Description [ correction ]

Montagu village is situated halfway between Cape Town and the Garden Route, on what was known as the 'Uitvlugt Farm' in 1851. It was first named Agter Cogman's Kloof, after the Cogman's Kloof linking the town and railway station. Thereafter it was named after the former secretary of the Cape Colony, John Montagu. It is a popular area for fruit such as apples, pears, apricots and peaches. Adventures and activities such as kloofing, abseiling, rock climbing, fishing, quad biking will keep the visitors thrilled throughout their visit. While, attractions such as the art and craft route, the game lodges, museums, scenery nature gardens, wildflower sport and farm cellars will be just the beginning of the adventurous journey in the village. Montagu is also famous for the hot springs on the outskirts of the town, namely the Montagu Springs and Avalon Springs resorts.

Comments [ leave a comment ]

“Montagu is the western gateway to the Klein Karoo, situated on the route 62 between the Waboom- & Langeberg mountain,. The Keisie and Kingna Rivers have their confluence in Montagu, before running through Cogman's Kloof to Ashton and the Breede River. The town has a peaceful atmosphere with a farm like appearance and beautiful Cape Dutch Homesteads” - Chris Smit, 2009/12/19
