first building erected in Joubertina. Sandstone was used to build the church and the beautiful yellowwood interior admirably complements the graceful building style.

Kloof Hotel: The stylish Kloof Hotel once belonged to a descendant of Daniel Kritzinger, the original owner of the farm on which the town was built.

The Lutheran Missionary Monument: The old church with its thatched roof, the first church of the missionary settlement in Haarlem, is preserved here.

Miniature model cars: The Hotel Tavern boasts an interesting display of over a thousand model cars.
