Things to know about George (South Africa)
The town of George, which provides the entry point to South Africa's Garden Route in the Western Cape Province is indeed the sixth-oldest city in the country and the first to be formed under British rule. It was given that name in 1811 in homage to King George III, the reigning monarch during that time. Because of the Outeniqua forests, the Dutch East India Company established a Lumberjacks station on-site that later became George in 1776. The Earl of Caledon proclaimed it as Drostdy (magisterial district) on April 23, 1811. Finally, in 1837, George became a city entity. James Read and William Wimmer, two missionaries from London, travelled to Hoogekraal near George in 1812. They delighted Kaptein Dikkop, the chief of the neighbouring Khoikhoi tribe, so much that he invited them to live and work with his tribe. The Khoikhoi were a semi-nomadic race that only cared after its sheep and cattle while lounging in the sunshine for the remaining of the time.
The farmers in the Southern Cape's "Bag-Carriers" region resisted any efforts to educate or better their non-white neighbours, who gained neither civilization nor Christian missionaries. When it was reported in February 1813 that German missionary Reverend Charles Pacalt would take on the mission effort, there was a great deal of excitement. Kaptein Kikkop made numerous attempts to share the faith with his followers, but in conclusion, he was buried outside the mission's cemetery, around 100 meters from the chapel. He had never been a Christian, which was the cause. Near the burial grounds, one can still see his grave, a national monument. In this peaceful area are the tombs of the Rev. Charles Pacalt, the Rev. John Brown Milne, and the Rev. Anderson. The lone Khoikhoi tribe member interred among them on the mission's acreage was Epeneta Jantze. The town is halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth on the Garden Route. However, it is located on a 10-kilometre plateau between the Outeniqua Mountains to the west and the Indian Ocean to the south. To the west is the old town of Pacaltsdorp, now a header that includes suburbs. Sometimes the town is also spoken of as the Garden of Eden. George has everything from magnificent mountains to green farmlands, shopping centres and malls, local produce, charming cafés and restaurants. Beautiful natural regions and excellent beaches are also there in its proximity.
