Geography and History

Chrissiesmeer holds South Africa’s largest freshwater lake.  There are around 270 lakes and pans located within 20km of the village. The largest lake is named Lake Chrissie, after President M. W. Pretorius', daughter Christina. 

Chrissiesmeer is filled with history, with many historical buildings within this town.  Many of these buildings are still utilised today and can also be visited.

Accommodation

Chrissiesmeer has a range of accommodation options available from Bed and Breakfasts, Self Catering units and Guest Houses.

Activities

Chrissiesmeer, is inundated with birds, butterflies and frogs.  The bird life is varied and beautiful – Blue Cranes, Red-winged Francolins, Chestnut-banded Plovers and the elusive Red-chested Flufftail, have all been spotted here. These sparkling lakes entice over 20 000 flamingos every year and is quite an experience to be a part of!

An interesting and exciting activity to take part in, in this town is the annual Frogging Festival! Each year thousands of visitors and residents put their boots and raincoats on and scramble around in the mud trying to catch as many frogs as they can.

There are sandstone bridges and ruins along the countryside that can be viewed, some of which have interesting San rock paintings and engravings.

Another annual activity is the re-enactment of the Battle of Chrissiesmeer. Hundreds of enthusiasts dress up in the appropriate Imperial British and Republican Boer uniforms, and begin staging battles across the countryside.

For the more water-orientated visitor, the many surrounding lakes allow for other activities ranging from fishing to the various water sports.

Tourists to the region could also do horse treking, mountain biking and hiking.
