Eendekuil just at the bottom of the Piekenierskloof pass, means “duck shelter” The name is assumed to come from the large numbers of aquatic birds, particularly wild ducks that congregate at the nearby vleis. It is about 30 km from Piketburg and it was the terminus of the Cape Town railway until the end of the Anglo-Boer War in 1902. It is still the railhead for the Citrusdal region on the opposite side of the Olifants River. The village is well known for the quality of cheese produced at a local factory. Milk is transported to the factory from many farms in the area. In season Eendekuil is surrounded by bright yellow fields of canola flowers
