The sleepy village of Wolwefontein lies on the road between Port Elizabeth and Graaff-Reinet and only exists because the railway line runs through it. Over the last few decades a lot of railway stations have closed down due to the decline of the railway system in South Africa but it seems that Wolwefontein is holding on for dear life. I pulled over onto its dusty streets for a quick look on the way to Graaff-Reinet the other day and discovered that the village actually has a little hotel that still operates. Perhaps it's time for me to do a bit of exploring around the Eastern Cape and discover more places like this. I think it would be a good idea to start right here and spend a night in this establishment with its wooden floors, old pub and fireplace.
