  • George is the sixth oldest town in South Africa, situated in the stunning Western Cape Province and is referred to as the Capital of the Southern Cape.
  • The majority of people in George are Afrikaans-speaking, but all Afrikaners can speak English, because English is a required subject at South African schools. Similarly, most English speaking people in South Africa can speak Afrikaans.
  • Much of the town is laid out in city-block fashion, east/west and north/south, making it very easy to find your way about.
  • George also has an extremely sophisticated infrastructure with banks, conference facilities, businesses, major shopping chains, transport and sporting facilities, yet retaining its small town and country atmosphere of peace and tranquillity.
  • George has many historical landmarks to be visited, like The SlaveTree, an ancient English Oak planted by Landdrost van Kervel.
