Goedverwacht and Wittewater

Established in 1881 as a Moravian Mission with a fascinating slaving history. Try the Peerboom (Pear Tree) hiking rail or picnic on the outskirts of the town.


Goedverwacht (high expectations) is located near Piketberg established in 1888 as a Moravian mission.

The town lies in a fertile valley with produce from organic farming practiced occasionally sold at the mission station. The Goedverwacht Snoek & Patatfees is an annual event held in celebration of the survivors of Goedverwacht.

Wittewater was established in 1857 by German Moravian missionaries. The town’s characteristic thatched houses were built for missionaries who were unable to stay in Goedverwacht.
