Cape Point and Wine Route
Just 5 kms outside Oudtshoorn, on a less frequently travelled road, the colour red grabs your attention from a distance, and entices you to turn off and investigate. Scarecrows made from empty tins welcome you as you turn through the gate and drive into Jamstreet Farm. The distinctive red colour emanates from bright red drums planted with branches which have also been painted red.
A black building standing boldly alone proves to be MOOOI gallery and gift and coffee shop - a surreal exhibition venue, a creative oasis in the desert with a distinctly fresh approach.Transforming a dairy situated in the middle of nowhere into a trendy gallery took a great deal of creativity and bravery. MOOOI is the brainchild of Danie du Plessis and Wim Rheeder.
Jamstreet also offers self-catering accommodation. A luxury rustic cottage adorned with the most amazing artworks, aptly named RELAX, is the ideal base when visiting Oudtshoorn and surrounding areas.
Another surprise on the farm is the first labyrinth in the world built with 6 252 empty wine bottles. And it's not just a labyrinth - the floor plan of the San Vitale church in Ravenna, Italy was used. The farm also has the Jamstreet Amfi - an open air amphi theatre with seating for 1 200 people. It is breathtaking with the Swartberg Mountains as a backdrop. A smaller venue the Jamstreet Plaasteater caters for smaller shows.
It's so true that the little gems in this world are often found in the most unlikely places and MOOOI @ Jamstreet is indeed such a gem. When you're in the vicinity, don't miss this extraordinary place. It'll find its way into your heart!
