Naute Dam Reviews
Net na Naute Dam ligt Naute Kristall en gin disstilleerderij, overlijke gins en brandys om te proeven en te kopen. Aanrader Dadel Brandy. Ook goede stop voor koffie. more »Just after Naute Dam lies Naute Kristall and Gin disstilery, overable gins and Brandys to taste and buy. Recommended Date Brandy. Also good stop for coffee.
Zeker de moeite om te stoppen, vooral de noordelijke toer. Je krijgt er zelfs een kleine sossusvlei bovenop. more »Definitely worth stopping, especially the northern tour. You even get a small sossusvlei on top.
Good to see.
