Montagu

Montagu is blessed to be among one of the most popular small towns in the Western Cape  – previously also the Kwela town of the year, Western Cape.

To quote just one media write up about Montagu, as one of the 12 BEST SMALL AND RURAL TOWNS IN THE WESTERN CAPE – by SA Venues

“Just about everyone in Cape Town knows someone with a house in Montagu. The small town on Route 62 in the Klein Karoo is both easily accessible and incredibly beautiful – it’s been described as a Victorian village, its streets lined with Cape Dutch style monuments, surrounded by vineyards, fruit orchards and mountains. A Saturday morning market, a nature garden, access to the surrounding mountains, wine farms, restaurants, hikes, MTB routes and idiosyncrasies like the Bird Tree (ask a townie to explain) and you can understand its popularity.”

Surrounded by the Amazing Cape Fold Mountains and majestic rock faces, Montagu is a definite Adventure destination, from hikes, walks, meanders, climbing, absailing, rock climbing, canyoneering and more.

Look forward to a whole new world of magic and sensual pleasures as you pop through the hole in the wall at Kogmanskloof with its amazing geological folds, faults and a British fort from 1899…

Expect the unexpected….

From the well known Mineral Hot Springs to Flying Feet Bicyle tours, Ghost tours, Tractor trip up the Langeberg, Old World Charm in an American Dream Car, Artisan food, Wine….. and Muskadel (ala David Kramer fame)… Montagu ek drink jou Muskadel!

There are loads of opportunities to play for adults and kids alike.
