The small, charming village of Rhodes has been restored to resemble the original village of more than a century ago. A wide range of activities are available in the area, such as fishing, Mountain biking, 4x4 routes, and horse riding. A trip to Naude’s Nek takes the visitor to the highest point (8600 feet above sea level), where one can, on a clear day, see the sea 170 kilometres away over the Transkei. During the winter months, the slopes of Ben Macdhui, 3001 metres above sea level, are covered in snow. Ski enthusiasts come from all over South Africa to ski the slopes of South Africa’s only ski resort, Tiffindell Ski Resort. There are various hiking and horse trails in the area and guides can be arranged at Rhodes Information Centre.
