This small missionary village is situated 28 km from Bitterfontein, tucked away between extraordinary granite formations. Rietpoort presents a real opportunity to escape the rigours of the modern lifestyle. Hitch a ride on a donkey-cart, enjoy a picnic of traditional cuisine and listen to the melodious sounds of the local choir singing traditional songs and, for a while at least, it is easy to forget the world beyond the boundaries of the village.
