About

Cozi Corner is run with the kind of friendly service that makes its name highly appropriate. The owners make sure guests are warmly welcomed into this comfortable self-catering establishment before affording them the privacy to relax in the large rooms.

Considering that the light and tranquil carpeted rooms are equipped with luxuries such as percale linen, safes, free wireless internet, air-conditioners, gas heaters, ceiling fans and electric blankets, Cozi Corner offers the best value for money accommodation to be found anywhere.

Two rooms sleep two people in a choice of either double or twin beds, with these rooms featuring en-suite showers. Unlike many accommodation establishments, the large LCD televisions offer the full range of satellite channels, allowing guests to check in on the happenings of the outside world after a day discovering the delights of the Queenstown area.

One of the three-sleeper rooms has an en-suite shower, with the other containing both a bath and shower. The spacious family unit can accommodate a family of five in King-size or twin beds and a sleeper couch, and has a dining and seating area. In both the three-sleeper and family units, a limited range of satellite television channels is available.

The kitchens in each room have stylish black and white finishes and are well equipped for self-catering, comprising fridges, oven tops and microwaves.

Views of the vibrant garden, with its inviting swimming pool and braai facilities, add to the peaceful atmosphere of the guest house, while comfortable outdoor seating and undercover verandahs are ideal for soaking up the sights and smells of the garden.

Cozi Corner is centrally located in Queenstown, which is best known for its friendly locals, balmy climate and the colourful roses that adorn the large gardens and open spaces in town. The town is shadowed by the spectacular Hangklip Mountain and hikers can enjoy a variety of trails in the area.

Berry Reservoir is a haven for picnickers, walkers and fishermen, while up in the hills, the Bonkolo Dam is used for recreation and watersports. Other sporting attractions in and around the town include mountain biking, horse riding, a golf course and superb fly-fishing for some trophy trout.

The Lawrence de Lange Game Reserve, located on the slopes of the Madeira Mountain, is home to a variety of birdlife, fauna and game, including buffalo and rhinoceros, and provides a unique bird’s eye view of Queenstown.

To experience a slice of history, stop off at Town Hall and the Frontier Museum, or visit Queen’s College, which is one of the oldest schools in South Africa and has been declared a national monument. This beautiful and esteemed school features attractive creepers on the buildings and has produced many national sportsmen and eminent South African figures.

This pretty town, and Cozi Corner, are ideal stopover points for guests travelling to the Wild Coast or the Karoo Heartland.

Friendly N6

Eastern Cape

About

The Friendly N6 route runs between Bloemfontein and East London, connecting the provinces of the Free State and the Eastern Cape. Aliwal North is at the border of the 2 provinces.

South Africa is famous for horizons that stretch for kilometres, so wide open spaces and endless skies are a traveller’s constant companions on the N6. The route takes one through about 600km of peaceful, diverse and beautiful land, giving one a sense of just how vast the country really is.

The N6’s attractions include everything from sea to snow, interspersed with charming towns. These are only slightly off the beaten highway, and are intriguing and pleasant places to explore. In the Free State, Bethulie and Zastron are within easy travelling distance of the N6, while Reddersburg, Smithfield and Rouxville are main stops along the route.

In the Eastern Cape the towns of Dordrecht, Molteno, Elliot, Rhodes, Burgersdorp, Barkly East and Lady Grey are all worthwhile diversions for curious travellers with time on their hands. For those sticking to the highway, Aliwal North, Jamestown, Queenstown, Cathcart and Stutterheim are along the route. These provide a sufficient diversity of interests and activities for guests. The highway is also relatively close to the Gariep Dam, Oviston and Hogsback Nature Reserves.

Sprawling sheep farms are probably the most obvious and frequent feature of the landscape, but the area is rich in cultural significance and interest. 

Apart from San (or Bushman) history and rock art, there are also interesting museums and art galleries, and fine local arts and crafts. The route’s proximity to the mountain kingdom of Lesotho means that Basotho culture is an important and unique influence on the culture of the area. Xhosa culture is proudly and strongly entrenched in the Eastern Cape.

The hills and towns of this area were witness to the Great Trek. This was the migration of the ‘Trekboers’ from the Eastern Cape across the Gariep River, (previously the Orange River) further into the central interior. It is often mentioned as an example of Afrikaner rebellion, perseverance and endurance. 

This same Afrikaner resilience cost Britain an unanticipated £190 million in the South African (or Anglo-Boer) War, which is commemorated at many sites and towns along the N6 route. 

Travelling south to East London from Aliwal North, tourists are afforded a majestic view of the Maluti mountains of Lesotho, as well as a sample of the Great Karoo in Stutterheim and Queenstown. East London itself is a lovely city which really lives up to the ‘friendly’ N6 brand. It has some interesting tangible links to prehistory: the East London Museum displays the last remaining dodo egg, as well as the body of a coelacanth, one of the oldest species on the planet. This fish was thought to be extinct until one was found alive on a fishing boat in the East London harbour in 1938.

Look out for

Relax and rejuvenate in Aliwal North’s hot springs and appreciate its beautiful old buildings. 

The Kologha Forest and the Kubisi Indigenous State Forests are less than 10km from Stutterheim. Large swathes of ancient indigenous forest are home to yellowwoods, ironwoods, white stinkwoods, Cape holly and Cape chestnuts with montane grassland cresting the slopes. Six well-marked forest trails, from 3-17km long, start and end at the Kologha Picnic site. They lead to waterfalls and good trout fishing and birdwatching spots. Rare birds found here include the endangered Cape parrot, grey-crowned crane and white-starred robin.  Mountain bik­ing and horse rid­ing are allowed on certain trails. Maps are avail­able at the forest kiosk. 

The Thomas River Historical Village is in the Amathole mountain region on the 31 000ha Thomas River Conservancy between Stutterheim and Cathcart on the N6 highway.  The area was named after Thomas Bentley, a deserter from the Van Der Kemps Missionary who was shot dead with an arrow while crossing the river. The conservancy offers a variety of outdoor activities including hunting, hiking, rock art talks and trails, fishing, birding, and paintball. The village dates back to the 1870s, has a popular restaurant and houses museums themed on wagons, rock art, pubs and vintage motor cars.

Mgwali Cultural Village near Stutterheim showcases Xhosa culture, with crafts and traditional food on sale. 

Tiffindell Ski and Alpine Resortnear the picturesque village of Rhodes is South Africa’s only ski resort. It offers snow adventures on the slopes of Ben McDhui, the tallest mountain in the Eastern Cape. 

Lady Grey and Cathcart are quaint, peaceful towns to visit. There is a Cape vulture sanctuary 12km from Lady Grey at the Karringmelkspruit gorge. Cathcart is known for its wildflowers, San rock art, excellent hang-gliding launch sites, fishing, birdwatching and adventure activities. 

Malaria-free game viewing is possible at the Lawrence De Lange Nature and the Longhill Nature Reserve near Queenstown, as well as at Tsolwana Game Reserve near Tarkastad. Big 5 game viewing is possible at the Mpongo and Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserves, both within 35km of East London. 

At the N6 route’s end, East London, visit the Python Park and Lion Park, the Queen’s Park Zoo, the East London museum and the aquarium. Enjoy the shopping, restaurants and, of course, surf the waves. The Calgary Transport Museum (5km north of East London on the N6) has a quaint collection of carts, wagons and buggies. It is open daily from 09h00 to 16h30.
