Calvinia Hantam Vleisfees - August 2011

Calvinia Hantam Vleisfees - August 2011

This year, 2011, is the 22nd Hantamvleisfees in Calvinia in the Great Karoo. The Hantamvleisfees is about a 400km drive from Cape Town and around the same distance from Upington. Calvinia is real sheep country and this one weekend a year the town and surrounding farmers celebrate the best of all red meat – good old Karoo Lamb.The winning recipe of the Hantamvleisfees is a simple one. Lots of local farmer associations offer all sorts of cuts of lamb, cooked in as many different ways as there are Boere Tannies. Throw in some good country entertainment by way of music and arena events and you have a festival! Accommodation in Calvinia and surrounding areas can be difficult to find so

book early. If you can't find anything on this or other websites try calling Lizette Lambrechts  on 083 355 8155
