Van Ryhnspas is between Nieuwoudtville and Vanryhnsdorp in the Nama Karoo, South Africa. In bygone years the Vanryhnsdorp’s mountains were home to the San and many fine examples of the art of these Late Stone Age hunter-gatherers exist in several rock shelters.
The village of Nieuwoudtville, an isolated town, about 50km off the N7 and just over 300km north of Cape Town, is best known for its spring flowers. The town lies on the Bokkeveld Plateau where the Cape Fynbos meets the Hantam Karoo, Bushmenland and the Knersvlakte. It is a place where the experience of silence, space and stars contribute to a tranquil way of life.
