Draaikrans…Also situated on Noorspoort and in walking distance from the Main Homestead, is Draaikrans. A rock formation which is over 60m high and over a million years old. It was formed when the Karoo was still at the bottom of the Algoa Sea and high water temperature allowed the rock to become soft and pliable. As the earth’s plates moved, so it pushed the rock upwards to form what is today known as Draaikrans.
