One of the most unusual commercial developments in South Africa in recent years has been the development of the Welwitschia Country Market at the Damdoryn crossroads a kilometer from the dam wall at Hartbeespoort Dam.
Built under the shade of giant old trees the market evolved from the idea that small is neat and good.
Grouped around a charming and imaginative aviary - the delight of children of all ages- is a collection of forty wooden shops and a covered area housing a wide range of merchandise.
The brick paved streets of the village allow pleasant meandering through the stalls and shops, with places to sit and enjoy a rustic atmosphere. The market not only caters for the tourist trade but also offers local visitors a useful and refreshing different place to do some shopping. An attractive bush pub and a family restaurant, called Upperdeck, is also on the grounds plus Pick a Pancake and Country Griller offering a variety of light meals at excellent prices.
The market offers good parking and clean toilet facilities, a playground for children and additional entertainment on Sundays & all public holidays.
This venue is fun for the whole family.
