Lockdown Tour in Napier

Napier is one of those small towns in South Africa one has to explore to find the hidden secrets. Except for some excellent eateries; stunning vistas in and around the village plus a few of the best wineries of South Africa (Yes: it’s true!!!) there are amongst others a craftsman who makes miniature working steam engines; a toy museum, a chess board maker; a military museum; potteries; a toy museum (the 92 yrs old owner still makes them) and a gallery. Some of these are only open ‘by appointment’ but if you ring the bell you can be sure of great hospitality. Oh … and there is amongst others also the largest sundial of South Africa and a ‘Voortrekkers Monument’ (ox wagon)….
