Pilgrim’s Rest is an interesting village to visit. The village is tucked away in the mountains and reached via a winding road through unspoiled wilderness. Pilgrim’s Rest is one of few towns in South Africa that has kept its historical legacy completely intact. Its golden past is captured within the old buildings that line the village’s solitary street. In this enchanting village visitors will be transported back to the bygone gold mining era of the 1800’s, unearthing spellbinding pieces of history at every turn. An admission ticket from the information centre gains you access to a variety of museums, which showcase everything from untouched late Victorian households to antique cars.
