In the Amatole district of Eastern Cape lies a quaint and historical town, Fort Beaufort.
It is situated at the confluence of the Brak River and the Kat River and it is famous for the sulphur springs that occur very close to the town. Fort Beaufort was founded in 1822 as a mission station and holds a significant history of conflicts between the British and the native Xhosa people. A few miles from the mission station, a blockhouse was erected which now stands as a monument together with the Martello Tower.
Fort Beaufort is also located close to Grahamstown, Hogsback and East London if you are visiting one of the towns; a turn to Fort Beaufort is worth the while. 25 kilometers outside Fort Beaufort is the Fort Fordyce Nature Reserve en-route to Adelaide where you can discover distinct biodiversity as well as horse ranching that occurs in the area.
As a small town, accommodation in Fort Beaufort is offered accordingly but it will always ensure you of a time well-spent in the town. Fort Beaufort accommodation offers a fair amount of lovely bed and breakfasts and welcoming lodge, well-appointed for a pleasant stay.
