- 8 Henning Huizen Street, Mamre, Cape Town, 7347, Western Cape
The town of Mamre, which lies between Darling and Atlantis on the R307, about an hour outside of Cape Town via the R27 or N7, is, the site of a Moravian Mission Station, established by 2 Moravian missionaries known as Kohrhammer and Schmidt, in 1808. It was only in 1967 that the pretty double-ended church and adjacent parsonage became national monuments. The mission station village still stands, and the church is still used for services, which on any given Sunday, is packed to capacity. In the village there is a former bakery, a shop, the church offices, a couple of modern buildings, and a little lower down, the former mill next to what would have been a stream but today is a trickle. There are also a few 'hartbeeshuisies' or reed houses, all of them white-washed with thatched roofs. The streets, aside from Main Road which brings you into the village, are sand and you can wander around the village at your own will.
