Cradock at a glance
Permanent water diverted from the Orange River has given stability that many other rural areas lack in that the periodic devastating droughts are made less severe by the Lucerne and maize that is grown and that the farmers are able to produce winter grazing for their animals. The water has also enabled them to branch out into other farming enterprises such as dairy, ostrich and vegetable farming.
Our prosperity is also due to the far sightedness of the Cradock residents and the various sporting councils in promoting sport on a major scale. Cradock plays host to the great Hansa Powerade Fish River Canoe Marathon with over 1 000 paddlers every year, as well as prestige athletics events on a tartan track and there are also excellent cricket, rugby, golf and bowls facilities, as well as major tennis tournaments for young and old.
Cradock enjoys a healthy climate, with hot summers, bracing cold winters and a low rainfall. It is the lack of rain that provides the magnificent view of the stars at night and the glorious sun rises and sunsets one associates rather with a desert than a rich farming area.
The geographical position (Central to the Eastern Cape) which makes Cradock an ideal stop over for the traveller between the major centers.
For a small town Cradock offers a surprising array of things to do. It has a remarkable architectural heritage with a number of curiosities, there are museums, there is history (did you know that Paul Kruger was baptized here?); there are sports galore and a variety of excursions for sightseeing both to enjoy the magnificent scenery and to see other curiosities in the district.
Practically on our doorstep is the Mountain Zebra National Park and a bit further away is the Cat Conservation Trust which protects and breeds the smaller and seldom seen smaller feline predators.
