“Sunday meander with family from Port Elizabeth”

Van Gaalen Kaasmakerij
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 April 2018

We took a Sunday drive on the Magaliesberg Meander and stopped to experience their cheese which they are renowned for. Their cheeses are par for the course, some spicy and some bland. They offer take away purchases with other home made items for sale. there is a garden setting which is pleasant.

What an amazing spot go stop and recharge! With its quaint shop, lovely cheese platters, chilled bubbly and stunning surroundings, Van Gaalen is a must-see for anyone in the area. Mathias is one if the friendliest servers I have ever had and the food was great. Can't wait to try a picnic next to the river!

It’s a lovely Sunday morning drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, then you are out in the bush under the towering Magaliesberg. Service is good, choice limited but includes good salads and a cheesy burger, then a meander through the creamery displays a string Dutch influence from salty licorice to special cookies. Great Birding around the fame but it lost a star for keeping magnificent Blue Cranes in a cage, albeit a large one.

We did the 12km River Hiking trail and ended up crossing the Skeerpoort river on a floating bridge! The farm itself is in beautiful surroundings with ample space to enjoy a picnic afterwards - or a restaurant menu. The farm shop sells cheese, wine and sweets. The Greek church is next on my menu!

Van Gaalen is a cheese farm near the Hartebeestpoort dam (Skeerpoort area) making traditional dutch cheeses. You can taste and buy many different types. There is a shpop selling Dutch delicacies and a good restaurant.
