The area around Nottingham Road is very scenic with lush rolling grasslands. The Drakensberg Mountains are not that far away and can be seen in the distance.
Nearby is Fort Nottingham. In the 1800's the garrison here were kept busy trying to defend farmers flocks and herds from raids by the San people who had living on the lands for centuries before English colonization.
