Prince Albert is a town located in the south part of the Great Karoo, a desert region that covers much of South Africa. The town is over 250 years old and boasts a rich history, which can be seen in the numerous historical houses around the area. Some of the most popular things to do here include visiting the shops and outdoor activities, like camping, going on a safari, and mountain biking.

The town is not accessible by public transportation, so you will need to travel here by car, or rent one during your stay. Accommodation here is very much like home and we’ve selected 10 of the best available on Airbnb. Read on to learn more about these accommodations, to help you plan your next trip to Prince Albert, South Africa.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 17, 2024.
