The picturesque village of Klaarstroom, situated at the foot of the Swartberg mountains. The town positioned at the Great Karoo entrance to Meiringspoort, a spectacular gorge through the Swartberg mountain range which links the Great Karoo and the Little Karoo (Klein Karoo).

Klaarstroom, meaning "clear stream", was established in the mid-19th century. It presented the first opportunity to farmers from deep in the Great Karoo, en route to the small port of Mossel Bay, to wash their precious cargo of wool in the clear mountain streams. A wool-washing facility was soon established. With the wool-washing facility having long since disappeared, time, technology, the railroad and modern highways passed Klaarstroom by.

Today the tiny inner village is hidden away from the nearby highway. It remains an historical snapshot of a Southern African Victorian village, sporting three churches, a Victorian police station, an old-world General Dealer Store and excellent examples of restored Victorian homesteads. The Anglican Church cemetery has two Anglo-Boer War graves - each with its own story.
