Geography and History
Three Sisters is a landmark along the N1 in the Karoo National Park and is situated about eighty kilometres to the northeast of Beaufort West. It is at the junction of the N1 and N12 national routes, and has become a popular stopping off place with the building of a Shell Ultra City there.
Three Sisters is named after the three prominent dolerite-topped koppies you see when you drive past.
Beautiful guest farms will welcome you with Karoo tranquillity and hospitality at its best.
There are plenty of game species to be seen around the area.
This small village in the Karoo might appear to be rather dull place to visit, but for the model train enthusiast, there is a true gem hidden away in the attic of an old farmhouse there. Owner Johan Hamman has over 600 metres of model train track laid out in the attic of his farm, with model trains from all over the world.
Farm style accommodation as well as guest lodges are available in the area. A stay on a farm or similar, in and around Three Sisters, promises gorgeous scenery, a welcome break, veld and mountains for hiking, typical Karoo hospitality and the promise of a home-reared lamb dinner of some description. A variety of accommodation facilities are available.
